Title: PhD student position in multimodal remote sensing and structured learningPosted: March 11, 2015
Company/Institution: University of Zurich
Location: Zurich, Switzerland
Department: Dept. of Geography

Description: The Multi Modal Remote Sensing unit of the Department of Geography is looking for a PhD student within the project Multimodal Learning for Remote Sensing Information Fusion. The aim of the project is to develop and promote remote sensing data processing strategies based on multiple data sources. The student will work at the interface between remote sensing, computer vision and machine learning. The aim of the thesis is twofold: first, a classification system (semantic segmentation) based on several data modalities will be developed. Such model will encode prior knowledge about the geographical structure of the city. Second, learning under missing data modalities will be considered, to make the model robust to scenarios related to scarce and uncertain data availability.

Application Instructions: Please follow the instructions on the call available on http://www.geo.uzh.ch/en/units/multimodal-remote-sensing/open-positions . It consists in sending your application (including position reference MMRS-2015-01) as one single PDF file (motivation letter, complete CV, and names of 2 references) to Sandra.Altorfer@geo.uzh.ch, no later than April 1, 2015. All complete applications will be given full consideration.
