Research Assistant position for gaze-tracking project at QMUL

We are recruiting a Research Assistant for the four-month project 
'Evaluation of commodity gaze-trackers for large-scale 
neuropsychological studies'. The objective is to characterize the 
performance of new gaze-tracking systems (e.g. EyeTribe), for 
clinical and psychophysical applications. This will involve 
user experiments, as well as computational modelling.

This is a joint project, supervised by Miles Hansard (EECS) 
and Isabelle Mareschal (Experimental Psychology), and funded 
by a Wellcome Trust grant to the QMUL Life Sciences Institute. 
The successful candidate will join a research group working on 
3D vision, eye-movements, and scene-modelling. There will be 
opportunities to work with a range of new devices, including 
head-mounted displays (Oculus Rift).

Candidates should have previous experience of Matlab and/or 
JavaScript programming. Knowledge of signal processing and 
data analysis is also essential. Previous experience of 
eye-tracking, web-based experiments, or computer vision would be useful.

Candidates should have a PhD in computer science, engineering, 
experimental psychology, or a related field. Candidates in the 
final stages of PhD submission (or having an MSc plus relevant 
experience) will also be considered.

The post is full-time and available immediately for 4 months, 
to start no later than 01/04/2016. The salary will be in the 
range £32,052-£35,672 per annum. Applicants *must already* have 
permission to work in the UK, for the duration of the post.

Applications should consist of a CV (including publications, 
and the email addresses of two referees), as well as a one-page 
research statement (including details of programming experience). 
These PDFs should be emailed, with subject 'Gaze RA Application', 
tomiles.hansard@qmul.ac.uk before the deadline of 14/02/2016. 

Enquiries should be addressed to miles.hansard@qmul.ac.uk
