Funded PhD position available at University of Birmingham for 3 years,  
to start October 2011.

A funded research student position is available at the University of  
Birmingham, UK for three years in the area of computer vision and  
robotics.

The research by the candidate will focus on computer vision methods  
that will enable efficient and scalable learning and inference of  
objects and object categories in the context of robotic tasks such as  
object manipulation, grasping, and exploiting affordances. The main  
emphasis will be on developing and evaluating computational approaches  
to scalable visual recognition of 3D object classes, building on our  
previous work on compositional hierarchies
[http://vicos.fri.uni-lj.si/alesl/research/].

Prospective applicants should have an exceptionally strong academic  
record, and a solid knowledge of computer science, and/or mathematics,  
physics and engineering. They must also have demonstrable interest in  
computer vision and/or pattern recognition and machine learning, as  
well as very strong programming skills.

Contact: In the first instance please contact Prof Ales Leonardis: ales.leonardis at fri.uni-lj.si 
  and Dr Jeremy L Wyatt: jlw at cs.bham.ac.uk attaching a CV with your  
academic record.
