This postdoc will take place in the context of a 5 year Computer Vision and
Medical Augmented Reality project named FLEXABLE, focusing on the 3D
reconstruction of deformable objects from multiple monocular images. The key
problem is to estimate the 3D shape of a deforming surface from its 2D
projections. This problem is known as Non-Rigid Shape-from-Motion (NRSfM) in
Computer Vision and is largely open. One of the current challenges is
modeling, but there are others, such as the integration of multiple visual
cues in the reconstruction process, and the use of prior knowledge via
object detection. The goal of this postdoc is quite open: it is to study how
these new problems may be solved theoretically and/or practically, and to
validate the solutions experimentally using simple objects and/or
laparoscopic images. 

The postdoc is funded by the EU through the ERC grant FLEXABLE
(http://flexable.u-clermont1.fr). It will take place in the ALCoV group
under the supervision of Adrien Bartoli ( <http://isit.u-clermont1.fr/~ab>
http://isit.u-clermont1.fr/~ab) and in collaboration with the rest of the
group, including surgeons using laparoscopy. ALCoV is a young and extremely
dynamical research group, which has been pioneering the field of 3D computer
vision in deformable environments and optical 3D reconstruction in
laparoscopy. Publication at an excellent level will be encouraged.

The ideal candidate has a PhD in the field of Computer Vision. Send your CV
including the name of at least two referees, one of your publications, and
any other relevant documents by email to Adrien Bartoli. The recruitment
will be done as soon as an excellent candidate is found. The salary is
competitive and the duration is up to 2 years.
