Computer Vision PhD scholarship at Pompeu Fabra University


Computer Vision PhD scholarship: Object recognition in video sequences
Image Processing Grup, Pompeu Fabra University,
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain

The Image Processing Group 
(http://www.iua.upf.es/recerca/image_processing/im_proc_c.htm) at the 
Pompeu Fabra University, lead by Prof. Vicent Caselles 
(http://www.iua.upf.es/~vcaselles/) is offering a PhD position within 
the RACINE project (http://www.ipracine.org/objectives/objectives.html), 
which constitutes an excellent opportunity for original research both on 
applied and scientific computing.

The position is initially granted for one and a half year, with the 
possibility of extending up to three or four years. This extension will 
depend on the admission at the PhD program of the Pompeu Fabra 
University (see http://www.upf.edu/dtecn/english/phd/index.htm for more 
information). Salary will be approximately 13.300  for 2007.

The PhD work will be related to the implementation of object recognition 
algorithms on video sequences within the application field of multimedia 
post-production systems, which the Image Processing Group is actively 
empowering. Algorithms will be based on the development of hybrid 
systems that take into consideration geometry based image processing 
together with computational intelligence methodologies, i.e. neural 
networks, fuzzy computing and evolutionary computation. This work will 
be supervised by Prof. V. Caselles and Dr. A. Soria-Frisch.

Applicants are expected to have a good degree in Computer Science, 
Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, Physics or any relevant discipline, 
and proficient programming experience (C/C++/Matlab or Python).

Candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Aureli Soria-Frisch 
(mailto:aureli.soria (at) upf.edu) by sending a motivation letter and a CV.

Closing Date: January 31st, 2007 (though position will remain open till 
a suitable candidate is found).
