PhD position in Computer Vision and Image Processing at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland


Contact: anil.kokaram@tcd.ie

PhD position in Digital Cinema/Image Processing at Trinity College
Dublin, Ireland, 16000-19000 annual living allowance, fees paid.
Keywords: digital cinema, computer vision, motion estimation, 3-D
geometry, stereo.

The Sigmedia Laboratory at the EEE Dept, Trinity College Dublin is
seeking applications for an EU funded Graduate position with the
laboratory starting as early as possible in 2008. The successful
candidate will work toward the PhD under the supervision of Prof Anil
Kokaram in a project entitled i3DPost. This was one of the top ranked
projects in the latest EU funding round for Framework 7. The project
involves collaboration  with The Foundry (www.thefoundry.co.uk), a
visual effects software house in SOHO, London as well as Quantic Dream
(games developer in Paris) and Buf (post production house in Paris).
This high profile project will see the candidate working with the best
technical people in the digital cinema industry especially as the
project team will also have contact with Digital Domain, a major
Hollywood post production house responsible for many major films and
games effects work e.g. Halo, Gears of War, Spiderman, XMen and so on.
The project sits at the boundary between cinema post production and
high end graphics for games development. The idea is to exploit
multi-view camera data to improve motion based and 3D object handling
work in post-production. The candidate will work with core team
members that have all won Academy Awards in 2007 for science and
engineering. We seek applications from candidates with at least a
first degree (of at least Upper 2.1 standard) in a numerate discipline
e.g. Mathematics, Electronics or Computer Science. Experience with
image and video processing, C++ and Matlab is a distinct advantage.
Previous technical work in projects involving, statistical signal
processing, motion estimation, 3D geometry and feature point
identification would also be welcome.

Please send to Prof. Kokaram (anil.kokaram@tcd.ie)  a CV and contact
details of 2 referees who have agreed to speak on the candidate's
behalf. See www.sigmedia.tv . Dr. Francois Pitie fpitie@mee.tcd.ie
(team leader at Sigmedia) at www.sigmedia.tv is available to discuss
the lifestyle of the laboratory with interested candidates. The
stipend for a graduate student in i3DPost is generous, from 16,000 to
19,000 Euros/annum (depending on qualifications and experience) for
the correct individual, in addition all College fees are covered.
