Project Title: Sign-language Recognition from Real-time Video
Supervisor: Dr. Alistair Sutherland

Applications are now invited for the position of Post Doctoral Research Fellow to work in the School of Computing, Dublin City University, as part of a team developing a system to recognise human Sign Language from real-time video streams. The project combines computer vision techniques - such as multi-scale processing and principal component analysis - with linguistic techniques such as Hidden Markov Models. The project is funded by Science Foundation Ireland under the Research Frontiers scheme.

Responsibilities / Duties of role

The successful candidate will work as part of a team consisting of another Post Doctoral Researcher and three Postgraduates. He/She will have the opportunity to work on many aspects of the system from hand-shape recognition, motion recognition, background and illumination invariance, to modelling of Sign language grammar and machine translation. 

Applicants must have a Ph.D. and have experience in one or more of the following areas:
* Statistical pattern recognition
* Real-time video processing
* Wavelets or Multi-scale techniques
* Principal Component Analysis or eigenspace techniques
* Hidden markov models
* Motion tracking
* Deformable object recognition
* Human motion analysis
* Machine translation

Duration: 3 years

Salary:  Commensurate upon experience
