Specifically, researchers are to be recruited for the following positions:

1. Image/video decomposition, representation and matching, with emphasis on computationally- efficient CPU- and GPU-based implementation. Experience in image/video analysis and matching,
machine learning techniques, and GPU programming will be appreciated.

2. Audio-visual content instance- and event-based labeling. Experience in image/video analysis, event detection from multimedia, machine learning techniques, and GPU programming will be appreciated.

Candidates must have a PhD (for post-doctoral researcher applicants) or a Master of Science (for research assistant / PhD candidate applicants) in a related field, a demonstrated record of significant research and the potential to make substantial contributions. They are expected to lead relevant research activities (for PhD holders), develop new research ideas and to interact with the multidisciplinary research environment of the host research team. Applications should
consist of a) a cover letter detailing previous experience, research interests and motivation for applying, b) an academic CV and c) contact information for two referees (including e-mail address), which should be submitted electronically to bmezaris@iti. gr until November 3, 2011. The expected starting date for the positions is in December 2011 / January 2012. Competitive salaries will be offered depending on the qualifications and experience of the applicants.
