Research Fellow and Postdoctoral positions in computer vision and wearable sensing for bio-motion analysis

Post Durations: Up to 3 years

CLARITY: Centre for Sensor Web Technologies
Dublin City University

As a result of recent research funding success, the CLARITY centre at DCU seeks both a Postdoctoral Researcher and a Research Fellow to work in the areas of computer vision and wearable sensors for motion capture and reconstruction. CLARITY is an SFI-funded CSET (Centre for Science Engineering and Technology), a research centre that focuses on the intersection between two important research areas - Adaptive Sensing and Information Discovery.  It is a partnership between University College Dublin, Dublin City University and the Tyndall National Institute.  CLARITY employs over 100 researchers including PhD students, postdoctoral researches and administrative staff, across the three sites and has over 40 ongoing research projects funded by SFI, Enterprise Ireland, Marine Institute, Environmental Protection Agency, EU FP7, European Space Agency, and directly by our industry partners.

The position is funded as part of 3-year EU FP7 project that will investigate low-cost approaches to motion capture and synthesis/reconstruction for traditional sports and games using both computer vision and wearable inertial sensors.

The multidisciplinary project consortium features both academic and industrial partners with world-class expertise in computer vision, graphics, motion capture and multimedia information retrieval, along with high-profile end user partners. Working closely with sport science researchers in the School of Health and Human Performance, Dublin City University and collaborating with national sporting organizations around Europe, research will target novel forms of motion capture for both elite and non-elite athletes.

The successful candidate should have completed a PhD in computer vision / pattern recognition or wearable inertial sensing or a closely related discipline and have an interest in human motion analysis, video tracking, body sensor networks and information fusion. Candidates' publication records will be carefully considered as part of the selection process. Candidates will be expected to work closely with other project partners including traveling to partners' sites to represent DCU's contribution to the project. Experience in international collaboration and research management would be an advantage.
