Postdoc Position at Sapienza University of Rome in Robot Vision and Machine

An ERC-funded postdoc position in Robot Vision and Machine Learning is
available immediately at the ALCOR Laboratory (
<http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/~alcor/site/>) at the Department of Computer,
Control and Management Engineering (DIAG) (http://www.diag.uniroma1.it/
<http://www.dis.uniroma1.it/>) of the University of Rome La Sapienza, in
the newly established Visual Recognition and Applied Learning (VALE) group
guided by Prof. Barbara Caputo.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to, online learning of 3D
objects, Web robotics and domain adaptation from unconstrained sources.
Applicants should hold a PhD in robot vision or a related area with a solid
background in machine learning techniques, such as kernel methods, learning
with structured inputs and outputs, and/or deep learning. A strong research
record is required, documented by publications at first-tier conferences
(RSS, IROS, ICRA) and journals (IJRR, RAS, TRO). We are seeking a
self-motivated candidate able to take day-to-day responsibility for the
progress of his or her own activities. The successful candidate will have
no mandatory administrative duties, but he or she should be motivated to
take an active role in the further development of the newly established
research group. Good communication skills and fluency in English are
required. Conditions of employment:
The post-doctoral position is provided for two years, with possibility of
renewal. Salary will be commensurate to qualification and experience and in
line with the main European research institutes. Screening of applications
will continue until the position is filled. Further details and informal
enquiries can be asked by email to caputo at diag.uniroma1.it
<caputo at dis.uniroma1.it>
Application procedure:
Formal applications should include CV, a statement of research experience
and interests, list of publications, academic transcripts, as well as the
contact details of three references. Please send applications as single PDF
document to Prof. Barbara Caputo <caputo at diag.uniroma1.it
<caputo at dis.uniroma1.it>>. About the Department and the Laboratory: DIAG,
former DIS, is part of the University of Rome La Sapienza and is located in
close vicinity of the Colosseum. It has been at the forefront of research
in control theory, computing science and operations research since its
foundation. The Department has experienced significant growth over the
years, and is now home to more then 70 faculty members, strong research
groups, and offers undergraduate and graduate curricula at the
international level. The ALCOR laboratory, established in 1998, has
traditionally explored different aspects of cognitive robotics with a
special focus on vision understanding and perception. Since 2013, Barbara
Caputo has joined ALCOR, where she is starting her new group on Visual
Recognition and Applied Learning, sponsored by the EU project ALOOF and the
ERC project RoboExNovo.
