PhD Studentship in Computer Vision, UWE, Bristol


PhD Studentship in Computer Vision

A fully funded 3 year PhD studentship is available for UK students in the Machine Vision Laboratory at the Bristol Institute of Technology, UWE, Bristol, UK. The research will involve devising novel ways to deduce identity from 3D face data using technology already developed. The work will be closely related to a large EPSRC project currently underway to develop robust facial recognition technology based on 3D representations of the human face captured using photometric stereo. The laboratory's current work is being undertaken in collaboration with Imperial College, the Home Office (Scientific Development Branch), General Dynamics UK Ltd and Identity Solutions Ltd and offers a unique opportunity to work within a motivated team in an exciting and topical multidisciplinary field. Further information relating to the work can be found at: http://www.uwe.ac.uk/cems/research/groups/mvl/projects/photoface.html. It is expected that the work will be published in journals and/or presented at international conferences.

Applicants should hold a first or upper second class Honours degree in computing, physical sciences or engineering. Experience in programming is a requirement and applicants with a strong mathematical background are particularly welcome.

The bursary will be at the Research Council bursary rate, which is 12,600 in the academic year 2008-09, and is not subject to UK taxes. In addition, tuition fees will be waived for the duration of the bursary (3 years).
For any further information and the application forms, please contact the Graduate School Office, Bristol Institution of Technology via e-mail: bitgraduateschool@uwe.ac.uk

For an informal discussion about the project, please contact: Professor Melvyn Smith, e-mail: Melvyn.Smith@uwe.ac.uk or Dr Gary Atkinson, e-mail: Gary.Atkinson@uwe.ac.uk

A likely start date for the successful candidate will be on 1 September 2008.

Regards

Melvyn Smith
