One PhD fellowship is available at the GREYC Lab, Normandie University, 
Caen, France.

Pr. Christophe Charrier is offering one PhD fellowship on multimodal 
hand biometric recognition system under uncertain reasoning.

*Context: *

The E-payment & Biometrics reserach unit conducts research activities in 
biometrics, particularly on the design of biometric systems as an 
authentication solution for a secure electronic transaction. Biometric 
authentication is an interesting solution for one part to enhance the 
security of a logical access to any information system and another part 
to simplify the use for a user. GREYC is recognized for its work on 
biometric behavioral systems (dynamic keystrokes, dynamic interaction 
with touch screens, and so on), the update of user's biometric model to 
take into account behavioral changes (Romain Giot's thesis) or the 
evaluation of biometric systems (Mohamad El Abded's thesis).

In this context, a fully funded PhD fellowship is proposed between the 
GREYC Laboratory (Caen, France) and the Moduleus Company (Tours, France) 
for a three-year co-localised position. The successful candidate will 
work under the supervision of Dr. Christophe Charrier (GREYC) and Adrien 
Bailly (Moduleus Cie.).

*Description: *
Biometrics consist in identifying or verifying the identity of 
individual in an automatic way. The recognition of an individual is 
usually a non-invasive, fast and easy-to-use solution. It is possible to 
extract multiple information such as facial shape, veins of the hand 
(from a near infrared acquisition), fingerprints, and so on.

The proposed PhD subject will investigate how to develop an original and 
robust method to recognize and identify individual from the combination 
of only biometric hand data to ensure a high level of identification for 
a biometric system. At this time, existing methods do not guarantee a 
high level of identification: the aim is then to develop a method that 
will serve as an international reference for both academic research and 
industrial applications.
A non-intrusive ultrasound-based method will be used to acquire 
different biometric elements of the epidermis as well as the different 
dermal layers of the hand or of any part of the body in a 
semi-simultaneous manner. For each acquired layer, an extraction process 
of the most relevant information associated to a confidence index (and 
or quality) will be investigated and designed. Finally, a process of 
combining different biometric elements under uncertain reasoning will be 
studied in order to make the final decision. The developed method can be 
extended to evaluate the evolution through time of individual's 
biometric parameters in the context of medical applications.


Applications should include the following:
•    Letter of interest
•    Official transcripts (with grades and ranking) for Master 1 and 
Master 2 (or equivalent)
•    Scientific CV
•    List of publications (if any)
•    Name & contact information of at least 2 Referees

*Application deadline: June 15th (application will be processed on the 

*PhD start:* October/November 2019.

This position is subject to security clearance because of the ZRR 
qualification of the lab.

*Place: *  GREYC Lab, UMR CNRS 6072, E-payment & Biometrics research 
unit, Caen, France
          Moduleus, Tours, France


     Salary : ~1800 euros monthly gross salary .
