POST-DOC OPENING
IN COMPUTER SCIENCE & MULTIMODAL AFFECTIVE INTERACTION
AT LIMSI-CNRS, FRANCE
****************************************************************

The “Conversational Agents” team at LIMSI-CNRS (30 km south of Paris) 
seeks immediately one qualified postdoctoral researcher in the field of 
multimodal affective interaction.


The candidate will work within the framework of the CARE project 
(Cultural experience: Augmented Reality & Emotion). CARE is a French 
research project funded by the French research agency (ANR). The project 
brings together 7 partners, whose goal is to integrate, adapt and 
develop augmented reality related tools to enhance the emotional impact 
of cultural events and live performances.


Besides the enhancement of the two specific scenarios considered in the 
project (Ballet of Biarritz and Museum of Toulouse), CARE results will 
include improved conception methods as well as new generic interaction 
techniques based on augmented reality technologies and affective 
interaction.


The task of the post-doc candidate will be to model, implement and 
evaluate a model of multimodal affective interaction with an animated 
agent. The model will be used to control expressive 3D facial animations 
from video and motion captured data collected from a dancer's 
performance. Mappings from the captured movements onto the facial 
expressions will be proposed at different levels of abstraction.


The candidates are expected to have an Engineering BSc/Msc degree and a 
PhD in Computer Science. Experience in the following domains will be 
appreciated: real-time 3D graphics, affective computing, virtual avatars.


APPLICATION AND CONTACT
Application deadline is January 31st, 2009.
The Postdoctoral position is for one year. The position is open immediately.
Interested candidates should send a short letter of motivation, along 
with their CV to
