We have an open position for a doctoral student in adaptive robot vision
systems, at the Computer Vision Laboratory, Linköping University, Sweden.

Vision based robots can be frustrating to interact with if you are not a
computer vision scientist, as robot actions are often delayed by long
perception-action cycles. In this project we will remedy this by studying
on-line learning aspects of dynamic perception and action. Examples of
topics are: adaptation of the dynamic visuo-motor function, combined gaze
stabilization and target tracking, and adaptation of correspondence
functionality in a stereo vision system.

RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT: This PhD student position is based at the Computer
Vision Laboratory (http://www.cvl.isy.liu.se/). The research is to be
conducted under the supervision of Assistant Professor Per-Erik Forssén

WORK DESCRIPTION: A doctoral student is hired primarily to conduct
research and studies of the chosen topic. A doctoral student may, to a
limited extent, be assigned teaching and administrative duties. Such work
may not exceed 20% of full time.

QUALIFICATIONS: A master's degree in computer science, computer
engineering or similar. Especially important are skills in mathematics and
programming (e.g. C++/Matlab). Prior experience with on-line filtering of
data or visual attention will be positively considered.

SALARY: The starting salary for a doctoral student is at present 25 500
SEK/month. The subsequent salary will be based on salary increments
locally agreed upon.

STARTING DATE: According to agreement.
