Research Fellow in Cognitive Vision, LEEDS UNIVERSITY


Contact: a.g.cohn@leeds.ac.uk

Research Fellow in Cognitive Vision(Fixed term) -University of Leeds, School of Computing


We are seeking a researcher to work on a DARPA funded project, VIGIL (Visual Intelligence Grounded 
in Learning) which aims to build a system to meet the Mind's Eye Programme goals of a smart camera 
with sufficient visual intelligence that it can report on activity in an area of observation. The 
focus of Mind's Eye is to add the perceptual and cognitive underpinnings for recognizing and 
reasoning about the verbs in those scenes, enabling generation of a more complete narrative of 
actions in the visual experience.  VIGIL is led by SRI with the University of Maryland as the 
other partner. Leeds focuses the representation of events and verbs in logic based formalisms, 
and relational learning of verb semantics.

The post is available immediately for a fixed term of up until 12/8/2012 (depending on start date 
and salary point), but with the possibility of extension subject to project funding renewal.

Grade 7 (29,853 - 35,646 p.a.)  Salary offered is dependent upon qualifications and relevant 
research experience.

See tinyurl.com/vigil-job for further details and the application procedure.

Informal enquiries to Prof. Tony Cohn (tel +44 (0)113 3435482, email a.g.cohn@leeds.ac.uk.
