Post-doctoral Position in Computer Vision at EPFL
EPFL's Computer Vision Laboratory (http://cvlab.epfl.ch/) has an opening for a post-doctoral fellow in the field of Computer Vision and Human Body Modeling. The position is initially offered for 12 months. Description: The work will be carried out within the context of the Marie Curie Research Training Network (http://visiontrain.inrialpes.fr/) , whose goal is to addresses the problem of understanding vision from both computational and cognitive points of view. EPFL's main role within this project relates to human body modeling from video sequences. Within this context, the successful candidate will be able to work on a subject of his/her own choice. Position: 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 range EUR 40000 to 45000 per year, the precise amount to be determined by EPFL's department of human resources. Because, the project is funded under the Marie Curie rules, some nationality restrictions apply. See http://visiontrain.inrialpes.fr/?page=post_proposals for details. Education: Applicants are expected to have finished, or be about to finish their Ph.D. degrees, to have strong mathematical background, and to have a track record of publications in top computer vision conferences and journals. Strong programming skills (C or C++) are a plus. French language skills are not required, English is mandatory. Application: Applications must be sent by email to Prof. P. Fua (firstname.lastname@example.org). They must contain a statement of interest, a CV, a list of publications, and the names of three references.
