We are looking for a skilled and motivated Research Scientist with expertise in eye tracking, perception and cognitive science. Candidates will be expected to advance algorithms for tracking the 3D fixation and for pupillometric measures and to design studies to evaluate how those signals can be used to infer intent and cognitive states. Experience with a broad range of eye tracking systems and the ability to collaborate with researchers focusing on multisensory perceptual-motor control, goal inference and cognitive state (emotion, cognitive effort). More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities.
* Implement and test state-of-the-art eye tracking algorithms and develop novel methods to improve saccadic detection for 3D eye tracking and pupillometry
Devise and execute research plans to investigate ways to use eye tracking and pupillometry to infer user intent and cognitive state
Work with HCI researchers to determine how eye tracking can be combined with other inputs (e.g. pointing) to infer user intent
Work collaboratively with other cognitive scientist and help develop novel applications for eye tracking in AR interaction systems
Mentor MS/PhD interns and collaborate with external academic groups to advance our research goals
Publish research results in top-tier journals and at leading international conferences
* PhD degree or completing a postdoc assignment in the field of applied mathematics, mechanical engineering, computer science, cognitive science, engineering psychology, or related areas
2+ years experience with scientific programming languages such as MATLAB, Python, Mathematica, or similar
Experience in virtual reality, psychophysics, engineering psychology, or computational modeling
Experience with interdisciplinary research that spans both perceptual research and engineering
Must obtain work authorization in country of employment at the time of hire, and maintain ongoing work authorization during employment
* 2+ years experience in applying perceptual knowledge to solve engineering problems
Interpersonal skills including cross-group and cross-culture collaboration
Communication and personal management skills
1+ years of experience in signal processing
1+ years of experience in control theory
Proven track record of achieving results, including first-authored journal publications
