The Chair of Geoinformation Engineering at ETH Zürich is looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate, starting at the earliest possible date.
PhD position – Gaze-Based Interaction with Urban Environments
The main objective of the project Location-Aware Mobile Eye Tracking for Tourist Assistance is the investigation of novel gaze-based interaction methods for pedestrians in urban environments, with a focus on a tourist scenario. The project envisions mobile assistance systems that trigger information services based on a user’s gaze on 3D-objects in a real-world urban environment.
The ideal candidate must have an excellent degree (M.Sc., M.Eng. or equivalent) in Computer Science, Geomatics or related fields, as well as a strong research interest in human-computer interaction. Knowledge of methods in machine learning, inferential statistics, as well as strong programming skills (e.g., Java or C++) are required. Background or experience in eye tracking, computer vision, virtual environments, geographic information science, or related topics is a significant plus. The candidate must have excellent communication skills in English (oral and writing), be team-oriented and willing to work in an international environment.
We look forward to receiving your online application (https://apply.refline.ch/
The PhD project will be associated with the GeoGazeLab (http://www.gegogaze.org/) and supervised by Prof. Dr. Martin Raubal (Chair of Geoinformation Engineering). The PhD position will be fully funded, where part of the funding is part of an ETH Zurich Research Grant. For further information about the position, please contact Dr. Peter Kiefer by firstname.lastname@example.org (no applications).
