[visionlist] research position available on multi-camera systems

*************************************Apologize for multiple postings *************************************

We are urgently seeking candidates for a 1 year position (renewable) as a research associate on the topic “3D Computer Vision methods for multi-camera systems” at DIBRIS – Department of Informatics Bioengineering Robotics and Systems Engineering, Università degli Studi di Genova – Italy

Summary: The goal of the research is the design of methods for  (1) building and calibrating multi-camera systems including both traditional and depth sensors, (2) acquiring 3D information in real-time from the above mentioned systems.The designed methods will be applied to different contexts, with particular reference to industrial systems for object scanning,  and augmented reality environments in which the user can interact with virtual objects. The research activity will cover theory, algorithms and applications, and will be carried out in a stimulating multi-disciplinary context. The research fellow will be partially involved in the EU FP7 SAFEPOST research project.

Candidates must have an excellent academic record and own a Master (II level) Degree in one of the following topics (or related fields): Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Robotics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics. Although not strictly necessary, a background in computer vision is an asset. The research fellowship might open possibilities for a PhD position starting from autumn 2015.
