Four 3.5-year Research Fellow positions at the ANU (Australian National University) in the areas of computer vision, robotics, or machine learning

The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science, is seeking to appoint four (4) Research Fellows with strong track record in the areas of Computer Vision, and/or Robotics, and/or Machine Learning.

The successful applicants are expected to contribute to a newly-launched 7-year major research program of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision (ACRV). The ACRV is a recently awarded multi-institutional major research grant, funded by the ARC (Australia Research Council). The Centre is aimed to develop the underlying science and technologies that will enable robots to see, to understand their environment using the sense of vision, to perform useful tasks in the complex, unstructured and dynamically changing environments in which we live and work.

There are four partner Australian universities with the ACRV Centre, which are Queensland University of Technology, University of Adelaide, the Australian National University (ANU), and Monash University, in addition to five international participating universities: Oxford University, Imperial College London, INRIA, ETH Zurich and Georgia-Tech.

The four (4) Research Fellow positions at the ANU are available on a full-time fixed-term capacity at Academic Level-B for a period of 3.5 years. These positions offer great career prospects at a top class University along with excellent working conditions such as generous remuneration benefits.

For those unfamiliar with Australia academic ranking system, a fresh new PhD graduate would start at Level-A (postdoctoral fellow), followed by Level-B (research fellow), up to Level-E (professor). Expected starting date for these four positions is in the second half of 2014, or as soon as possible.

The successful applicants are expected to align his/her own research topics with, but not limit to, one (or more) of four main research directions (of the ANU node), i.e. (a) Vision and Action (b) Robust 3D vision (c) Semantic Vision and (d) Optimization and Geometry, as detailed in the Selection Criteria (see:

To be considered for this position, applicants must address all questions in the Selection Criteria, accompanied by a CV, and a list of at least two referees.

Upon success, you will be part of a high performance University that offers great employment benefits and brings foresight to the research and education.
