At TU Berlin we are looking for a PostDoc in Computer Vision. The
position is part of the newly established cluster "Science of
Intelligence" (http://www.scienceofintelligence.de) and belonging to the
interdisciplinary project "Knowledge-Augmented Face Perception" of Rasha
Abdel Rahman and Olaf Hellwich.

Project description:
Face perception and categorization is fundamental to social
interactions. In humans, input from facial features is integrated with
top-down influences from other cognitive domains, such as expectations,
memories and contextual knowledge. In contrast to human perception,
automatic systems of face processing are typically based purely on
bottom-up information without considering factors as prior knowledge.
The aim of this project is therefore to bridge the gap between human and
synthetic face processing by integrating top-down components typical for
human perception into synthetic systems. The results of experiments
involving human subjects in combination with video recordings will be
used in deep learning training procedures aiming at the development of
computational models.

Conducting experimental research in computer vision; interacting within
the SCIoI cluster of excellence; compiling results for presentations,
project reports, and publications; participating in research colloquia,
lecture series and workshops, as well as active engagement in the
cluster's research activities.

Applicants must hold a PhD degree in Computer Science, Computer
Engineering or related engineering disciplines and should have proven
skills/background in following topics:
- Computer vision and image analyses
- In depth programming skills (C/C++, Python)
- Laboratory experience using cameras and robotic camera platforms
Strong interest in psychology, visual perception and machine learning is
expected. Good command of English language (spoken and written).

Project start date: October 1, 2019

Principal Investigators:
Olaf Hellwich, Rasha Abdel Rahman

Duration: 3 years

Salary Level: FULL TIME with professional experience, E13 TV-L Berliner
