Human Action/Gesture recognition is a challenging area of research that deals with the problem of recognizing people in images, detecting and describing body parts, inferring their spatial configuration, and performing action/gesture recognition from still images or image sequences, also including multi-modal data.
The Fellow expected to contribute in the current lines of research of the hosting group, Human Pose Recovery and Behavior Analysis from multi-modal input data. In particular, we want the fellow to perform advances in the following topics:
- Human-based and deep learning-based feature extraction for human analysis;
- Compositional models analysis for human pose recovery and scene understanding;
- Temporal series and behavior analysis.
PROJECT SUPERVISOR & HOSTING GROUP
Prof. Sergio Escalera will supervise the Fellow with the collaboration of The Human Pose Recovery and Behavior Analysis team (HUPBA) at CVC.
HUPBA is one of the most active and internationally recognized teams in image analysis for human behavior recognition. It has received several international grants and projects, including the participation in European projects and the organization of international challenges.
CANDIDATE ’S PROFILE
A PhD in computer science or a related field is required.
The applicants must have experience in computer vision, pattern recognition and machine learning techniques, and be able to demonstrate strong analytical and programming skills.
The applicants are expected to be fluent in both oral and written communication in English. They should work well in a team, while demonstrating initiative and independence, and willing to supervise PhD students.
THE COMPUTER VISION CENTER
The selected candidate will work in the Computer Vision Centre (CVC), Barcelona, a research institute comprising more than 100 researchers and support staff, dedicated to computer vision research and knowledge transfer. With a strong international projection and links to the industry, the Computer Vision Centre offers an exciting environment for scientific career development.
The Computer Vision Centre has a plan for expansion of its permanent research staff base, and has received the “HR Excellence in Research” award as a provider and supporter of a stimulating and favourable working environment.
