JOB: Lecturer - Oxford Brookes University - UK


Applications are invited for the post of lecturer to work in computer vision
and machine learning in the Department of Computing at Oxford Brookes. The
post is funded under an Oxford Brookes early career development initiative
with the aim being to foster basic research. As such the position holds a
very light teaching load for the first three years, and would be suitable
for a recent PhD or to someone just about to complete. The candidate would
be expected to produce world leading research, supervise graduate students
and apply for research funding; the pay is around 26-27K.
 
The Computer Vision group (http://cms.brookes.ac.uk/research/visiongroup/)
in the Department of Computing was formed in 2005 by Philip Torr and William
Clocksin, and is led by Philip Torr
(http://cms.brookes.ac.uk/staff/PhilipTorr/). It comprises 8 graduate
students and 4 research fellows. The aim of the group is to engage in state
of the art research into the mathematical theory of computer vision and
artificial intelligence, but to keep the mathematical research relevant to
the needs of society. Our research is focused on Bayesian methods, in
particular the study of the mathematics underlying Markov Random Fields,
combinatorial optimization and Bayesian nets. 

The applications come in many forms, and we are involved with several major
companies and organizations. With Sony we are working on human computer
interaction (via a camera, the "EyeToy") for the Play Stations 2 and 3, with
Sharp we are working on generation of content for 3D displays, with Oxford
Metrics Group we are working on computer understanding of films (e.g. what
is the shape of objects in the scene etc) in order to make better special
effects, we also work on motion capture of humans (and animals) in order to
drive computer generated avatars. We work on medical image analysis and on
surveillance. We also do collaborative work with Microsoft Research, London,
Cambridge and Oxford Universities.

Deadline 12th May.
