[CLOSED] Postdoctoral researcher position for MOBIDEM project

Topic : Robust face verification under spoofing attacks
on mobile platforms

Status : CLOSED


The L3i lab of the University of La Rochelle (France) is looking for a talented young researcher to join a team working on mobile authentication using identity documents capture and video interaction. You will work closely with approx. 8 persons (professors, associate professors, software engineers, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students) in 2 labs and 2 companies to design, prototype, evaluate and disseminate a new solution for the robust distant authentication of individuals using identity document scans and an interactive video session.


As part of the MOBIDEM project (“Mobile Identity for the Masses”), which aims at lowering the barrier for the acquisition of digital certificates for mobile-signature, the L3i is in charge of conceiving and developing a simple yet secure remote enrollment process. The enrollment is the preliminary stage of the mobile-signature process when individuals authenticate themselves and receive on their mobile devices digital credentials linked to their real identity, that will be later used to sign digital documents. This project involves 3 industrials and 2 academic labs, and aims at disrupting the digital trust market. The MOBIDEM project is funded by the French government.

Working environment

The L3i lab (“Image Interaction Informatics”) is the ICT research component of the University of La Rochelle, France. Located on the seaside in one of the most touristic cities in France, the L3i lab has grown a solid experience in collaborative research projects with many academics labs and industrial partners. The L3i lab has a huge team of researchers (postdocs, software engineers, professors), with solid experience on R&D projects in the domain of computer vision. The L3i lab owns several state-of-the-art document scanners and sophisticated equipment for conducting high quality research. Composed of a hundred staff members, we value scientific excellence, initiative, and cooperation.
