Fully-funded PhD Studentship at Bournemouth University
Deadline: 1 November 2015
Open to: UK/EU and International students
Scholarship: a maintenance grant of £14,000 per annum
University, UK is offering fully-funded PhD studentship for the
research project “Time-varying 3D Face Reconstruction” which aims to
generate a sequence of moving 3D faces in slow motion, to use for extracting 3D
cues of expressions in computer animation and capturing subtle expressions as
studied in Psychology. This project will also likely bring a promising
cutting-edge technology to the Forensics and Security field. For example, one
of research foci is to extract 3D cues of a face, enhancing witness memory to
aid manhunts and Identity Parades. Due to the limited viewpoint variance and a
lack of depth cues in 2D images/videos, the available reconstruction methods
inevitably have unbearable distortions. This project will tackle this
challenge, further reconstructing a sequence of 3D faces with expressions from
a video/image sequence. Further research will apply such 3D approach separately
to facial expression editing in animation production and identifying subtle
expressions of emotion in Psychology. This will test the hypothes is that the
reconstructed 3D faces can provide more expression cues than the 2D
Funded Studentships are open to both UK/EU and
International students unless otherwise specified. Candidates for funded
PhD studentship must demonstrate outstanding qualities and be motivated to complete
a PhD in 3 years. All candidates must satisfy the University’s minimum doctoral
entry criteria for studentships of an honours degree at Upper Second Class (2.1)
and/or an appropriate Masters degree. An IELTS (Academic) score of
6.5 minimum (or equivalent) is essential for candidates for whom English
is not their first language.
Funded candidates will receive a maintenance grant of
£14,000 (unless otherwise specified) per annum, to cover their living
expenses and have their fees waived for 36 months. In addition, research
costs, including field work and conference attendance, will be met.
