The University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies (USC-ICT) has an immediate opening for outstanding recent PhD or Postdoc with expertise in nonverbal behavior understanding and analyses, machine learning (with a focus on deep learning) and multimodal social signal processing. The opening is for a Research Scientist and there is the opportunity to become Research Assistant Professor in USC’s Computer Science Department, if the candidate is so inclined. The position comes with considerable resources and a chance to help shape the direction of nonverbal research at ICT’s virtual human’s group. The successful candidate will work directly with Jonathan Gratch and Stefan Scherer to develop their own research agenda related to human nonverbal behavior understanding and analysis. ICT is a leader in virtual humans, emotion and social behavior research. Beyond collaborating with us there will be opportunities to leverage ICT’s broad research strengths including David Traum’s Natural Language group, Skip Rizzo’s Medical VR group, Hao Li’s Graphics Lab, the Mixed Reality Lab, and USC’s Center for Body Computing. The ideal candidate would be able to start as early as the start of the spring semester. The candidate can assume the position of Research Scientist (focusing solely on research) or apply for the role of Research Assistant Professor that will afford the opportunity to advise PhD students and teach in the CS department at USC. Please contact Jonathan Gratch (gratch@ict.usc.edu) or Stefan Scherer (scherer@ict.usc.edu) to express interest or request additional information about the position.
