Title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Research profile: Recognised Researcher (R2)
Work place: University of Rouen Normandy
The “Perception and Interaction” group (P&I), part of the LITIS lab (150 researchers), University of Rouen Normandy (France), is involved in multidisciplinary research at the intersection of computer vision, computer science, mathematics, mechatronics and cognitive science. The group models and designs mainly intelligent wearable systems for visually impaired people with multimodal ICT technologies (vision, tactile, audio, AI). The group worked/works on fundamental research problems (models, algorithms and experimental evaluation) and their application to visually impaired persons (VIP) interaction with the space (mobility, art perception). Several international and national research projects ("Smart glasses", "HUmanPERception", ACCESSPACE, NAV-VIR, Museum Guide) have been or are implemented in collaboration with industrial and academic partners (CEA, Collège de France, CNRS, InsideVision, MIT, DoD, Panama University, Pavia University, Kaunas University, Technical University of Lodz, etc.). The group has received the USA PETA’s “Price for ethical technological research” (2012), and the CCAH’s “Applied research on deficiency” award (2017).
It is expected that the post-doc fellow will contribute to ongoing research projects (e.g. « Museum Guide » project , ACCESSPACE), and significantly advanced state-of-the-art in all aspects of VIP’s interaction with the space via embedded perception and man-machine interactive wearable systems.
This includes the following sub-topics/subtasks to be addressed during the postdoc :
PhD in Computer Science, Robotics or closely related field
Good theoretical and practical background in
Good programming skills (python, Java, C/C++; Matlab)
Knowledge of 3D modelling and 3D printing (e.g. Maya, Blender, SolidWorks)
Theoretical knowledge of Bayesian models will be a plus
Required languages: French, English
