Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences create a unique environment for multidisciplinary, inspirational and high-impact research and education. Our universities community has its competitive edges in technology, health and society. www.tuni.fi/en
We are seeking new members to our computer vision and machine learning research. We offer several fixed-term positions ranging from 1 to 4 years on levels of:
- PhD candidate
- Postdoctoral researcher
The positions will offer excellent opportunities to work in a team of professionals responsible for developing cutting edge computer vision and machine learning technology, and allows you to learn many aspects from fundamental research problems to concrete applications.
The research work at Tampere University will be supervised by the Assistant Professor Esa Rahtu and it is part of a larger consortium including Assistant Professor Juho Kannala (Aalto University) and Associate Professor Jani Boutellier (University of Vaasa). We work broadly in the fields of computer vision and machine learning. We are pursuing research problems in semantic computer vision (such as video understanding, audiovisual perception, semantic segmentation, and image based localization), in geometric computer vision (such as visual SLAM, visual-inertial odometry, and 3D scene reconstruction), in robot vision (such as human robot interaction and reinforcement learning), and in augmented reality for games and mobile applications (Android and/or iOS).
Some of our previous works are illustrated in the following project pages. You can find more information from our personal web pages.
ICface (Tripahty, Kannala, Rahtu)
StyleTransfer (Tripahty, Kannala, Rahtu)
ADVIO (Cortes, Solin, Rahtu, Kannala)
GP-MVS (Hou, Kannala, Solin)
DGC-NET (Melekhov, Tiulpin, Sattler, Pollefeys, Rahtu, Kannala)
PioneerNet (Heljakka, Solin, Kannala)
PIVO (Solin, Cortes, Rahtu, Kannala)
We welcome applications with any research focus related to computer vision and machine learning. In addition, we are especially seeking candidates with the following research interest:
Data-driven 3D visual computing and image based localization
Video understanding and audiovisual perception
Unsupervised or self-supervised learning for large scale image and video recognition
Zero-shot and few-shot learning
Simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM)
Robot vision and reinforcement learning
Machine and deep learning for robotics
Perception for autonomous systems
Augmented reality for games and mobile applications (Android and/or iOS)
Ideal candidate has a strong programming and mathematics background. Experience in (or strong will to learn) programming with Python or C++/Java are considered as advantages. Previous experience on Android/iOS programming is also beneficial, particularly for the augmented reality topics.
Finland has been assessed to be among the best countries in the world with respect to many quality of life indicators, including being the overall #1 country in human wellbeing. Finland is among the leading countries in ICT & Digitalization, from 5G networks to financial technology, artificial intelligence and AR/VR innovations to IoT, digital education and health solutions. Finland’s booming gaming industry is led by companies like Supercell (Clash of Clans) and Rovio (Angry Birds). More information about studying and working in Finland can be obtained from the links.
The positions will be filled for a fixed-term period of 1-4 years. The starting date is negotiated individually with chosen candidates. A trial period of six (6) months applies to all our new employees.
The salary will be based on both the job requirement and the employee´s personal performance in accordance with the Finnish University Salary System. The starting salary of a Doctoral Researcher is ca. 2400 EUR per month and it will increase during the studies depending on the progress (up to 3100 EUR per month). The salary for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow starts typically from 3 500 EUR per month, and increases based on experience.
In addition to the salary, the contract includes occupational healthcare benefits, and Finland has a comprehensive social security system.
HOW TO APPLY
Please submit your application through our online recruitment system. The first stage of the application process is very light. There is no need for motivation letters or research statements. You only need send the following attachments:
- Curriculum vitae
- School and university score records
- Indicate also the position type you are interested in: phd or postdoc.
The deadline for the applications is November 20th, 2019 at 23.59 (GMT+3). The review of applications will be done on a rolling basis, so early submissions are strongly encouraged. The starting date of the positions will be negotiated individually.
