Job: C++ Developer in Image Processing, University of Linz


The Dept. of Knowledge-Based Mathematical Systems at the Johannes
Kepler University of Linz, Austria, is offering a permanent full-time
position for an

                    Experienced C++ Developer

We are an inter-disciplinary team of twelve researchers, located at
Softwarepark Hagenberg, working in the fields of

  - audio and image processing
  - machine learning, and
  - fuzzy control systems.

Typically, our projects involve both basic academic research and
utilisation in an industrial environment. Since we continue to expand
our activities,

we are looking for a C++ developer with several years of working
experience. Ideally, you are experienced in the design and development
of large software systems, you already implemented time-critical,
multi-threading applications, and you work with libraries such as STL,
Boost, and wxWidgets on a day-by-day basis. Additionally, you have
gained profound knowledge in either signal and image processing,
machine learning, or industrial automation.

We provide hard research problems as well as tough programming
challenges, a high degree of freedom and self-responsibility, and
the stimulating exchange of an international research team.

We particularly encourage women to apply for this position.
Candidates must already be authorized to work in the EU.

If you are interested, need further information, or want to appoint
an interview, please contact DI Roland Richter, +43/7236/3343 430,
or write to until 28 February 2007.
