PhD & Postdocs in Mathematical Image Processing and Computer Vision, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Applicants are invited to join the computational mathematics and scientific computing group in NTU (Nanyang Technological University) on interdisciplinary computational imaging, computer vision and computer graphics, at the boundaries between mathematics, computer science and engineering. This group has been funded to build a national resource to explore new mathematical and computational methods for PDE-based image processing and analysis, surface processing involving compression, reconstruction, remeshing and encoding for Interactive Digital Media development.

We hereby invite applications for 5 Postdoc positions and up to 9 PhD scholars

* All positions are available from December 1 2007.
* Review process will start October 1 2007 and continue until all positions are filled.
* The postdoc positions will be granted for a period of one year and can be extended up to three years after appropriate probation.
* The PhD scholarships are normally granted for a period of 4 years. Applicants must satisfy the entrance requirements for the doctoral degree program and other regulations related to PhD studies.

Requirements for the Postdoc positions

The postdoc candidates will be working with PDE based image processing and visualization related to surfaces. Thus, it is preferred that the candidate should have sufficient knowledge and experience with numerical simulations for partial differential equations. Optimization methods are also central in the project. Candidates with strong backgrounds in any area of medical imaging, image processing, computer vision and data compression are also encouraged to apply.

Salary will be commensurate with experience and background.

Requirements for the PhD positions

The PhD candidate should have taken sufficient courses in applied mathematics related to numerical approximations or have a strong course record any area of image processing, medical imaging, optimization, computer vision or data compression. Experience with numerical simulations and project work is an advantage. The candidate is supposed to finish a PhD degree in applied mathematics within 4 years.

For more information on the project, please contact
