Applications are invited for two fully funded PhD Student to undertake 
research in the area of Human Motion Analysis and Understanding. One 
position is supported by an EU project and falls in the general area of 
modeling and recognition of Human Actions from multi-view image 
sequences. The work is expected to build on recent developments in 
Computer Vision and Machine Learning for learning human facial/body/hand 
gestures from few examples, with emphasis on transfer learning for 
cross-modality, cross-category and cross-view learning. The second 
position is supported by the school of Electronic Engineering and 
Computer Science and can address any of the problems of tracking, 
segmentation, 3D modelling, recognition, in the context of Human Motion 


The applicant should have
  - a degree (preferably MSc) in Computer Science or 
Electrical/Electronic Engineering
  - excellent problem solving and analytical skills.
  - Good programming skills and preferably experience with Matlab.
  - Experience in one of the fields of Computer Vision and/or Machine 
Learning, and/or Statistical Pattern Recognition and/or Image 
processing. Preferably an MSc thesis in one of those areas
  - Good mathematical background, especially in linear algebra and 

The studentships cover both tuition fees and a stipend.

The research is supervised by Dr Ioannis Patras at School of Electronic 
Engineering and Computer Science, Queen Mary University of London.
