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

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.
