We are seeking a full-time post-doctoral researcher with a strong background in pattern recognition, machine learning, computer vision, and deep neural networks in order to be operative from the beginning of the project. He/she will be responsible for designing and developing our three main objectives to move beyond the current state of the art in automatic reading systems and to develop the different MVPs described in WP2 and WP3 of the project.

With the guidance of the research team and the feedback obtained by our lead users, the requirements of the different MVP architectures will be defined. The post-doc researcher will have the main task of producing the source code by encoding the project requirements in computer language to develop the MVP. The post-doc researcher will also have to confirm program operations by conducting tests; modifying program sequences and/or codes for the proper running of software.

The post-doc researcher will also be writing and maintaining user documentation in order to guarantee the iteration of code in order to let the final solution be scaled up.
