Engineering/ Math/ Computer Science
Computer Science, Data Science
The applicant will join an ongoing project consisting of setting up 3D tracking of marmoset monkeys based on labels obtained from a multi-camera set-up. DeepLabCut, a deep neural network based tool for markerless pose estimation, has been used to obtain labels in 2D. The applicant's role in the project will be to assist with implementing the next step where Anipose, which builds on DeepLabCut, will be used for 3D triangulation. The applicant will not be directly handling animals.
Desired Experience
Proficient in Python and/or MATLAB and some familiarity with machine vision and deep neural networks (not necessary but would be helpful)
