    Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research assistant to work
    with
    Frank Pollick on a EPSRC funded project ?Recognising the Style of Human
    Movement? for three years. You will conduct psychological experiments
    and
    computational studies on characterising which features of human movement
    are essential for recognising human movement style (e.g. emotion,
    gender,
    identity) and apply these findings to the generation of synthetic human
    movement from movement libraries. The post-holder will join a team of
    researchers at Glasgow working on this and related topics as well as

    related subject. An ideal applicant would also have prior experience in
    one or more of the fields of visual psychophysics, visual cognition,
    motor
    psychophysics or computational modelling as well as programming skills
    (MatLab/C++) and knowledge of techniques for the computer animation of
    human movement.

    Applicants who do not meet all of the above requirements but who have
    strengths in particular areas, or who have the enthusiasm, willingness
    and
    aptitude to develop the required skills will also be considered.

    Salary will be in the range 17,626 - 19,681 p.a. according to age and
    experience.
