PhD Studentships in Computer Vision

Applications are invited for two fully funded 3 year PhD studentships in 
the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition group at the University of 
York, UK. The research involved will be in the area of 3D face 
appearance modelling, shape-from-shading and face recognition. The 
successful applicant will be part of a team working to advance the state 
of the art in 3D face processing in images.

Applicants must have at least a 2.1 degree (or equivalent) in Computer 
Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics or a related 
discipline. Previous experience of computer vision, image processing or 
computer graphics is desirable. Good programming skills and a strong 
mathematical background are prerequisites.

The studentship will cover fees (at UK/EU Level) and includes a stipend 
(currently 12,600 per annum) and provision for conference travel. The 
studentship is to start on or shortly after the 1st of April 2008.

The CVPR group is based in the Department of Computer Science. The 
Department was awarded a 5* classification in the 1996 and 2001 Research 
Assessment Exercises (RAE), and was one of just 3 computer science 
departments to receive a 6* funding allocation in March 2003. The 
Department also received an Excellent rating in the most recent 
teaching quality assessment (TQA) and was awarded one of the 1996 Queens 
Anniversary Medals for Higher Education.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr William Smith (email:
