Description

We are seeking two experienced full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistants in Computer Vision to join Professor Victor Adrian Prisacariu's and Professor Philip Torr's research groups at the Department of Engineering Science (central Oxford). This is a fixed-term role until 31 August 2022 with funding provided by industry. Both groups are internationally leading research groups that have numerous scientific awards and have close links with some of the top industrial research labs.


This is a research project that aims to link 3D object reconstruction using SfM and/or depth fusion with 3D deep learning, with a strong focus on accuracy.


You will be required to develop and implement novel computer vision and learning algorithms to reconstruct 3D object geometry whilst also contributing documented software to the group library. You will also write reports on your research, and publish these as papers in leading conferences and journals.


You should possess a doctorate, or be near completion of doctorate, in computer vision, machine learning or a relevant subject, together with a strong publication record at principal computer vision conferences (CVPR, ECCV, ICCV and BMVC), with a background 3D geometry (depth fusion/SLAM/object tracking and reconstruction) and/or deep learning.


Informal enquiries may be addressed to victor@robots.ox.ac.uk or philip.torr@eng.ox.ac.uk


You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.


Only applications received before 12.00 midday on the 5 August 2020 can be considered.


The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
