JOB: Lecturer - Oxford Brookes University
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.
