Research Assistant - 024854

Location: Gilmorehill Campus
Job Family: Research & Teaching
Position Type: Full-Time
Salary Range: £28,660 - £32,236

The post-holder will contribute to a EPSRC-funded project on “Understanding Scenes and Events through Joint Parsing, Cognitive Reasoning and Lifelong Learning” working with Professor Philippe Schyns. There is a strong expectation that the funding will be renewed for a further two years. The aim of the project is to collect data from human observers who categorize scenes in controlled visual environments and to contribute to adding ‘common sense’ to computer vision algorithms. Interaction with researchers in computer vision and cognition on this MURI consortium (Multi-disciplinary University Research Initiative, US Department of Defence) and collaborators is a critical element of the post. Specifically, the job requires expert knowledge in visual cognition and eye movements, including their analysis.

The post-holder will also be expected to contribute to the formulation and submission of research publications and research proposals as well as help manage and direct this complex and challenging project, as opportunities allow.
