UniGeneva, Switzerland.

The CVML - Computer Vision and Multimedia Laboratory and its Multimodal Interaction Group are looking for a PhD student in the field of physiological signals analysis and human-computer interaction.

The general goal of the project is to use information derived from non-invasive physiological measurements to better taylor computer interfaces.

The CVML conducts research in stochastic signal/image processing, data-hiding, content-based multimedia indexing and retrieval, multimodal interaction. Research is sponsored by various organisms (Swiss, European, private), and is conducted within the Computer Science Center of the University of Geneva ( which hosts about 150 researchers.

Within the CVML, the Multimodal Interaction Group is interested in developing various forms of non-standard interaction:

Audio-haptic (for visually impaired persons), and using physiological signals (brain-computer interaction, affect-based interaction).

Work is performed in cooperation with various other teams, within and outside of Switzerland.

Position Requirements

The ideal candidate should hold a MSc degree in computer/engineering science, with strong emphasis on:

Statistical signal processing, analysis and classification, preferably on physiological signals such as EEG, ECG, EMG; audio/image/video processing and analysis.
