Three Postdoctoral Research Associates (UCL and QMUL)

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research posts for an  
EPSRC project on “Analysing Dynamic Change in Faces” with Prof Alan  
Johnston and Prof Celia Heyes (Experimental Psychology, UCL) and one  
with Prof Peter McOwan (Computer Science, QMUL). The project will  
develop new tools for photorealistic facial animation, which will be  
exploited to study the perception of dynamic events through  
psychophysical experiments on facial movement recognition and  
imitation. The researcher at UCL (Post 1) will join Prof Johnston’s  
lab and will be an experimental psychologist with excellent technical  
and computing skills. The researcher at QMUL (Post 2) will be a  
computer scientist with experience in video-based computer vision or  
dynamic 3D shape acquisition. The third postdoctoral Associate (Post3)  
will join a BBSRC funded project on “From Local to Global Motion  
Perception”. Candidates for this post should be psychophysicists with  
an interest in computational modelling. For posts 1 and 3 the salary  
will be at grade 7 (£27,466-£29138 + £2649 from 01/05/08) depending on  
knowledge and experience. For post 2, the salary will be in the range  
of £30,968 – 34,518 per annum (inclusive of London Allowance) on Grade  
5 of the Queen Mary Pay and Grading Structure.
