JOB: Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Robotic Surveillance


Profs. David A. Clausi and John Zelek, Professors in the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo (www.uwaterloo.ca) (Canada), are looking for a post-doctoral fellow (PDF) in the field of robotic surveillance focusing on computer vision techniques.


The surveillance platform is either a moving platform (e.g., vehicle) or a stationary setup.  The project involves, but is not restricted to, the automated tracking and interpretation of urban events such as pedestrian actions and vehicular motion.  Interested people should have knowledge in fields such as computer vision, image segmentation, and pattern recognition and preferably have experience in tracking as well as action detection and recognition.   A leadership role to help direct the current research efforts of graduate students is part of the position.


Full funding is available.  Awardees will be part of the Vision and Image Processing (VIP) research group at the University of Waterloo.  Candidates need a solid grasp of the English language to competently communicate with the research team and publish research results.


For additional information and/or to submit a CV, email Prof. Zelek directly (jzelek at uwaterloo.ca).  Please provide the contact information (mailing addresses and email) for at least three references.  In addition, please include “Applying for Postdoc position” in the subject header of your email.


The University of Waterloo is a highly-ranked Canadian university with a world-class reputation in high tech fields located an hour drive west of Toronto, Ontario.
