A fully funded doctoral student position in computer vision is available at the Center for Machine Vision Research at the University of Oulu in Finland.
The topics of interest include image representations and deep learning, image-based three-dimensional modelling and/or object detection and segmentation. The specific research topic will be determined based on the strengths and preferences of the student.
An ideal candidate should have a Master's degree in computer science, signal processing, electrical engineering, physics or mathematics. Also those who are expected to finish their Master's degree by the end of 2014 may apply. Previous research experience and publications are beneficial but not necessary. Good programming skills (e.g. Matlab or C++) and fluency in spoken and written English are required. The starting date is negotiable.
The Center for Machine Vision Research (www.cse.oulu.fi/CMV) is a leading research unit in computer vision in Finland and a creative and stimulating research environment. Current members of our personnel are outstanding researchers from various countries. We continuously publish in top journals and conferences of the field (e.g. CVPR, ECCV, ICCV, TPAMI). We have an extensive international collaboration network and the mobility of our researchers to leading research groups abroad, and vice versa, is intense.
