2 Post Doctoral Positions in Computer Vision
  • Research Fellow in Endoscopic Computer Vision (One Year contract)
  • Post Doc in embedded computer vision (Two Year contract)

Research Fellow in Endoscopic Computer Vision 

The Project
This project is investigating the use of computer vision in endoscopy.  The aim is to improve the reporting and detection of colon cancers.

The role
This is a senior research position in endoscopic image analysis.  The ideal person will have strong analysis skills with an ability to innovate in the areas of video and image processing.  A detailed knowledge of feature extraction and classification methods is essential.  It is important for this person to have demonstrated their ability to build high quality working prototypes of image processing systems ideally for third party research partners.   Good communication skills with both technical and medical personnel are essential.

The position
The position is for a fixed term of one year with an earliest start date of September 1st 2006.  The candidate will be appointed on the Post-Doctoral Researcher salary scale [(Point 1 to Point 8) - (€35,886 to €46,552)] depending on qualifications and experience. There are no relocation expenses with this appointment.  Trinity College Dublin is an equal opportunities employer.  


Post Doc in Embedded Computer Vision

The Project
The aim of this project is develop an embedded image motion analysis and classification system on an FPGA platform.  The image processing system will be using a fixed camera to detect and classify hand motion gestures.  

The Role 
This role will require someone with a PhD or equivalent industrial experience (i.e. 4 years).  This person will have demonstrated the ability to manage research projects and complete prototypes etc. for research partners in the area of image processing or FPGA development.  The applied nature of this research will suit someone with a commercial flair.  Experience of any of the following would be considered an advantage: image based motion analysis and classification, DSP or FPGA development, support vector machine classification, Xilinx FPGAs, or Handel C.

The position
The position is for a fixed term of two year with an earliest start date of September 1st 2006.  The candidate is expected to appointed at about Point 1 on the Post-Doctoral Researcher salary scale (indicative salary €35,886) depending on qualifications and experience. There are no relocation expenses with this appointment.  Trinity College Dublin is an equal opportunities employer.  

Trinity College Dublin, IRELAND
The University of Dublin, Trinity College, founded in 1592, is the oldest university in Ireland. Standing on a self-contained site in the heart of Dublin, the College covers some 40 acres of cobbled squares and green spaces, around buildings which represent the accumulated architectural riches of nearly three centuries.  At present there are over 12,000 students and 1,200 staff and a research income of €63.9M (‘04/’05).  

The Department of Computer Science (www.cs.tcd.ie) is one of the largest units within Trinity College Dublin and over the last five years has produced 120 papers in refereed journals, 449 refereed conference papers and a number of spin-off companies.
