The Autonomous Driving Lab at Carnegie Mellon University has immediate 
openings for a post-doctoral fellow position. The lab consists of 
faculty members, research staff, post-docs, graduate students, and 
undergraduate students.

The successful candidate will conduct research on projects that involve 
the use of computer vision techniques to detect and track image features 
related to road geometry. Example features include (longitudinal and 
lateral) lane markings, stop lines, and road boundaries. In many cases, 
additional data like GPS, map information, and object models may be 
available. The vision and other sensory measurements will be combined to 
form a comprehensive picture of the road and traffic environment.

The position is for one year with immediate start, extendable to a 
second year upon mutual agreement.

Qualifications: Applicants must have an earned doctorate in Electrical 
Engineering, Computer Science, or a related discipline, and computer 
vision research experience. Experience with implementations of computer 
vision algorithms on embedded platforms is a plus.Highly desirable 
skills include programming in C/C++ and Matlab, and working knowledge of 
object detection, machine learning, and Bayes filtering. Other 
beneficial expertise includes: Linux, OpenCV, GIS, OpenStreetMap, and 
Google Earth/kml.

To apply, please contact Dr. John M. Dolan (jmd at cs.cmu.edu 
<mailto:cmertz at andrew.cmu.edu>) with your curriculum vitae, letter of 
application summarizing relevant research interests and accomplishments, 
and the names and contacts of three references. Put "Post-Doc 
Application: Computer Vision" in the subject line.
