RIT Seeks Assistant Professor of Computer Vision - Computational Imaging – Machine Learning

The Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science<https://www.rit.edu/science/chester-f-carlson-center-imaging-science> (CIS) at the Rochester Institute of Technology<https://www.rit.edu/> (RIT) invites candidates to apply for a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Imaging Science position. We are seeking two candidates with research expertise in computer vision, computational imaging, or machine learning, in the context of imaging systems and their applications.  Preference will be given to candidates whose research programs complement or extend the existing and well-established expertise within the Center, including remote sensing, optics, photonics, lasers, human vision, computer vision, machine learning, astronomy and space science, instrumentation, augmented and virtual reality, detectors, cultural heritage imaging, light-matter interactions, and nano-imaging.

The successful candidate will be expected to advise BS, MS and PhD students working across the imaging chain, teach undergraduate<https://www.rit.edu/science/study/imaging-science-bs> and graduate<https://www.rit.edu/science/study/imaging-science-phd> level courses in the core imaging science curriculum, offer elective courses in the candidate’s area of research, develop an externally funded research program, and live our values, embrace diverse perspectives, and nurture the RIT community to remain a great place to work for all.
Department/College Description
CIS is an interdisciplinary university research and academic unit dedicated to advancing the frontiers of imaging science and its technical applications, enabled by its robust research portfolio and degree programs. Imaging science is a diverse field which includes all aspects of the “imaging chain”, i.e., source-to-sensor radiometry, image acquisition, image processing, and interpretation by algorithms or people. With BS, MS, and PhD programs that focus on the physics of image formation, quantitative spectral and temporal image analysis, information extraction, image processing, computer vision, and the development and application of sensor and imaging instrumentation systems, the Center’s graduates are in high demand. At present, these programs comprise approximately 100 PhD students, 25 MS students, and 40 BS students. The Center’s 18 core tenure-track faculty, five research faculty, and 14 research scientists are responsible for annually attracting roughly $5M of research funding, derived from funding sources that include NSF, NIH, NASA, DoD, USDA, foundations, and industry. CIS faculty have extensive internal and external collaborations (industry and national labs), and contribute to or are affiliated with RIT’s PhD programs in color science, astrophysical sciences & technology, microsystems engineering, and computing & information sciences. For more information please see our annual report<https://www.rit.edu/science/sites/rit.edu.science/files/2021-07/CIS-AnnualReport2019-2020.pdf> and visit the CIS website<https://www.rit.edu/science/chester-f-carlson-center-imaging-science>.
