The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) invites applications for a 
postdoctoral research position in JPL's Computer Vision Group.

Opportunities exist to contribute to research in a variety of areas, 
including vision for autonomous navigation of unmanned ground and air 
vehicles on Earth and in space, people recognition/activity analysis, 
and overhead video reconnaissance. Related research is also possible 
on exploiting learning in computer vision and on FPGA-based 
implementation of vision algorithms.

Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in computer science, electrical 
engineering, or a related field, with demonstrated research ability 
relevant to the topics above. The appointment is contingent upon 
evidence of completion of a Ph.D. The annual starting salary for a 
new Ph.D. is US$52,000 and can vary somewhat according to the 
applicant's qualifications. Postdoctoral scholars positions are 
awarded for a one-year period. Appointments may be renewed in 
one-year increments for a maximum addition of two years.

Please respond with a letter describing your research interests, a 
curriculum vitae, and a list of three references (with telephone 
numbers and postal and e-mail addresses) to:
