Title: Two Postdoctoral Positions in Computer Vision and Machine Learning (Immediate opening)Posted: November 26, 2013
Company/Institution: Singapore University of Technology and Design
Location: Singapore
Department: Information Systems Technology and Design

Description:

We are currently building up the Vision, Graphics and Computational Design (VGD) Group at the Information Systems Technology and Design (ISTD), the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). SUTD is a brand new university established with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Our group is interested in research related to image, vision, graphics and fabrication. We have strong collaboration with various outstanding institutions including MIT, Zhejiang University (ZJU), Stanford University, University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Princeton University, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), ETH Zurich, Microsoft Research Asia (MSRA), Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).

1) Postdoctoral position in 3D Reconstruction (Immediate opening)

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow who has experience on 3D reconstruction. The successful candidate is expected to develop and apply 3D recontruction algorithms on objects and scences with various scales. Applicants should have experience on multi-view stereo. Prior experience on photometric stereo, shape-from-shading, depth sensor and light field camera will be a plus.

Duration: 2 years and can be extended.

Qualification:
- PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, or related areas.
- Experience in Multi-view stereo
- Strong programming skill in C/C++ and Matlab
- Expertise in OpenGL or Open Inventor is preferable.
- A strong publications record, at least one first author paper in top venues such as CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, NIPS, TPAMI, IJCV, JMLR, SIGGRAPH/SIGGRAPHAsia, TOG, TVCG, Eurographics etc.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to visit HKUST, MIT, MSRA, Princeton, Stanford, UCLA or ZJU for a short period to work with world class researchers and to get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art 3D scanning systems on various scales and 3D printing systems.
Salary will be commensurated with the successful applicants' accomplishments, experience and qualifications. Singapore has a low income tax of around 15% (http://www.iras.gov.sg/irasHome/page04.aspx?id=1190).
