Funded PhD Studentships

The director of the EIS@Essex Lab, Prof Klaus McDonald-Maier, is one of the supervisors in the EPSRC sponsored IGGI Centre for Doctoral Training http://www.iggi.org.uk in the area of embedded systems (which covers games hardware/software systems, sensors and interfacing technologies), novel hardware architectures for games and measuring emotional and physiological signals.

We are currently seeking suitable candidates in these areas under the embodied interaction theme of the IGGI Centre:

Embodied interaction

This theme covers whole body interaction and involves the following technologies:

  • Brain-computer interaction
  • Other physiological biosignal interfaces
  • Motion capture systems
  • New products like the Leap Motion
  • Consumer devices like Microsoft Kinect
  • Embedded sensors on mobile technologies (e.g. smartphone accelerometers)
