Open Call for european P-SPHERE project researcher (Post Doc): Deep learning for multi-modal data representations

September 9, 2016 at 10:46 am by

TOPIC DESCRIPTION

We are seeking a postdoc to join our research line on deep learning for multi-modal data understanding. There is evidence that humans learn more effectively when exposed to multiple modalities.

Deep learning is currently the leading machine learning technique to address speech, image and sound understanding. However, these modalities are often considered independently. In this project we aim to jointly learn representations for the various modalities including images, audio and text.

 

PROJECT SUPERVISOR & HOSTING GROUP

 The fellow will report to Joost Van de Weijer, leader of the Learning and Machine Perception (LAMP) team at the CVC. The LAMP team is already working on this research line within the context of an international project with partners in France and Canada.

 

CANDIDATE ’S PROFILE

The candidate should possess a PhD in computer vision or machine learning, and have a strong publication record. We especially encourage candidates with experience in Deep Learning to apply, but other backgrounds in machine learning will also be considered.

The applicants are expected to be fluent in both oral and written communication in English. They should work well in a team, while demonstrating initiative and independence, and willing to supervise PhD students.

 

THE COMPUTER VISION CENTER

 The selected candidate will work in the Computer Vision Centre (CVC), Barcelona, a research institute comprising more than 100 researchers and support staff, dedicated to computer vision research and knowledge transfer.  With a strong international projection and links to the industry, the Computer Vision Centre offers an exciting environment for scientific career development.

The Computer Vision Centre has a plan for expansion of its permanent research staff base, and has received the “HR Excellence in Research” award as a provider and supporter of a stimulating and favourable working environment.
