Postdoctoral Position in Affect Recognition, University College London, UK

https://atsv7.wcn.co.uk/search_engine/jobs.cgi?owner=5041178&ownertype=fair&jcode=1118024

Post-doctoral Research Associate in Affect Recognition

31,620 - 33,375 per annum starting salary, including London Allowance

 
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral Research Associate position at the University College London Interaction Centre (UCLIC), working on the recognition of affect from physiological signals as part of the SENSORIA project.  The project aims to investigate how the sensorial experience of products in the digital environment can be captured and used to provide a greater personalization of the product.  We aim at providing the developer and consumers a means to articulate what is difficult to articulate: people's sensory perceptions of the different textiles commonly used in clothing products.  The role of the postdoc within the project will be to investigate the use of biosensors to automatically capture consumers perceptual reactions (visual or tactile) to textile.  The project is interdisciplinary and involves three other UK groups from the University of the Arts London, Imperial College and Heriot-Watt University.

The candidate will work in the group of Dr Nadia Berthouze (http://www.uclic.ucl.ac.uk/people/n.berthouze/) within the UCL Interaction Centre. UCLIC (http://www.uclic.ucl.ac.uk/) is a Centre of Excellence in Human-Computer Interaction drawing its members from both the Computer Science Department and the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences.

The post is funded starting January 2010 and is of duration 18 months.

Applicants should have obtained a PhD in a relevant subject.  Ideal candidates will have a strong background in machine learning and bio-signal analysis and possibly in theories of emotion.  They will have experience of using bio-sensors such as GSR or EMG.  They should have potential for excellent research and the capability and motivation to collaborate within an interdisciplinary research group with people from Design and Art disciplines and various areas within Computer Science.

Closing date is 3 November 2009, and interviews are on 12 November.
