Company/Institution: Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT)
Location: Italy
Department: PAVIS (Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision)

Description: The PAVIS department at Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT (www.iit.it) is looking for highly qualified researchers in the field of Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, Image Analysis and Machine Learning. The main mission of PAVIS is to design and develop innovative video surveillance systems, characterized by the use of highly-functional smart sensors and advanced video analytics features. PAVIS has also an active role in supporting the research facilities in IIT providing solutions to life-scientists in Neuroscience, Drug Discovery and Development and Nanophysics. To this end, the group is involved in activities concerning computer vision and pattern recognition, machine learning, multimodal data analysis and sensor fusion, sensors networks, and embedded computer vision systems. The lab will pursue this goal by working collaboratively and in cooperation with external private and public partners. This call aims at consolidating PAVIS expertise in the following research areas: • low-level video analytics: signal/image processing, tagging and tracking (individuals, groups, crowd, etc.); • high-level video analytics: behaviour analysis, activity recognition, reasoning paradigms, graphical models; • multi-modal sensor fusion for object detection, localisation and cooperative 3D reconstruction in heterogeneous sensors networks. Applicants' research experience and qualification on computer vision and pattern recognition/machine learning are clearly a must, and evidence of top quality research on the above specified areas in the form of published papers in top conferences/journals and/or patents are mandatory. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computer vision, machine learning, signal processing, image analysis or related areas and research experience at postdoctoral level of at least two years.
