Title: Postdoc position in IIT-PAVIS on Automatic Visual InspectionPosted: April 22, 2014
Company/Institution: Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT)
Location: Italy - Genova
Department: PAVIS

Description: B.C: 69320 The PAVIS department at Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia - IIT ( is looking for highly qualified researchers in the field of Computer Vision. 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. 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 research area of automatic visual inspection in the context of highly efficient industrial applications. The research theme is related to the creation of methods able to detect photometric aberrations and damages such as scratches and stains from simple images. This implies the development of novel algorithms for object detection, classification and quality control that discriminate explicitly the photometric attributes of each object part. Note that this system will be provided as an assistive software tool but with a broad applicability in any industrial scenarios. This project will be in collaboration with a major industrial partner. The postdoctoral position is up to 2 years starting as soon as possible. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in computer vision, machine learning, signal processing, image analysis or related areas. Evidence of top quality research on the above areas in the form of published papers is definitely required. Knowledge of C, C++ programming languages with a proved experience, especially in an industrial context, is definitely a plus. The salary will be commensurate to qualification and experience and in line to that of the research institutes in the rest of Europe. This call will be open and applications will be reviewed until the position is filled . We will contact the applicants for the follow-on of the procedure.
