1 PHD POSITION IN STRUCTURE FROM MOTION AND TIME (COMPUTER SCIENCE) AT THE IIT IN COLLABORATION WITH UNIVERSITÀ CA’ FOSCARI di VENEZIA (UniVe, administrative headquarter) - [ PhD ]

Workplace: Venezia, CCHT
Added on: 28/02/2019 - Expires on: 10/04/2019

IIT has established a collaboration with the Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics of Università Ca’ Foscari – Venezia and finances 1 scholarship linked to a PhD position available at the PhD Course in Computer Science, organized by Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia. Research and training activities are jointly conducted at the Center for Cultural Heritage Technology and Università Ca’ Foscari.

The position offered is bound to the following topic:

Structure from Motion and Time

This research theme aims to provide a 3D reconstruction of complex historical urban environments.

This will develop novel computer vision techniques able to handle complex and unique architectures built with a variety of materials as well as utilize a variety of data sources including historical archives. In addition to the Computer Vision advancements, potential Cultural Heritage/Digital Humanities applications are related to:

  • detecting structural changes in the urbanscape through time;
  • modeling the evolution of the urbanscape;
  • detecting environmental variations across time.

Methods to be investigated to this end may include multi-view methods for 3D reconstruction, machine learning approaches with deep architectures, such as point matching and image similarities estimation. This theme will be performed in collaboration with experts from Cultural Heritage/Digital Humanities, Machine Learning and/or Material Sciences.

The recipient of the scholarship will develop the project under the supervision of the Center Coordinator, Arianna Traviglia, and of the scientific Principal Investigator of the Center, in Venice, and at the Department of Environmental Sciences, Informatics and Statistics of the Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia.

The successful candidate will be part of an exciting and international working environment and will work in brand new laboratories equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation.

Excellent communication skills in English, as well as the ability to interact effectively with members of the research team, are mandatory.

In order to apply for these positions, it is mandatory to refer to the procedures administered by the Università Ca’ Foscari. The official call is available at this link: PHD degree | how to apply. The relevant section for this position is labelled under Computer Science.

Please, apply before the deadline: April 10th 2019, 13:00 (Italian time)
