Job: Research Scientist - National ICT (NICTA, Australia)

Dear all,

If you are a current RA whose funding will run out shortly, or a PhD 
student who will be finishing soon, I would like to point your attention 
to a 3-year funding opportunity at post-doctoral/entry level within 
NICTA at the Australian National University here in Australia.


Antonio Robles-Kelly

National ICT Australia (NICTA) is Australias ICT Research Centre of 
Excellence. NICTA brings together world-class researchers and 
professional staff to enhance their skills and build a culture of 
entrepreneurship and achievement in use-inspired research. This will 
build Australia's ICT capacity into the future.

An opportunity exists to join the Spectral Imaging and Source Mapping 
project at NICTA, within the ViSTA program, as a Researcher Level 3. The 
project is aimed at researching and utilising 3D modelling, object 
recognition and visualisation techniques from spectral cameras or heat 
detected by frontier sensing technologies. The successful applicant will 
work primarily on the development of a framework for multi-camera 
information fusion which can be applied to the built environment and 
human activities within such environments that relate to health, safety 
and security. The project will develop methods for scene modelling, 
subject tracking and coordinating multiple cameras in wide area coverage 
settings. These methods are expected to work primarily with infrared and 
near-infrared cameras. Nonetheless, the algorithms developed here will 
aim to be as general as possible and are expected to be real-time, 
robust and portable to embedded systems.

 The development of a computation framework for multicamera information 
fusion and pattern recognition across a wide area coverage setting.
 The development of a set of computational methods for feature 
selection, statistical pattern recognition and recognition for spectral 
 To collaborate with our partners to ensure that the tools and 
techniques mentioned above are to an industry standard that would allow 
the export of these methods to relevant parties within the industry.
 Form research synergies with researchers in other NICTA programs, 
within ViSTA and SISM.
 Contribute to the teaching of advanced courses.
 Contribute to NICTAs international image by participating in 
International projects, presentations at conferences, international 
collaborative projects and attracting high quality international research.
 Contribute to research interaction with industry with a view to 
generate economic impact.
 Participate in supervision and review of PhD students.
 Contribute to the corporate development of NICTA through assisting in 
the induction, training and mentoring of staff.
 Maintain high ethical and performance standards.

 PhD qualification and competency in C++.
 A close fit to the research activities of SISM, with a background in 
one or more of the following areas: photogrametry, 3D machine vision, 
hyperspectral imaging and pattern recognition.
 University graduate and/or some postdoctoral experience in a 
university and/or commercial research laboratory.
 High quality publication(s)/thesis and PhD research.
 Evidence of collaborative work and good quality research and potential 
to develop individual research.
 Research of International standards as evidenced by journals, systems 
built and reference letters.
 Commitment to participation in the supervision and teaching of 
graduate students at PhD and honours level.
 Ability to act as a team member.
 Good programming and communication skills, oral and written.
 An understanding of equal opportunity principles and policies and a 
commitment to their application in a R & D context.
