A postdoc position in Computer Vision and Planning under Uncertainty
is available immediately at the University of Dundee, Scotland

PostDoc Job in Computer Vision and Planning under Uncertainty
Job Reference: 	AAE/2089

Applications are invited from highly qualified researchers for a
Research Fellowship available immediately to work on an American
Alzheimer's funded research project under the Everyday Technologies
for Alzheimer's Care (ETAC) program. The project is jointly held
between the University of Dundee, Scotland, and the University of
Toronto, Canada. The successful candidate will be based at the School
of Computing, on the University of Dundee's main campus in Dundee,
Scotland, and will have opportunities for collaborative work in
Canada. This fixed-term post is available immediately for a period of
18 months.

The successful candidate, who will ideally hold a relevant PhD and
excellent research and publication record, will work with Dr. Jesse
Hoey in the development of an assistive device to facilitate creative
expression for persons with Alzheimer's disease. The research builds
upon a large existing body of work into similar devices that use video
cameras to monitor a user with a cognitive disability and that make
decisions using a partially observable Markov decision process
(POMDP). The research will be informed by participatory design work at
host institutions, and will be clinically tested once complete.

Informal enquiries may be directed to Dr. Jesse Hoey
(jessehoey at computing.dundee.ac.uk). Further information can be found
