The UCL Interaction Centre (http://web4.cs.ucl.ac.uk/uclic/) at the University College London (UK) is seeking an outstanding PhD student to contribute to our project on modelling affective body language in patients with chronic back pain. By discriminating between body movements due to physical pain and those due to the emotional experience of pain, it is expected that new generation healthcare technology can be developed to help patients by providing them not only with feedback on their movement performance, but also psychological support during self-directed rehabilitation. This project is led by Dr Nadia Berthouze (UCL Interaction Centre) and Dr Amanda C de C Williams (Clinical Health Psychology), and involves patients from the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery.

Candidates should have, or expect to have, a good MSc (or equivalent) in Computer Science, a solid background in Machine Learning, and excellent programming skills. A keen desire to work in a multi-disciplinary context is essential. Interest and/or previous experience in affective computing is advantageous, but not required.

Eligibility: Candidates should be UK citizens OR be European citizens and have resided in the UK throughout the last 3 years. The studentship will cover academic tuition fees plus a standard EPSRC stipend.

To apply, or to get further information, please contact Dr Nadia Berthouze at n.berthouze@ucl.ac.uk. Applications will be processed until the position is filled.
