*Four (4) Research Fellow positions at the ANU (Australian National
University) in the areas of computer vision, robotics, machine learning *

The ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science, is seeking to appoint
four (4) Research Fellows with strong track record in the areas of Computer
Vision, and/or Robotics, and/or Machine Learning.

The successful applicants are expected to contribute to a newly-launched
7-year major research program of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic
Vision (ACRV).  The ACRV is a recently awarded multi-institutional major
research grant, funded by the ARC (Australia Research Council).   The
Centre is aimed to develop the underlying science and technologies that
will enable robots to see, to understand their environment using the sense
of vision, to perform useful tasks in the complex, unstructured and
dynamically changing environments in which we live and work.

There are four partner Australian universities with the ACRV Centre, which
are Queensland University of Technology, University of Adelaide, Australian
National University and Monash University, in addition to its five
international participating universities: Oxford University, Imperial
College London, INRIA, ETH Zurich and Georgia-Tech.

The four (4) Research Fellow positions at the ANU are available on a
full-time fixed-term capacity at Academic Level-B for a period of 3.5
years. These positions offer great career prospects at a top class
University along with excellent working conditions such as generous
remuneration benefits. Total salary package for the positions will start at
100,000AUD (which includes a basis salary starting at Academic Level-B-2,
plus 17% superannuation contribution, or 1.17x(86,286-98,269)).  Expected
starting date for these four positions is in the second half of 2014, or as
soon as possible.

The successful applicants are expected to align his/her own research topics
with, but not limit to, one of the four main research directions (of the
ANU node), i.e. (a) Vision and Action (b) Robust 3D vision (c) Semantic
Vision and (d) algorithm and architecture (geometry and optimization),  as
detailed in the Selection Criteria (see:

To be considered for this position, applicants must address all questions
in the Selection Criteria, accompanied by a CV, and a list of at least two

Upon success, you will be part of a high performance University that offers
great employment benefits and brings foresight to the research and
education.  You will be a staff member of the Computer Vision and Robotics
research group, working with other ANU chief investigators (currently, they
are Prof Rob Mahony, Prof Richard Hartley, Dr Stephen Gould, and Dr
Hongdong Li), and other researchers and collaborators on the Centre.  The
ANU is a leading research university in Australia, and is a member of the
Group-of-Eight, and a member of the IARU Alliance.  The ANU has one of the
finest campuses in Australia, located in the beautiful bush Capital, city
