Job description:
The laboratory of Artificial Vision and Real-Time Systems (AViReS) is offering a one-year Research Fellow position -renewable for 1+ additional year(s)- to:
1) design, develop and evaluate visual based object-tracking and person re-identification solutions on images acquired by a network of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs);
2) implement and evaluate such methods on embedded GPU platforms for the coordination and control of a fleet of drones.

Location: University of Udine
Department: Department of Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics
Unit: Artificial Vision and Real-Time System Laboratory - University of Udine (UNIUD)
Position: Research Fellow
Scientific fields: Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Minimum Education Level: M.Sc.
Contact person: Dr. Niki Martinel, niki.martinel at uniud.it

We are looking for a highly-motivated, independent and skilled researcher with Master or PhD degree and related experience in machine vision, deep learning, artificial intelligence and/or computer science/engineering with interest in embedded Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) systems.
A background and track record of peer-reviewed conference/journal publications in machine vision for UAVs is compulsory (works on visual object tracking and person re-identification are a plus).
Experience with designing, managing and executing experiments is a mandatory requirement while operational knowledge of UAV based systems is an asset. This also includes the actual execution of flights with UAVs and maintenance of the platforms. The Research Fellow will contribute to the UAV image processing workflows and implement algorithms in relevant (open source) software and programming environments.
Relevant knowledge, and at least 1 year of experience in developing solutions with Python is mandatory.
As the Research Fellow will be working in an interdisciplinary team in international cooperation with universities, research organisations and companies, we expect a pro-active and collaborative attitude and excellent communication skills both in presentations and writing.

Conditions of employment:
We offer a full time scientific position for a total period of 1 year.
Competitive salary. As the candidate will be selected, the contract will be immediately activated. We expect the candidate to join the group as soon as  possible. The contract may be extended for 1(+) additional year(s).
