From Computer Vision at Western
A one year post-doctoral position (with the possibility of extension) is available at the computer science department, University of Western Ontario, Canada, under the supervision of Yuri Boykov and Olga Veksler. Our computer vision laboratory is funded by NSERC, CFI, ERA, NIH grants. We conduct research in several areas of computer vision, including: 2D/3D segmentation, 3D reconstruction, and combinatorial optimization algorithms for computer vision/medical image processing. We provide a friendly and relaxed environment, and at the same time have a unique expertise in graph-cuts based optimization for computer vision.
Applicants are expected to have finished, or about to finish their Ph.D. degrees, have strong mathematical background, especially in the area of combinatorial optimization, have a track record of publications in top computer vision conferences, and have strong programming skills. Possible projects include: multi-view reconstruction, motion segmentation, 2D/3D segmentation, vision for graphics, combinatorial optimization. A suitable project will be chosen depending on the interests of the candidate.
The University of Western Ontario is located on 155 hectares of land along the banks of the Thames River in London , Ontario - a thriving city of 432,451 people, 200 kilometres west of Toronto.
