I have several openings for Post-Doctoral Fellows, PhD and MSc students,
and Research Engineers.
New projects in a variety of areas will be commencing in Spring 2010.
The areas are generally Computer Vision
and Robotics, and specifically, visual object recognition, visual
attention, active vision, visually-guided navigation
for mobile robots, companion robots, assistive technology. Most
activities involve large international research teams.
Typically, formal training and degrees in Computer Science or
Engineering are expected.
Prospective graduate students should apply directly to the Department of
Computer Science & Engineering
following the instructions on the departmental web pages
Also send me a note informing me of your application and include my name
as potential supervisor in the application package.
All others apply directly to me via email providing a full CV, names and
email addresses of three referees, and
samples of published papers.
For all applicants, I also wish to see a one-page description of why you

space; salaries will be highly competitive
and depend on qualifications and experience.
Click on my name below to see descriptions of existing projects and
overall lab activities.
My lab is highly interdisciplinary and provides a rich environment for
research in computer vision, biologically inspired vision systems,
human vision, and mobile robotics.
A steady flow of international visitors and speakers as well as
industrial collaborations give trainees enormous opportunities.
As part of the Centre for Vision Research, my lab contributes to CVR's
large critical mass of vision researchers from all disciplines,
comprised of 27 faculty and over 150 other adjunct, post-doctoral,
research scientists, engineers and graduate students.
York University is Canada's 3rd largest; CVR is Canada's largest vision
centre and has been ranked in the top 6 in the world in
interdisciplinary vision research.
Normal admission, hiring and contractual policies for York University
apply for all of these positions.
Please contact me if you wish further information.
