EPFL's Computer Vision Lab ( http://cvlab.epfl.ch ) has several openings 
for post-doctoral fellows in the field of Computer Vision. The position 
is initially offered for 12 months and can be extended for up to 4 
years. In particular, we are looking for people interested in:

- Video-based people tracking.  We are about to start a project 
involving tracking multiple players in team sports, with a view to 
deployment in major sports venues in 2012. See 
http://cvlab.epfl.ch/research/body/surv/ for more details.

- Modeling neurons from microscopy images. Since microscopes now 
routinely produce high-resolution imagery in such large quantities that 
the need for automated processing and interpretation is becoming 
critical, we are working on approaches to providing it. See 
http://cvlab.epfl.ch/research/medical/neurons/ for more details.


The Computer Vision laboratory offers a creative international 
environment, a possibility to conduct competitive research on a global 
scale, and involvement in teaching. There will be ample opportunities to 
cooperate with some of the best groups in Europe and the USA.

EPFL is located next to Lake Geneva in a beautiful setting 60 kilometers 
away from the city of Geneva. Salaries are in the range CHF 70000 to 
80000 per year, the precise amount to be determined by EPFL's department 
of human resources.


Applicants are expected to have finished, or be about to finish their 
Ph.D. degrees, to have a strong background in the area of Computer 
Vision and/or Medical Image Processing, and to have a track record of 
publications in top conferences and journals such as CVPR, ICCV, PAMI, 
IJCV. Strong programming skills (C or C++) are a plus. French language 
skills are not required, English is mandatory.


Applications must be sent by email to Prof. P. Fua (pascal.fua at epfl.ch). 
They must contain a statement of interest, a CV, a list of publications, 
and the names of three references.
