Postdoctoral researcher in 3D perception
Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS)
Örebro University, Sweden 
The Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS) at Örebro University, Sweden is looking to employ a postdoctoral researcher in computer science, with a focus on 3D scene modeling and articulated object tracking. The position is for a 2 year work contract with an internationally competitive salary and full social security benefits. We offer you the opportunity to  make the first steps of your independent research career: work on an exciting and practically relevant problem alongside an ambitious international research team and in close cooperation with industrial partners. 

About the position:
The postdoctoral post is associated with the nationally funded collaborative project TracMac, which  aims at developing a remote sensing system for the tracking of articulated objects. The position will also involve collaboration with industrial partners (Atlas Copco and Brokk), as well as work in a scientific research team at AASS. Duties of the researcher will involve the design, implementation, and evaluation of prototype software modules for 3D sensor data analysis. Your responsibilities will include travel to partner sites, data collection, as well as the design, implementation and evaluation of a prototype tracking system.  

* A completed PhD degree in computer science, control theory, robotics, or a related discipline. The degree should have been attained within the past three years (time spent on parental leave and civil service can be deducted).
* Solid theoretical background in computer vision and 3D modeling.
* Prior experience in registration, mapping, or object detection / recognition.
* Excellent programming skills and knowledge of C++ and ROS.
* Experience in collaborative projects is a plus.

About the work environment:

The Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems (AASS), located in the city of Örebro in central Sweden, carries out multi-disciplinary research at the intersection of robotics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, computer vision, computer science, and measurement technology.
