Post-doctoral fellowship in computer and/or human vision at Utrecht University

http://visiontrain.inrialpes.fr/?page=post_proposals
Contact: s.c.pont@phys.uu.nl

The Physics of Man group of the Helmholtz Institute invites applications for
a postdoctoral research position in computer and/or human vision, within the
EU-Marie Curie VISIONTRAIN project.

Opportunities exist to contribute to research into illumination- and
shape-from-shading+3Dtexture. Concrete aims are to compare results of
psychophysics studies with algorithmical analyses (computer vision).

Candidates should have a recent PhD in physics, experimental psychology,
computer science, electrical engineering, or a related field, with
demonstrated research ability relevant to the topics above. The postdoctoral
position is awarded for a one-year period, starting as soon as possible.

The post-doctoral fellow will work within the ecological optics group (prof.
Koenderink, Dr. Pont, Dr. van Doorn and three PhD students) and in
conjunction and in association with the VISIONTRAIN PhD student, Stefan
Karlsson.

For conditions and application procedures see
