Tenure Track Assistant Professor ‘3D Computer Vision’

Research / Academic

We offer a Tenure Track Assistant Professor (AP) position within the Computer Vision group (CV), part of the Informatics Institute (IvI) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

The Informatics Institute of the Faculty of Science is inviting applications for a fully funded tenure track position in the field of 3D computer vision and in particular automatic 3D object reconstruction, segmentation and recognition. 3D visual information is the most promising sources of information. To access big 3D data, automatic understanding of 3D visual information is crucial and requires new and visionary solutions. As 3D data understanding is in its very early stage, this tenure track project aims for high risk and visionary developments and exploration of automatic interpretation and understanding of 3D visual information. The overall aim of the tenure track is to reconstruct, recognize and print objects and scenes in 3D. The tenure track will focus on advanced 3D reconstruction and representation methods, recognition and learning methods, and printing techniques. An interdisciplinary approach is desired as 3D visual information is a merging topic between different research areas: mathematics, physics, computation, machine learning, and computer vision. 


What do we require of you?

  • A PhD in a relevant discipline (Computer Science, AI, Physics, Mathematics) and a proven record of high quality and diverse academic teaching, preferably at the Bachelor's-, Master's- and PhD-levels;
