Open Postdoctoral Position in Object Detection

The DRAAF project is supported by an interdisciplinary consortium of two French public research labs (INRIA-WILLOW, Paris and GREYC, Caen), as well as a French SME (EVITECH, Paris) which is also the project leader.  The overall objective of the project is to develop a framework for the detection of weapons (guns, etc.) in videos, to address automatic surveillance tasks. It’s a challenging topic as the targeted objects are small, partially occluded and might have very different shapes/aspects. The postdoctoral researcher will join the research laboratory GREYC in Caen Normandy (France) to work on the design of original object detectors in videos. GREYC has strong backgrounds in computer science, signal/image processing,applied mathematics, artificial intelligence, and regularly publish in the top-tier vision conferences and journals.

Required competences:
The postdoctoral researcher will have excellent analytical skills, curious, and creative, and  have an interest in performing cutting edge applied research in a very active area (object detection). He/She should have a strong academic record with solid background in computer science or engineering, and a solid experience in Computer vision and Machine Learning. Good programming skills are expected, preferably in Python/Tensorflow, as well as  skills for turning complex concepts into real-world practice. Any experience in object detection will be a plus. The candidate should have an independent and efficient working attitude and should be fluent in spoken/written English.

Contract terms:
Location: GREYC (CNRS UMR6072), Normandy Univ. (France)
Start: June 2018 (Tentative)
Duration: one year, extension possible. The appointment is full time. 
Net salary: up to about 2800 euros/month depending on experience and achievements in the domain. Living conditions in Normandy are considered among the best in Europe  https://www.normandie.fr

Applicants should submit their applications, as well as the name of 3 referees, to frederic.jurie at unicaen.fr.
