You will join an established research group within a highly rated research department, with an excellent computing and software infrastructure for first class research, modern facilities and close links with industry.

The work will involve the use of computer vision and machine learning for the identification, tracking and estimation of humans in video with specific application to the recognition of sign language. But there are also opportunities to contribute to other projects including autonomous robotics, UAVs and autonomous vehicles subject to skill set. The applicant should have (or be in the final stages of completing) a PhD in a related area with a track record of publishing high quality research. They should have good analytical and programming skills and experience of computer vision and machine learning. Previous experience of real time systems development, OpenCV, ROS, PCL and deep learning would be advantageous. Applicants are expected to be proactive, to support other researchers and to be self-motivated.
