The Electronics and Informatics department (ETRO) belongs to the Faculty of Engineering Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). ETRO performs research on the representation, processing, transmission and visualization of multidimensional signals. ETRO has built a large international collaboration network with a wide variety of academic institutions, industrial partners and R&D centres, and participates in numerous fundamental, strategic and applied research projects in these domains.
Low-power wide area networks (LPWAN) have witnessed a rapid evolution, with many important actors massively investing research efforts in this domain. These networks connect low-power sensing devices which continuously perform measurements and emit small amounts of data. Important recent LPWAN developments include the LoRa, SigFox and IEEE 802.11ah technologies.
The fundamental research problem addressed in this domain is to find out how distributed visual processing can be deployed over LPWAN. Research in this area covers fundamental research problems in distributed visual processing and data compression.
This postdoc position is initially offered for a period of two years with potential for contract prolongation depending on a positive project development.
Besides scientific challenges, the position provides a great opportunity to work closely together with experienced ETRO researchers active in image and video processing as well as to collaborate in running projects with prestigious academic and industrial partners active in these fields.
You must have extensive experience in computer vision and an excellent track record with relevant publications in renowned journals and conferences. The selected candidate must have good programming skills (C/C++ and MATLAB). You have excellent oral and written communication skills. Fluency in English is a must, given the international character of the department.
Interested candidates should submit their application, including a motivation letter, a CV, the PhD thesis, the most important publications in PDF format, and the names of two people who could provide references to:
