Postdoc in 3D computer vision for Robotics (P21513)

At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering a position as postdoc in 3D image processing for bin-picking in manufacturing is open for appointment from August 1, 2015 or soon thereafter for a period of 2 years.
Job description

The national project mini-picker aims at developing a compact, easy to use and cheap bin-picking solution. Partners are, among others, Scape Technologies, Universal Robots A/S and PSA Peugeot Citroen.

Our aim in the project is the development of a novel industrial-strength camera that is able to take high-resolution and high precision 3D images for, e.g., bin-picking applications. A 3D camera prototype is already performing very well, but additional improvements are necessary such as the sub-sequent 3D image processing for model alignment and pose estimation. The outcome of this work should be a camera prototype that can be used as part of the compact bin-picking solution or as a stand-alone solution.

We are looking for new member of our large research lab in Copenhagen who

-- very good insight into 3D computer vision, object recognition, pose-estimation and model alignment all in 3D based on RGBD cameras.
-- is highly committed and is able to push results towards perfection.

The candidates should hold a PhD degree in the area of 3D computer vision and robotics, excellent knowledge of Matlab and/or C++, be fluent in English, and have proven ability to publish in scientific conferences and journals.

The positions are financed through the Danish High-Tech Foundation project mini-picker.

You may obtain further information from professor, Volker Krüger, phone: +45 99 40 24 95, email: vok at m-tech.aau.dk

Qualification requirements:
Appointment as Postdoc presupposes scientific qualifications at PhD–level or similar scientific qualifications. The research potential of each applicant will be emphasized in the overall assessment. Appointment as a Postdoc cannot exceed a period of four years in total at Aalborg University.

The application must contain the following:
