Human Communications Technology

Position Available: Post-doctoral Research Fellow

The Human Communications Technology (HCT) Lab University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Annual, renewable, starting immediately
$40,000-$60,000 CDN depending upon qualifications

The Human Communications Technology (HCT) lab performs leading edge
research in human computer interfaces. We currently have 3 years
funding for research involving multi-camera systems for human tracking
and multi-capture single-image photography. We use a variety of cameras
and software/hardware platforms for conducting the research. Our
ultimate goal is to deploy a prototype system into a sports facility,
such as a hockey rink, for interactive video broadcast of processed
multicamera video data during the Olympics in Vancouver in 2010.

This research associate position offered involves being the lead
technical engineer on the project as well as development of the core
technologies to deploy the infrastructure for the multi-camera system.
You will be working and coordinating with visiting faculty, post-docs,
graduate students and undergraduate who are working on the
project.  David Lowe and Jim Little of the Computer Science
Department at UBC are also involved in this project.

Skill that are important are:
1. knowledge of multi-camera image processing techniques at a
researcher level (i.e. Ph.D.) 2. knowledge of computer architectures
for distributed and parallel processing 3. good communication skills
including writing conference and journal papers 4. good people skills
for working and coordinating the project In addition, the following
skills are an asset:
1. knowledge of FPGA programming
2. experience with developing large scale software projects 3. experience with multi-media database development

The fellow is expected to work closely with the principal
investigators, other post-docs and students on the project. The
successful candidate is expected to publish in international
conferences and journals with the team of researchers on the project.

This position is ideal for someone looking for a stepping stone to a
faculty position as there are many aspects that are the same as a
junior faculty position.

Deadline for applications: Feb. 20, 2006. Hiring will continue until a suitable candidate is found.

Please contact Dr. Sid Fels, ssfels@ece.ubc.ca for more information about how to apply.
