Postdoc Fellowship at Laboratoire d'Oceanographie de Villefranche

http://www.obs-vlfr.fr/LOV/ZooPart/ZooScan/article.php3?id_article=80

Post-doctoral fellowship 
 

Dead-line : April 30 !!!

 

A post-doctoral fellowship is available at the Laboratoire Ocanologique de Villefranche sur mer (LOV), France (http://www.obs-vlfr.fr/)in the field of image analysis and recognition. The position is initially offered for 12 months, with the possibility of renewal for an additional 12.

 

Description

 

Modifications in community structure of plankton species are good indicators of the impact of climatic change on aquatic ecosystems. Several instruments based on plankton imaging techniques were built by our team. 

There is a need for classification systems capable of handling images from a variety of sensors and allowing rapid assessment of the functional groups of plankton (see www.zooscan.com). We would like to reinforce our competences in the treatment of images sensu stricto and develop feature extraction tools and algorithms for recognition and classification of the objects.

 

 

Position

 

The LOV is well known in the oceanographic research, offers a creative international environment and a possibility to conduct competitive research. Within the project, there are opportunities to cooperate with national and international research groups and industrial partners. The image treatment and objects classification is an emerging field in marine biology. Skills of the candidate are wished in following domains: 

-application of neural network and classifiers construction; 

-development of recognition algorithms; 

-development of algorithms for extraction of objects descriptive attributes; 

-development of neural network applications for classification. 

  
The Salary is in the range of 30 000 Euro per year.

 

Education

 

The candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree with high performance in a field

related to image analysis and recognition. Programming skills are necessary (C or C++). Knowledge in Matlab is a plus.

S/he should have a track record in conducting competitive scientific research. Maturity, self-motivation, and the ability to work both independently and as a team player in local and international research teams are expected. French language skills are not required, English is mandatory.

 

Application must contain a statement of interest, a CV, a list of publications, and the names of two references.

  

Details concerning the application are at the following address:
