*Job description *

The Signal Processing Laboratory (LTS5) at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) is
recruiting an outstanding postdoctoral researcher to work on *Machine
Learning for Facial Image Analysis*.

Lead by Prof. Jean-Philippe Thiran, the LTS5 develops leading edge research
in image analysis and computer vision, with a particular emphasis on facial
image analysis, including 3D face reconstruction, facial expression
recognition, lip-reading, eye tracking, etc. in close collaboration with
the Istanbul Technical University (Prof. Hazım Kemal Ekenel).

In the context of several industrial collaborations and of a large H2020 EU
project dedicated to Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (Project ADAS&ME -
we have an open position for a postdoctoral research specialized in machine
learning and facial expression recognition. Research will be primarily
oriented towards developing innovative machine learning methods for
personalized facial expression recognition.


   - The position is for at least 2 years (1 year contract, renewable).
   EPFL offers attractive salaries, based on experience and excellence criteria
   - Post-doc fellows of exceptional caliber may also be granted
   responsibility for co-supervising a PhD student on a subject related to
