About us

The Group for Vision and Intelligent Systems (GVIS) of the University of León (ULE) researches in several basic and applied areas since 2003. We work mainly on three topics: Industrial Quality Control, Medical Image and Cybersecurity.

We are interested in Computer Vision, Machine Learning, Deep Learning. Some more specific examples are image segmentation, texture analysis, shape analysis, object recognition, face recognition, age estimation, perceptual hashing, or natural language processing. We have applied those topics to medical and veterinary applications (e.g., boar semen assessment, carcass lamb flesh classification or classification of healthy tissues), Industry Quality Control (e.g. to estimate the roughness of surfaces or to estimate the wear level of cutting tools for milling processes).

In the last few years, thanks to the framework agreement between ULE and INCIBE (Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute), the GVIS has consolidated their applied research in Cybersecurity and Cybercrime. More specifically, we are working with INCIBE on several fields of Artificial Intelligence (Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, Audio-related fields…) to solve problems at INCIBE projects and services, whose final customers range from Law Enforcement Agencies to citizens and companies. Our work with INCIBE allows us to solve challenging problems in real tools and services, with the possibility of the diffusion of those results (conference/journal papers, local/national media) and transferring our knowledge through Intellectual Property Registrations and Patents.

About the job

GVIS is looking for postdoc researchers in Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing.

The selected postdoc will tackle some of the most exciting problems we are working on with INCIBE to solve cybersecurity and cybercrime problems using CV, NLP and Machine/Deep Learning. Some examples of our research lines are spam detection and classification, phishing detection, text classification, named entity recognition, automatic text summarization or botnet detection, face detection and recognition, image hashing, super-resolution, text spotting, logo detection & recognition, adult pornography detection, image classification, object detection and recognition, scene recognition or texture retrieval.

If you are looking for an opportunity to solve technical problems and build innovative solutions for real projects and services in the field of Cybersecurity and Cybercrime, working within a smart and hard-worker team, this might be the opportunity you are looking for. You would reproduce state-of-the-art research and built novel algorithms and modelling techniques to advance the state-of-the-art in Computer Vision and Deep Learning while providing solutions for INCIBE that would help citizens and companies.
