About the Project

FACER2VM: Face matching for automatic identity retrieval, recognition, verification and management

A fully-funded PhD Studentship is available for a UK or EU student to join the flagship FACER2VM project funded by EPSRC. The goal of FACER2VM research is to develop technologies for unconstrained face recognition. FACER2VM is a collaborative multidisciplinary project between the Universities of Surrey, Imperial College London and the University of Sterling. The successful candidate will develop automatic techniques for recognizing individuals in video based on face and soft biometrics. Although the PhD researcher will be based at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, University of Surrey, research will be conducted within the FACER2VM wide project team providing opportunities for collaboration and extended secondment to other FACER2VM partners. Further information about the FACER2VM research project is available at
