The Tsotsos Lab for Active and Attentive Vision at York University in
Toronto is inviting applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellowship in
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
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,
ICCV, ECCV, BMVC, ACCV, IJCV, IEEE PAMI, CVIU, IVC)
• 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.
