PhD Studentship in Cognitive Vision
Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work in collaboration with an (EPSRC
funded) research project exploring the application of machine learning in activity
recognition from video. The PhD topic will be to explore the use of qualitative spatial
representations within the overall context of the project, drawing on ideas from computer
vision, machine learning, knowledge representation and automated reasoning. The
successful candidate will thus gain in-depth expertise spanning all four areas  a
conjunction that we believe has excellent potential for the future development of
cognitive vision systems.
The successful candidate will be jointly based in our computer vision and knowledge
representation research groups (, working with Profs
Tony Cohn and David Hogg. The studentship is open to citizens of any country and will
pay a stipend of approximately 12,300 p.a. plus fees. Non-EU applicants will be
required to make-up the difference between UK/EU and non-EU fee levels (see the
