2 Year Postdoctoral Position available from mid 2011

Australian Centre for Visual Technologies
University of Adelaide
South Australia

Added Depth: Automated high level image interpretation

Research areas: Computer Vision, Machine Learning

The successful applicant will join an established and successful team, lead by Prof Anton van den Hengel, Dr Anthony Dick, Prof Philip Torr and Prof Simon Lucey, working on learning priors from large image sets which might aid the process of automated image interpretation. The position is initially for 2 years and will be available from mid 2011.

Project background: Automated image interpretation has been one of the landmark goals of Artificial Intelligence since its inception.  The availability of enormous volumes of imagery and related meta-data on the Internet and elsewhere provides a valuable resource for automated image interpretation which has not yet been fully exploited.  By extending current 2D image interpretation methods on the basis of priors learned through analysis of this image information we aim to develop technologies capable of interpreting the world through imagery.
This is a new position in an expanding international group of researchers. Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant discipline, with a strong background in computer vision, in particular image-based modelling, machine learning or probabilistic graphical models.  Strong coding and mathematical skills are also required. The successful applicant will work as part of a team of researchers within the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies on developing new approaches to image interpretation. International travel will be funded as part of the package.

Salary: From $78,254 to $89,596 (Level B, Steps 2 – 6)(Australian Dollars) negotiable.

Closing Date: Friday May 6, 2011. Further positions may become available, so applications may be accepted after this date for those positions.

Informal enquiries and applications may be addressed to:
Prof. A van den Hengel
