Two Postdoctoral Research Assistants in Computer Vision
Department of Engineering Science, Parks Road, Oxford

We are seeking two experienced full-time research assistants to join Prof
Victor Adrian Prisacariu’s research group at the Department of Engineering
Science (central Oxford). They are fixed-term for two years from any time
soon after 1st June 2019. The group is an internationally leading research
group that has numerous scientific awards and has close links with some of
the top industrial research labs.

This is a bleeding-edge research project that aims to link 3D object
reconstruction using SfM and/or depth fusion with 3D deep learning, with a
strong focus on accuracy. The past few years have seen the introduction of
(Lambertian) constrained approaches that, given enough sensor data, can
recover the visible shape of 3D objects quickly and with high accuracy. At
the same time, deep learning has become the go-to strategy for visual tasks
such as object recognition, detection and segmentation. Small steps have
already been taken towards augmenting geometric 3D reconstruction with deep
learning, but the focus is often on simple objects and coarse accuracy.
This project aims to dramatically increase the accuracy of the
reconstructions, while, at the same time, addressing some of the most
difficult corner cases in 3D reconstruction (e.g. reflective and
transparent objects). Importantly, the work is to be done jointly with a
renowned industrial partner and is likely to see widespread adoption in

You should possess a doctorate, or be near completion of doctorate, in
Computer Vision or Machine Learning, together with a strong publication
record at principal computer vision conferences (CVPR, ECCV, ICCV and
BMVC), with a background 3D geometry (depth fusion/SLAM/object tracking and
reconstruction) and/or deep learning.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to victor at robots.ox.ac.uk.
