Team CHROMA at INRIA Rhone-Alpes, Grenoble, France and TOYOTA Europe are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to contribute in our ongoing collaboration on Advanced Perception and Sensor Fusion Systems for Autonomous Navigation. 

The proposed work shall focus on the development of models and methods to fuse multi-modal information from the kind of sensors that will equip tomorrow's vehicles. The main objective of the project is to improve and extend upon existing methods for image-based optimization and grid-based sensor fusion in order to adapt them to work in the very challenging conditions that are often found in real driving scenarios. The candidate will build upon a set of published and/or patented technologies developed by our team during our 9-year collaboration with Toyota. 

The position is to be fulfilled as soon as possible, ideally in February or March 2017. Applications can be sent immediately and will continue to be evaluated until the position is taken. The initial term is one year, with a possible extension depending on performance. The Post-doctoral researcher will be located at Inria Grenoble, France with occasional trips to Toyota Europe's offices in Brussels. 

The required qualifications are as follows: 

    * PhD in computer vision, robotic perception or machine learning. 
    * Experience in optimization for computer vision (E.g. Semantic segmentation, depth reconstruction, scene flow) 
    * Experience in software development in C++ and Linux. 

The following qualifications would be an advantage: 

    * Familiarity with state-of-the-art deep learning methods 
    * Familiarity with CUDA and Boost libraries 
    * Experience using the Robotics library ROS 

Applicants should submit: 

- A one page cover letter describing their background and motivations. 
- Curriculum Vitae. 
- Publication list. 
- Contact information of two referees. 

Applications should be sent in a single PDF document to:
