The research group in Neural Information Processing (Neuroinformatik) at the
Universität Ulm invites applications for a position of a Research Scientist (Wissenschaftliche/r Mitarbeiter/in) that is open by March 1, 2008. Salary is according to German scale for research staff personnel (TVL-13). The position is initially for 12 months, starting in March 2008 (or soon after), but a full duration of 3 years funding is expected.

The position is funded within the EU research project SEARISE. The overall project pursues a highly interdisciplinary approach to develop neural architecture and mechanisms of visual information processing in an observer to analyse motion and form in scenes, group scenic features and deploy attention to salient locations in surveillance scenarios. The announced position here particularly focuses on the development of neural mechanisms of motion integration, how they enter to build attention maps and the development of fast algorithms to demonstrate their real-time performance.
An ideal candidate brings in
* a Diploma or Master degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Physics, or related fields,
* extensive programming experience (Matlab, C/C++),
* sound knowledge in neural models of vision, image processing and/or computer vision, applied mathematics, knowledge about structure and function of the visual cortical architecture,
* basic knowledge in pursuing scientific project work,
* English speaking and writing skills.
The research within the project is expected to be in collaboration with project
partners from several European countries and includes on-site visits in different laboratories. It is expected that the candidate pursues a PhD project related to the research topics of the research project.
The University of Ulm is an equal opportunity employer. Women are encouraged to apply. Disabled applicants will receive priority in case they have equal qualifications.
