The Tsotsos Lab for Active and Attentive Vision at York University in 
Toronto is inviting applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in 
Computational Vision.

This position is funded by a grant titled
"Visual Perception and Reasoning: Integrating Cognitive Programs, 
Working Memory, Attention Control and Visual Processing"
and the overall concept is sketched in 
Experience in one or more of  the major topics of this paper is a 

The successful candidate will be able to derive theoretical solutions to 
components that contribute to the above grant, implement prototype 
systems that demonstrate the theory, and work with an existing team to 
integrate and prove that code within a large system.
Superior system development experience (including GPU programming; 
MATLAB experience alone is insufficient)  is required and should be 
evident in the candidate's CV.

Salary is competitive and significantly higher than normal NIH, NSF or 
NSERC post-doc salaries.
Start date is January 1, 2019 or shortly after.
The position has an expected duration of 2 years, but may be extended by 
mutual consent.

Preferred qualifications include:
• PhD needs to be recent, finalized before start date
• preferred PhD discipline is Computer Science; a classical, broad, CS 
education is important
• strong publication record at top computer vision venues (e.g., CVPR, 
• experience with a variety of methodologies (machine learning is 
important but even more so is the full spectrum of traditional computer 
vision and AI methods)
• documented interests and experience in computational methods driven by 
knowledge of human vision

This is a basic research position, not connected to any application 
domain or industry, so evidence of basic (non-application) research 
accomplishment is important.

If this interests you, please send a full CV to tsotsos at eecs.yorku.ca, 
with the names of three referees, and a short (less than a page) 
statement of why you fulfill the above requirements.
