The Electronics and Computer Science Laboratory of ENSTA-ParisTech
(http://www.ensta.fr), carrying out academic and industrial research in
Robotics and Vision, offers an Engineer / Post-Doctoral position to
develop, characterize and optimize Vision applications on off-the-shelf
parallel computing platform.
Instances of such platform range from GPU (e.g. NVIDIA Fermi) to low
power multimedia circuit embedded in cell phones (e.g. TI OMAP). They
use dedicated development environments and operating systems, that will
need specific learning efforts, possibly including some hardware aspects.
Applications will be related to mobile robotics or video surveillance.
More specifically, object characterization and recognition, or visual
cartography and navigation for autonomous vehicle will be considered.
Parallel computing will naturally be used to accelerate the most
intensive tasks, such as feature extraction (e.g. salient points), or
the implementation of machine learning techniques. A key issue will be
to manage irregularity in data processing.
Algorithmic choices, in particular those dealing with the target
application or the adequation with the chosen architecture, will be made
in collaboration with one or more faculty members, and the resulting
works are vowed to be published.
The preferred profile of the applicant is a post-doctoral researcher
with particular interest in the actual realization of his ideas. He can
also be an engineer without a PhD, but motivated by the search and
analysis of optimal solutions to a problem.
Knowledge and skills:
- Comfortable in programming, including C and C++
- Good culture in Hard/Soft-ware, Operating systems, Parallel Computing
- Image processing and/or Machine learning techniques (appreciated)
- Motivation, tenacity, willingness
- Curiosity, open-mindness
- Good listening
- Easy relationship, good communication
Duration: 6 months starting march/april 2010, renewable for 6 to 9 months
Net salary: approximately 2000 euros per month
