The computational vision research group, headed by Dr. Thomas Serre at
Brown University, has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow in the field of
computer vision. The research project will lead to the development of novel
approaches for the automated analysis and recognition of action and

Candidates are expected to have a strong background in computer vision and
in particular video-based techniques including tracking and motion
processing. An interest in biological vision and applications of computer
vision to the biological sciences would also be a strong plus. The initial
appointment is for 12 months, renewable for another year, and potentially
longer depending on funding. The start date is negotiable though an early
start is strongly preferred. Salary is commensurate with experience and is
