The Visual Geometry and Modelling (VGM) Research Line at IIT invites qualified applicants to submit their CV’s for a Postdoc position in Genoa under the supervision of Dr. Alessio Del Bue.
The VGM mission is to provide computational tools for the large-scale understanding of data from the nano up to the macro scale level. With a privileged focus on image and video data, the main lab goal is to research and apply methods to boost the advances of life scientists and engineers in untangling and modelling the (big) data as provided by modern sensors (e.g. high-resolution cameras, time-lapse microscopy, 3D scanners).
The scientific core of the Line is related to the research fields of Computer Vision, Signal Processing and Machine Learning with the primary goal to provide algorithms for:
Expertise in these research fields is applied to several practical and challenging problems in the industry with ongoing collaboration with world-leading companies in machine vision, automation, energy, avionics, photonics and fashion industries.
We are opening a postdoc position to work on 3D scene understanding with topics related to recent lab achievements in structure from motion (Magerand & Del Bue, ICCV2017 oral), object scene 3D reconstruction (Crocco et al., CVPR 2016), and semantic object 3D localization (Rubino et al., PAMI 2017). As this previous work mainly deal with static scenes, the VGM lab will push forward these activities developing computational methods for geometric and semantic understanding in dynamic and non-rigid environments. The key aspect of the research carried at VGM will focus on the fusion of state of the art deep architectures with 3D reasoning from multi-view images or RGBD data.
Proven scientific track record on major computer vision conferences/journals (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, TPAMI, IJCV, etc.) is also a relevant criteria for the selection. The candidate will be also involved in Ph.D. students supervision and will collaborate in grant proposal writing. Strong programming skills is a requirement and experience on deep learning is considered a plus.
At the time of the application eligible candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in Computer Vision, Engineering, Robotics or related fields. The successful candidate will be offered a competitive salary commensurate to qualifications and experience.
The call will remain open until the position is filled but a first deadline for evaluation of candidates will be July 16th, 2018
