EPFL's Computer Vision Laboratory has several openings for post-doctoral fellows in the field of Computer Vision. The positions is initially offered for 12 months and can be extended. In particular, we are looking for people interested in:
- Augmented Reality. We are about to start an EU project that focuses on developing Augmented Reality techniques for games on mobile devices. It will build on our earlier work on binary descriptors.
- Video-based people tracking. We are about to start a project involving tracking multiple players in team sports, with a view to deployment in major sports venues in 2012.
- Modeling neurons from microscopy images. Since microscopes now routinely produce high-resolution imagery in such large quantities that the need for automated processing and interpretation is becoming critical, we are working on approaches to providing it.
The Computer Vision laboratory offers a creative international environment, a possibility to conduct competitive research on a global scale and involvement in teaching. Within the project, there will be ample opportunities to cooperate with some of the best groups in Europe and elsewhere.
EPFL is located next to Lake Geneva in a beautiful setting 60 kilometers away from the city of Geneva. Salaries are in the order of CHF 80000 per year, the precise amount to be determined by EPFL's department of human resources.
Applicants are expected to have finished, or be about to finish their Ph.D. degrees, to have a strong background in Computer Science, and to have a track record of publications in top conferences and journals. Strong programming skills (C or C++) are a plus. French language skills are not required, English is mandatory.
