PhD position – Gaze-Based Interaction with Urban Environments

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, partially funded through an ETH Zurich Research Grant, 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, including a letter of motivation, CV, university score records, contact details of at least two academic referees until September 30, 2017. Selection will start immediately, so early submissions are encouraged. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered. Should you run into difficulties when submitting your application please send an email to recruitingsupport@ethz.ch for advice.

The PhD Project will be associated with the GeoGazeLab www.gegogaze.org and supervised by Prof. Dr. Martin Raubal (Chair of Geoinformation Engineering). For further information about the position, please contact Dr. Peter Kiefer by email pekiefer@ethz.ch (no applications).
