The Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT) is currently 
seeking to fill up to 5 posts in computer vision, SLAM and machine 
learning.The Centre is one of the largest computer vision and image 
analysis research groups in Australia. Based in Adelaide, we currently 
number over 40 members including academics, research staff and 
students.  We work on a mixture of fundamental and commercially oriented 
research projects in computer vision and machine learning, and we have a 
very strong track record of publications in the top venues.

Senior Postdoctoral Research Leader -- up to 5 years appointment

We are seeking a highly motivated senior researcher to help lead a team 
of several researchers and PhD students investigating large-scale online 
learning for semantic SLAM and scene understanding.The successful 
candidate will have a doctorate in machine learning, computer vision and 
robotics, with a strong track record of publications, ideally across all 
fields.He/she will have at least two years of research experience in 
addition to doctoral study (or equivalent experience) and preferably 
some experience of student supervision.He/she must be a strong team 
player, and be able to work with the lead investigator (Prof. Ian Reid) 
to set research directions and objectives for the team.The position will 
be remunerated at Level C (equivalent ofSenior Lecturer) for up to 5 years.

The Level C pay scale is currently A$102,429 -- A$ 118,113 plus benefits 
including generous employer's superannuation contributions.

Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

The group is seeking to appoint up to 4 postdoctoral researchers to 
contribute to a range of projects including visual SLAM, large-scale 
object recognition, visual scene understanding, robust statistical 
methods, scene reconstruction and visual tracking.Each successful 
candidate will have a PhD in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering 
or other related discipline, and will have a strong publication record, 
commensurate with opportunity and experience.We expect to appoint 
individuals with a complementary range of expertise, covering computer 
vision, machine learning, robotics and statistical and numerical methods.

The positions will be at Level A or Level B with a salary range from 
A$74,001---A$99,300 plus benefits including generous employer's 
superannuation contributions.

Research Software Engineer

We are seeking a highly motivated researcher/software engineer to help 
lead a coordinated approach to computer vision, visual SLAM and robotic 
vision software and hardware systems.The successful candidate will work 
with a team of several researchers and PhD students helping develop and 
maintain robust, high-quality software and hardware/software 
systems.Publishing is not essential but will be encouraged.The 
successful candidate will enjoy a "hands-on" approach to experimentation 
and "making stuff really work".He/she will therefore have a track record 
in development and maintain of software, sensing and/or robotic systems, 
and good working knowledge of the research landscape in computer vision, 
machine learning and robotics.A PhD is desirable but experience in a 
research intensive environment is essential.He/she must be a strong team 
player, and be able to work with the lead investigator (Prof. Ian Reid) 
to coordinate systems development across the team.

The position will be remunerated at Level A or Level B depending on 
skills and experience.The pay scale for these levels is currently 
A$58,534 --- A$99,300.

Please ensure that applications, together with a full CV (including a 
publication list and statement of research expertise and interests) and 
the names of two referees, are received by 5pm Australian Central 
Standard Time (UTC+9.30) Fri 30^th August, 2013.Please indicate which of 
the posts is of greatest interest.
