The Visual Geometry and Modelling (VGM) Research Line at IIT invites qualified applicants to submit their CV’s for a Fellow position in Genoa under the supervision of Dr. Alessio Del Bue.
The VGM Lab mission is to provide computational tools for the large-scale understanding of data, from the nano up to the macro scale level. With a privileged focus on image and video data, the main lab goal is to research and apply methods to boost the advancements of life scientists and engineers in untangling and modelling the (big) data as provided by modern sensors (e.g. high-resolution cameras, time-lapse microscopy, 3D scanners).
The scientific core of the Lab relates to the research fields of Computer Vision, Signal Processing and Numerical Optimization with the primary goal to provide algorithms for:
Expertise in these research fields is then transferred to several practical and challenging problems of the industry through ongoing collaboration with world-leading companies in machine vision, automation, energy, avionics, photonics and fashion industries.
VGM is opening 1 fellow position for graduated Master/Bachelor students to work on 3D mapping and object detection using RGBD sensors (e.g. Google Tango, Kinect, and other devices). The aim is to create an autonomous 3D scene understanding system on a mobile platform by programming and optimizing Computer Vision algorithms. The final aim is to obtain a working software using recent advancements in mobile sensing devices and image understanding technology. Candidates should have good programming skills in C/C++ and Matlab and a general knowledge of computer vision and machine learning approaches. Knowledge of OpenCV, ROS and Android developer software frameworks are a plus but not a compulsory skill requested for this project.
The candidate will be also involved in VGM research activities at IIT with the chance of being introduced in several ongoing projects in the Institute. Salary will be commensurate with the candidate skills and experience.
By the time of the application, the eligible candidates should have a Master degree in Computer Vision, Engineering, Robotics or related fields.
Please send your application, including a CV and a brief description of research interests and main accomplishments, to email@example.com quoting “Fellow VGM position 74273” in the email subject, by September 15th, 2017.
