Looking for researcher of exceptional talent to conduct 2 year research fellowship to work closely with Professor Philip Torr (http://cms.brookes.ac.uk/staff/PhilipTorr/), at Oxford Brookes vision research group http://cms.brookes.ac.uk/research/visiongroup, and Professor Steve Seitz at Google Research to work on various projects connected with our ongoing work on scene understanding (see here for recent publications http://cms.brookes.ac.uk/staff/PhilipTorr/papers.htm), especially understanding Streetview imagery.

There will be a large amount of freedom for the researcher and it is expected that applicants will have a top flight record, as evinced by publications in top venues such as ICCV, NIPS, ECCV, SIGGRAPH, CVPR, PAMI, JMLR, IJCV etc. The candidate will benefit from close mentoring to encourage them to develop into a top flight researcher.

The computer vision group at Oxford Brookes has a strong international reputation, having taken scientific best paper awards at all the conferences mentioned previously, it is an exceptionally stimulating environment, with strong connections to the top industrial research labs such as Sony, Microsoft and Google, as well as very close links with the Visual Geometry Group at Oxford University with whom we share reading groups and seminars. It is soon to move to brand new facilities near the heart of Oxford, a very academically vibrant city. There will be opportunity as part of the project to travel to the US and work closely with Google research.

The candidate would be expected to have a top flight publication record, demonstrated by publication in top rank venues such as those listed above.
