Two, 3-year, post-doctoral positions are available in Bristol’s CamoLab funded by BBSRC grant BB/S00873X/1 “Concealing 3D objects”. The overarching aim is to develop a computational toolkit, and research pipeline, that can determine the best (or worst) camouflage for any object in any environment for any viewer (different species or, indeed, machine vision).

Funded by University of Bristol and Kyoto University, Olivia and László have visited Professor Hiroshi Ashida's vision lab at Kyoto University in Japan. The aim of the visit was to start international collaborations between Camo Lab and Kyoto, with a special interest in the effects of camouflage on a cognitive level. Professor Ashida's group has been investigating the human brain's processing of visual stimuli using fMRI scanners for years, hence we sought their expertise.
