Post-doctoral position
Carnegie Mellon University, Robotics Institute

The  3D Vision and Intelligent Systems (3DVis) group is looking for 
highly motivated candidates in the areas of computer vision and machine 
learning, with an emphasis on object modeling and recognition using 
visual imagery and 3D sensors.

Candidates should have experience in image-based or 3D computer vision, 
good mathematical foundations, and proven object-oriented programming 
skills. Our algorithms are primarily prototyped using matlab and C++ in 
a Linux development environment. Experience with these languages and 
Unix-based systems would be beneficial. Knowledge of OpenGL or 3D 
programming libraries built on top of OpenGL is also a plus.

We are actively engaged in several projects related to scene 
understanding, object recognition, and perception for autonomous 
vehicles.  A successful candidate will work with graduate students, 
faculty, and other researchers to conduct basic and applied research on 
these topics. The research will involve developing vision algorithms for 
recognition and modeling, prototyping these algorithms on robotic 
platforms, and evaluating the performance of the resulting systems.

See our group's web site for details about our research projects: 

Candidates must have an appropriate visa to allow working in the United 
States during the period specified.

Duration: 12 months
Availability: Immediate
Location: Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Applications: Please email your CV and list of references to Daniel 
Huber (dhuber at cs.cmu.edu).
