The Humanoid Sensing and Perception Research Line ( at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) is seeking to appoint a post doc position on pose estimation with deep learning.

The selected candidate will join the interdisciplinary team of the iCub project. She/he will contribute to the implementation of deep learning methods for object pose estimation, in the context of a large project funded by a private company.

We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic post-doctoral researcher who will join our team to study algorithms for object pose estimation and the integration in a tracking framework. The focus is on algorithms that allow autonomous learning, and incremental machine learning techniques for dynamically adapting to new objects.

Required qualifications:

  • PhD in computer science, robotics, computer vision or related fields
  • M. Sc. in Computer science, Physics or related fields;
  • Ability to analyze, improve and propose new algorithms/solutions;
  • Publications in top ranking conferences or journals in robotics and/or computer vision;
  • Knowledge of Deep Learning for computer vision;
  • Good programming skills (C/C++ or Python);
  • Good communication skills and ability to cooperate within a team;
  • Creative, proactive and collaborative attitude.

Desirable skills:

  • Outstanding technical skills and excellent overall score in master classes;
  • Familiarity with robotic middleware (e.g. YARP, ROS) and development tools (e.g. CMake and Git);
  • Knowledge of Deep Learning tools (TensorFlow, PyTorch, Keras, ….);
  • Experience with algorithms for tracking and pose estimation.

The successful candidate will be offered a competitive salary commensurate to experience and skills.
