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
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',
firstname.lastname@example.org before the deadline of 14/02/2016.
Enquiries should be addressed to email@example.com

At the ETH Zürich, the Institute of Cartography and Geoinformation is looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate for a research project at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering, starting at the earliest possible date (1st of August, 2015 at the latest).
The main objective of the 3-year project Location-Aware Mobile Eye Tracking for Tourist Assistance, funded through an ETH Zurich Research Grant, is the investigation of novel gaze-based interaction methods for pedestrians in urban environments, with a focus on a tourist scenario. The project envisions mobile assistance systems that trigger information services based on a user’s gaze on 3D-objects in a real-world urban environment.
The ideal candidate must have an academic degree in Computer Science, Information Science, Geomatics or related fields, as well as a strong research interest in human-computer interaction. Knowledge of methods in machine learning, computer vision, inferential statistics, as well as strong programming skills (e.g., Java or C++) are required. Background or experience in eye tracking, virtual environments, geographic information science, or related topics is a significant plus. The candidate must have good communication skills in English (oral and writing), be team-oriented and willing to work in an international environment.
