University of Sussex Funded PhD position in Wearable Technologies and Ubiquitous Computing
The Wearable Technologies Laboratory (Dr. Daniel Roggen, http://www.sussex.ac.uk/strc/research/wearable), part of the Sensor Technology Research Centre at the University of Sussex (UK), is looking for candidates for a PhD in the field of Wearable/Mobile/Ubiquitous Computing and Activity/Context Recognition.
As wearables become accepted by the general public, there is a tremendous potential to use them as smart assistive devices that can react to specific user activities, contexts and needs. Developments in flexible electronics also opens up new possibilities for wearables and implantables.
Several PhD research projects are available; the interested candidate must indicate preference for one of the following research topics:
1. Open-ended activity and context awareness in wearable computing
2. Wearable technologies and applications
3. Low-power contextual awareness in flexible wearable electronics
For more details on these projects, see http://www.sussex.ac.uk/strc/research/wearable/positions
The selected candidate will join an interdisciplinary research centre with state of the art computing and electronics facilities and a wide range of technologies at hand: augmented reality glasses, smartwatches, novel sensor technologies, ad-hoc sensor nodes, etc.
Depending on the project, some of the research areas you may come in contact during your PhD include signal processing, applied machine learning, data mining, big data, cloud services, crowd-sourcing, sensor technologies, mobile/embedded programming, human-computer interaction, circuit design, etc.
The deadline for applications is December 17th.
The positions are to be filled by December 31st.
