Computer Vision, Human Motion analysis, PhD Case Studentship

PhD Case Studentship 
School of Technology, Department of Computing 
Three year PhD Case studentship available to work in world leading computer vision group under the supervision of Professor Philip Torr http://cms.brookes.ac.uk/staff/PhilipTorr. 


The project will be on basic research on algorithms to analyse the actions and pose of a human from multiple cameras. There is some flexibility in the topic and personal initiative is encouraged. 

The Oxford Brookes vision group http://cms.brookes.ac.uk/computervision is a new, friendly and productive group engaged in active research in several areas of computer vision, including motion capture, object recognition, human motion analysis, segmentation and new view synthesis. We have strong industrial ties with Sharp (working on 3D displays), Sony (on interactive computer games) and Vicon (working on human motion capture). 
Applicants would be expected to have a very strong grounding in mathematics and strong exam grades. The studentship provides a stipend in line with EPSRC rates (with the possibility of a top-up from Vicon) and covers the full-time tuition fees for a maximum of three years at the home/EU rate. 

The basic rules for eligibility are: 


If you have been a UK resident for the last three years  you may receive fees and stipend support. 
If you are an EU national (but have not been a resident of the UK for the last three years)  you may only receive your fees. 
If you are a non-EU national and do not qualify on residency grounds (note full-time education does not count as residency for non-EU nationals)  you may not receive any support from training grants. 
So to be eligible you must be a UK citizen or have lived in the UK for the past three years. 
The topic would be understanding of human actions and is sponsored by Vicon http://www.vicon.com/.
