Postdoctoral position in Digital avatars/Computer Vision/Machine Learning

Catégorie : Post-doctorant

We are looking for ambitious and motivated candidates for 18 months post-doctoral position in digital avatars, computer vision and machine learning.


What are you going to do?

Digital avatars can engage with humans to interact socially. However, to design a realistic digital avatar with a natural interaction, the most important challenge is to understand how the changes in facial expressions and postures influence the social interactions. We will combine methods from computer vision, machine learning and cognitive sciences to design “an empathic” digital avatar which looks like human beings and can engage a natural interaction with them. This digital avatar should have spontaneous dynamic movements of the face and postures.

In this project we will develop a data-driven approach. Indeed, over the past few years major developments in deep learning have enabled important advancements in artificial intelligence. As in many other computer vision tasks, deep learning has brought revolutionary advances in human behaviour understanding from visual data. Deep models are now effective not only in detecting and recognizing human faces, actions and activities but also in generating realistic human-like behavioral data. This project will attempt to achieve the following scientific and technological goals:

You are expected to:

  • write high impact scientific publications,
  • present your work at leading conferences,

What do we require?

  • PhD degree in computer science, applied mathematics or electrical engineering, with a focus on computer vision/machine learning/deep learning.
  • high-quality publications in the field (computer vision, machine learning, affective computing
  • fluency in English, both written and spoken;

Job application

The position is expected to be filled before 31th July 2020. Please send the following information in a single PDF file to Professor Mohamed Daoudi http://www.cristal.univ-lille.fr/~daoudi, mohamed.daoudi@imt-lille-douai.fr subject [PostDocAvatar]:

  • a letter of motivation (1page maximum);
  • a curriculum vitae, including list of publications;
  • a list of two references from different institutes.

About the Lille City

Lille city has a convenient location in the European highspeed rail network. It lies on the Eurostar line to London (1:20 hour journey).
