An opening is available for an OPEN RESEARCH POSITION at the University of Ljubljana in the area of deep learning for computer vision. The opening is available within a national research project funded by the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS). The goal of the project is to develop deep learning models able to infer volumetric part-based models from visual data, e.g., depth images, point clouds, intensity images, etc.
The appointment is from January 1st, 2019 (may be delayed a few (1-3) months if needed) until June 30th, 2020 with a possible extension.
If the candidate does not hold a PhD degree, enrollment into the Doctoral School of the University of Ljubljana is also possible.
