[visionlist] Postdoctoral Position @ EPFL – Machine Learning for Facial Image Analysis

Job description

Signal Processing Laboratory (LTS5) at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) is
recruiting an outstanding postdoctoral researcher to work on Machine Learning for Facial Image Analysis.Lead
by Prof. Jean-Philippe Thiran, the LTS5 develops leading edge research
in image analysis and computer vision, with a particular emphasis on
facial image analysis, including 3D face reconstruction, facial
expression recognition, lip-reading, eye tracking, etc. in close
collaboration with the Istanbul Technical University (Prof. Hazım Kemal
Ekenel).In the context of several industrial collaborations and
of a large H2020 EU project dedicated to Advanced Driver Assistance
Systems (Project ADAS&ME – http://ift.tt/2lXKs2d),
we have an open position for a postdoctoral research specialized in
machine learning and facial expression recognition. Research will be
primarily oriented towards developing innovative machine learning
methods for personalized facial expression recognition.


The position is for at least 2 years (1 year contract,
renewable). EPFL offers attractive salaries, based on experience and
excellence criteria

Post-doc fellows of exceptional caliber may also be granted
responsibility for co-supervising a PhD student on a subject related to
their research

Starting date is anytime between April 1 and October 1, 2017, with preference for an early start

How to apply:

Full applications and informal inquiries should be sent to Prof. Jean-Philippe Thiran by email: jean-philippe.thiran@epfl.ch

Full applications must be in the form of a single pdf file including:
a motivation letter describing your research interests and your match
to the advertised position, your CV and publication list, and names and
email address of 3 references. Screening of candidates will start in
March 2017.

Desired skills and experience

will have an outstanding profile and hold, or be about to finish, a PhD
in electrical engineering, applied mathematics, computer science or a
related area

Strong competences in image processing and machine learning
are required, including deep learning, model adaptation, face
reconstruction and analysis

Good programming skills (C++ or equivalent) are required
