A postdoctoral position in Machine Learning with application
to Computer Vision is available in the Computer Vision group
(CVAP) at KTH, Stockholm.

The position will be associated with an ongoing project in,
Computer Vision that can be either:

1. Wearable Visual Information Systems

http://www.nada.kth.se/cvap/vinst.html

This project aims at the processing of visual information captured in
wearable cameras. The main objectives are recognition, classification,
location finding in e.g. mobile phone cameras as well as the automatic
creation of visual diaries from continuously wearable cameras.

2. Capturing and Visualizing Large Scale Human Action

This project is also closely associated with the European project
FINE. http://www.projectfine.eu/

This project has as its main goal the mapping of human sports action
from video into 3D animations. Specifically we will consider the 3D
capture of players actions in football games. The project is carried
out in connection with the Swedish industrial partner TRACAB as well as
other industrial partners in Europe.

The length of the position is 2 years with possible extension up to 4
years. The applicant is expected to perform full time research of
which approximately 50% will be devoted to the associated project.

Applications should include a cover letter indicating the associated
research project of interest, a curriculum vitae, and the contact
information of references.

The position is part of a larger (3) post-doc program at KTH
