Applications are invited for a studentship on an interdisciplinary project in face recognition. The student will work on automated face processing systems incorporating recent developments in psychology and engineering. The project will lead to hardware implementation of the system on a chip. A project summary is given below.

Candidates should have at least a 2:1 honours degree in electrical engineering, computing science or related discipline. Excellent programming skills in C and C++ are essential and a good understanding of Linux and embedded systems is desirable. Because the final version will be a system on a chip or an embedded device, experience in hardware development is required.

The duration of the studentship is three years, and the successful candidate will receive an annual stipend of £13,290 per annum. PhD fees will be paid.

This studentship is funded by the University of Glasgow Kelvin-Smith scheme.
