PhD position, Affective computing, UniGeneva, Switzerland

FULL TIME PhD POSITION, ANALYSIS OF PHYSIOLOGICAL SIGNALS FOR AFFECTIVE COMPUTING, UNIVERSITY OF GENEVA, SWITZERLAND

CONTEXT

The CVML – Computer Vision and Multimedia Laboratory (http://vision.unige.ch) and its Multimodal Interaction Group (http://vision.unige.ch/MMI) are looking for a PhD student in the field of physiological signals analysis and human-computer interaction. The general goal of the project is to use information derived from non-invasive physiological measurements to better taylor computer interfaces.

The CVML conducts research in stochastic signal/image processing, data-hiding, content-based multimedia indexing and retrieval, multimodal interaction. Research is sponsored by various organisms (Swiss, European, private), and is conducted within the Computer Science Center of the University of Geneva (http://cui.unige.ch) which hosts about 150 researchers.

Within the CVML, the Multimodal Interaction Group is interested in developing various forms of non-standard interaction: audio-haptic (for visually impaired persons), and using physiological signals (brain-computer interaction, affect-based interaction). Work is performed in cooperation with various other teams, within and outside of Switzerland.

POSITION REQUIREMENTS

The ideal candidate should hold a MSc degree in computer/engineering science, with strong emphasis on: statistical signal processing, analysis and classification, preferably on physiological signals such as EEG, ECG, EMG; audio/image/video processing and analysis.

The position is full-time, and includes participation to the teaching activities of the Computer Science Department (roughly 1 day/week or less on average).

Starting date is as soon as possible.

Due to the international character of the laboratory, English is usually used as a working language; good knowledge of written and spoken English is mandatory. French is the spoken language in Geneva. Knowledge of French will be an asset; otherwise it is expected that the hired person would learn French in a reasonable amount of time in order to participate to the teaching activities.

Geneva (http://www.geneva.ch) is a city noted for its quality of life and international character. About a third of Geneva residents are foreigners; this is reflected in the composition of University of Geneva’s population (http://www.unige.ch). France is just a few miles away, and most European cities just a few hours away be it by train of plane.
