Post-doctoral fellowship in computer and/or human vision at Utrecht University

Post-doctoral fellowship at Utrecht University

The Physics of Man group of the Helmholtz Institute invites applications for
a postdoctoral research position in computer and/or human vision, within the
EU-Marie Curie VISIONTRAIN project.

Opportunities exist to contribute to research into material (reflectance and
roughness texture), shape and light field estimates from object appearance
(e.g. see www.phys.uu.nl/~pont ). Concrete aims are to compare results of
psychophysics studies with algorithmical analyses (computer vision,
ecological optics). The postdoc may contribute to this general goal via
empirical and/or theoretical, psychophysical and/or physico-mathematical
studies.

Candidates should have a recent PhD in physics, experimental psychology,
computer science, electrical engineering, or a related field, with
demonstrated research ability relevant to the topics above. The postdoctoral
position is awarded for a one-year period with possible extensions to two
years, starting as soon as possible.

The post-doctoral fellow will work within the ecological optics group (prof.
Koenderink, Dr. Pont, Dr. van Doorn and two PhD students) and in conjunction
and in association with the VISIONTRAIN PhD student, Stefan Karlsson.

For conditions and application procedures see

curriculum vitae, and a list of three references (with telephone numbers and
postal and e-mail addresses) no later than August 26, 2007, to:
