Two PhD student positions at IDIAP and EPFL, Switzerland


The IDIAP Research Institute, associated with the Swiss Federal
Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) seeks qualified
candidates for two PhD student positions. Both positions are
available immediately.

1. PhD student position in computer vision for analysis of cultural
heritage materials.

The doctoral student will investigate principled approaches for visual
analysis of collections of ancient pictorial documents. The project
involves an international collaboration with a team of archeologists.
A range of fundamental problems in computer vision - object matching
and recognition, discovery of recurrent visual patterns, relations
between visual and text information - and domain-specific problems
are open for investigation. The successful candidate will become a
doctoral student at EPFL.

The candidate will combine an excellent background in electrical
engineering, computer science, or applied mathematics, with experience
in computer vision, machine learning, or information retrieval.
Interests in archeology, visual arts, and multidisciplinary work

The work will build on on-going research at IDIAP in the context of
large research initiatives at the Swiss and international level. The
successful candidate will become a doctoral student at EPFL.

The candidate will combine an excellent background in electrical
engineering, computer science, or applied mathematics, with experience
in signal processing, computer vision, machine learning, or ubiquitous
