*** Call for applications: PostDoc funded by the SMASH MSCA Program ***

The Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences, University of 
Ljubljana, Slovenia is looking for a strong candidate to join the 
Computer Vision Laboratory as a Post-Doctoral fellow to work with Prof. 
Peter Peer. Specifically, in problems related to deep learning in 
computer vision and biometrics applicable to deepfake detection, 
explainability, and synthetic data. The work will be done jointly with 
the Laboratory for Machine Intelligence (Prof. Vitomir Štruc).

This opening is in response to the 2023 SMASH (machine learning for 
science and humanities) MSCA postdoctoral program (co-funded by Marie 
Sklodowska Curie Actions), which aims to sponsor high-quality 
postdoctoral projects in a few selected universities. More details may 
be found on https://smash.ung.si/open-call-2/. Note that the candidate 
needs to prepare a short (10 pages) research proposal for the nomination 
(after being shortlisted by the supervisor following an interview). 
Shortlisted candidate(s) will be nominated for the SMASH PostDoc funding 
scheme and upon successfully securing funds will be enrolled in the 
program. The program includes a two-year position, excellent working 
conditions, access to top infrastructure (including the HPC Vega), 
substantial research and travel funds and a salary that is significantly 
higher than local costs of living.

Interested candidates in joining the program are invited to send the 
following application documents as one PDF file to 
peter.peer at fri.uni-lj.si by September 28 2023:

• Cover letter briefly describing the motivation for the application.
• Detailed CV highlighting experience in computer vision, biometrics, 
and deep learning including strong prior publications in top journals 
and conferences.
• The names and contact details of at least two referees willing to 
provide support letters.

Female candidates and candidates from other underrepresented groups in 
Computer Science and Electrical Engineering are especially encouraged to 
apply. For any questions, please contact the academic supervisor:
