2 Postdoctoral positions in Audiovisual Learning and Audio Processing - (2300008C)

Commitment & contract: collaboration contract, minimum 12 months - renewable

Location: Genova, Italy

At IIT we work enthusiastically to develop human-centered Science and Technology to tackle some of the most pressing societal challenges of our times and transfer these technologies to the production system and society.
Our Genoa headquarters are strictly interconnected with the other 11 centers around Italy and two outstations based in the US.
We promote excellence in basic and applied research such as neuroscience and cognition, humanoid technologies and robotics, nanotechnology, materials for a truly multidisciplinary scientific experience.

The project is a joint multidisciplinary effort between the Pattern Analysis and Computer Vision (PAVIS) Research Line (https://pavis.iit.it/ ), in the persons of Dr. Pietro Morerio, Dr. Vittorio Murino and Dr. Alessio Del Bue with the partners of the European project XTREME (RIA Horizon Europe, GA n. 101136006).

The European project, titled Mixed Reality Environment for Immersive Experience of Art and Culture (XTREME), is meant to ease access to the many benefits of musical experience by providing a mixed reality (MR) solution that, instead of requiring the participant to be physically present in the venue, brings the concerts and performances to a remote location.
MR retains the immersive experience, and even gives additional dimensions to it by integrating real and virtual contents.

The successful candidate will work to develop specific solutions within the project for:
·         Mapping multichannel sound to an acoustic image stream with beamforming;
·         Multimodal audio-visual detection and fusion for scene representation;
·         Integration of 2D audio-visual reconstructed scene with 3D representations.
Both junior and experienced (up to 5 years of post-doctoral experience) candidates will be considered for the position.
