Postdoc positions at INRIA Lear-Vista-Willow


POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE (12-24 months)
***********************************************

MODELING AND RECOGNITION OF REALISTIC HUMAN ACTIONS IN VIDEO

We search one or more postdoctoral candidates to work within a joint
INRIA-Microsoft (Cambridge) project involving three INRIA teams:

INRIA Grenoble  -- LEAR project http://lear.inrialpes.fr
INRIA Rennes    -- VISTA project 
http://www.irisa.fr/vista/Vista.english.html
ENS/INRIA Paris -- WILLOW project http://www.di.ens.fr/willow

The objective of the project is to understand actions and interactions
in unconstrained video depicting everyday human activities such as in
sitcoms, feature films, or news segments.

Our three teams together have leading expertise and recent
state-of-the-art results in visual recognition of objects, scenes and
human actions. We will provide candidates with a stimulating working
environment in the international and well-established research teams.
The precise location of the posts (Grenoble/Paris/Rennes) will be
decided at a later stage and will possibly take into account the
personal preferences of candidates. The research will be carried out
with Ivan Laptev, Patrick Perez, Jean Ponce, Cordelia Schmid and
Andrew Zisserman.

We seek strong and motivated candidates with

   * PhD in Computer Vision or Machine Learning
   * A solid background in programming with C/C++ and/or Matlab.
   * Experience in one or several following areas
      - visual recognition methods
      - speech/sound processing
      - text mining

The application deadline is *June 1, 2008*
