[visionlist] Fully-funded PhD in biologically-inspired computer vision for augmented reality and wearable assistive displays

3 year fully-funded PhD scholarship is available at Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia to develop and evaluate  biologically-inspired computer vision and visualisation techniques for improved perception with wearable low-vision assistive
aids, including prosthetic vision (ie., retinal prostheses), sensory substitution displays, and other wearable computer mediated (augmented) reality displays. The project will be particularly focussed on the use of visual motion (optic flow) in sensory-motor
guidance, and will seek to develop novel structure and motion estimation algorithms  as well as associated visualisation schemes to enhance the perception during motion in low resolution/dynamic range assistive displays.    Research will also involve human
trials, using virtual/augmented reality headsets, and a motion capture system.  

Applicants must be in a position to start the project before March 31st, 2017.

Interested applicants should contact Dr Chris McCarthy (cdmccarthy@swin.edu.au)  along with your CV, and any relevant supporting documentation.  

Closing date:  Friday January 13th, 2017.
