Post-doctoral Position in Visual-based Localization on Complex Changing

The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, is looking for an outstanding researcher to work on the
problem of image-based localization in complex changing environments.
The post-holder will be expected to design, conduct, and manage
original research, with application to robust, real-time localization
on a prototype vehicle. Primary tasks include developing novel
algorithms and approaches for extracting features from images acquired
from a moving vehicle, and the computation and optimization of vehicle
position using Bayesian approaches. Additional tasks include data
collection, field testing of the developed algorithms, and publication
of research results in journals and/or international conferences.

This work will lean upon recent work [1][2].

The candidate must have a
  - PhD degree on Computer Science with expertise in computer vision
  - A proven track record in carrying out excellent research
  - Strong programming skills
  - Excellent English communication skills (oral and written)

Programming in C++ and experience with ROS are very welcome.

To apply, please send a CV, links to relevant peer-reviewed
publications, and reference letters to Daniel Huber
(dhuber at cs.cmu.edu).
