Ph.D./Post-doc position, Underwater Vision and Imaging Lab, University of Miami


Underwater Vision and Imaging Lab at the Electrical and Computer Engineering is 
seeking 2 qualified Ph.D. students and possibly one post-doc fellow. The Ph.D. 
students are being recruited for Fall'07, but would be able to start in 
summer'07. The post-doc appointment is to be made for a project, with 
expected start date of summer'07. Well-qualified candidates could be 
considered for an earlier start date.

The projects deal with application of motion and stereo vision and 3-D 
reconstruction techniques to optical, acoustic and integrated optical and 
acoustic video imaging systems, targeted for underwater target reconstruction 
systems. Students with extended experience in motion and stereo are highly 
sought. Ph.D. assistantship package includes full tuition plus 12-month stipend 
at 25-1675 per month based on qualification. Post-doc salaries would be 
negotiated based on candidate background. We also welcome candidates with a 
Ph.D. degree who are preparing for a faculty position in the near future, thus 
seeking teaching experience opportunity in relevant ECE areas (including but 
not limited to image processing and computer vision).

Appropriate documents should be sent electronically to Professor Shahriar 
Negahdaripour, including an updated vitae that lists all publications. A short 
biography that describes relevant previous projects is highly desirable. 
Ph.D. applicants should include a copy of their BS and MS transcripts, 
which can be an unofficial copy at this point for screening.
