Research Associates in Real-Time Computer Vision and SLAM (Two Posts) *Imperial
College London* - Department of Computing
Salary: £36,070 to £43,350 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Contract / Temporary
Placed on: 27th October 2016
Closes: 14th December 2016
Job Ref: EN20160381LE
*Full time, fixed term appointments up to 28 February 2018.*
*To start as soon as possible.*
The Department of Computing is a leading department of Computer Science
among UK Universities, and has consistently been awarded the highest
research rating. In the 2014 REF assessment, The Department was ranked
third (1st in the Research Intensity table published by The Times Higher),
and was rated as "Excellent" in the previous national assessment of
An opportunity has arisen for two Research Associates, at the post-doctoral
level, working on the *EPSRC* funded PAMELA project under the supervision
of Prof. Andrew Davison, Prof. Paul Kelly and Dr David Ham.
We are looking for postdoctoral researchers working in compilers, computer
architecture, and/or programming models, with an interest in engaging with
computer vision applications.
Real-time computer vision, particularly 3D reconstruction and SLAM, will be
a major driver of future mobile and embedded processor architectures, and
there is a great opportunity and requirement to develop vision algorithms,
programming methodologies, accelerator architectures and domain-specific
optimisations that enable flexible 3D scene understanding platforms to be
designed and adapted for a broad range of application contexts. This is the
aim of the PAMELA research project, a collaboration between the
Universities of Manchester and Edinburgh and Imperial College London.
To apply for this position, you will have a strong track record evidenced
by publications in computer systems research, particularly compilers,
architectures, performance portability, for low-power and accelerator-based
systems. The ideal candidates will have some background in computer vision,
and a demonstrable interest and track record in the practical software
skills which enable high performance real-time applications.
You must have a PhD (or equivalent) in an area pertinent to the subject
area, Candidates close to completion of their PhD will also be considered
and appointed at Research Assistant level.
You must have excellent communication skills and be able to organise your
own work and prioritise work to meet deadlines. All applicants must be
fluent in spoken and written English.
*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be
appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £31,740 - £33,370
