Title: Vision R&D in 3D reconstruction and real-time embedded implementationPosted: June 19, 2013
Company/Institution: Jet Propulsion Lab
Location: Pasadena, CA
Department: Computer Vision Group

Description: JPL develops a wide variety of technologies that support unmanned exploration of the solar system, Earth and space science, and related applications on Earth. JPL R&D includes vision systems for robotic manipulation and for autonomous navigation of robotic vehicles for land, sea, air, and space; this encompasses a variety of issues including localization, 3D reconstruction, classification, recognition, and understanding scene dynamics. We are looking to strengthen our team in two areas: research on 3D reconstruction and labeling of non-lambertian scenes and real-time vision algorithm implementation on embedded processors. The research position requires a PhD with a strong track record of relevant research, strong communication skills, and desire to participate in collaborative research and proposal development in a team setting. The embedded vision position requires at least a BS in CS/EE or a related field, extensive experience with implementation and optimization of vision algorithms to exploit computer architectures (SIMD instructions, DSP, GPU, multi-core, etc), experience interfacing and controlling sensors (cameras, lidars), and experience with a diversity of operating systems.

Application Instructions: Reply by email with resume, availability date, and contact information for three references to Larry Matthies, Supervisor, Computer Vision Group, lhm@jpl.nasa.gov.
