The ACVT currently has the following post-doctoral position available:

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Visual tracking in large camera networks

Australian Centre for Visual Technologies
University of Adelaide, Australia

Duration: 2 years

The Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT) is one of the largest computer vision and image analysis research groups in Australia, with expertise in video surveillance, image based modelling and video search. Based in Adelaide, we currently number over 30 members including academics, research staff and students, working on a mixture of “blue sky” and commercially oriented research projects.

We seek a post-doctoral researcher to drive a 2 year project funded by the Australian Research Council, investigating visual tracking in large camera networks. The broad aim of this project is to explore tracking as an optimisation problem. We have previously developed software to discover connections between cameras in large networks, and are interested in using these connections as constraints to track people as they move between cameras.

Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant discipline with a background in computer vision and particularly visual tracking algorithms and discrete optimisation. We are looking for someone with experience in C++, Python and/or Matlab. Written and oral English communication skills are essential.

The successful applicant will need to work both individually and as a member of a broader team, and may also have the opportunity to assist with PhD supervision. The ACVT provides many opportunities for collaboration within the Centre, with visitors and with international partners. The primary output of the project will be quality publications, but there is also scope for subsequent commercialisation.

Salary: University Level B (AU$73,228 – 86,960 depending on qualifications), plus benefits. Funding for relocation and conference travel is available.

Please email any queries or applications, including CV and publications, to:
