Description of the subject area
The Computer Vision Laboratory is a vibrant research environment with four faculty members, two postdocs, 12 PhD students, and several affiliated researchers. The division has been identified as outstanding Swedish research environment within AI in Vinnova’s latest report. The division focuses on research and teaching in the area of computer vision, in particular learning and modeling of machine perception. The CVL team has published methods for deep convolutional networks and efficient online learning as well as efficient methods for geometrical problems at major computer vision conferences such as CVPR, ECCV, and ICCV in the recent past. CVL researchers are particularly known for their work on visual object tracking, signal processing approaches to vision, feature representations, and rolling shutter methods. For further details, see http://www.cvl.isy.liu.se.
A research fellow’s duties may comprise educational responsibilities or research, and administrative tasks. Teachers are also responsible for monitoring developments within their subject areas and developments in the wider community that are significant to their role as a teacher at a higher education institution. The holder of the appointment will participate in teaching at undergraduate and advanced levels.
As a research fellow, you are expected to conduct your own research in computer vision, in particular regarding mathematics and algorithms for 3D computer vision, as well as teach computer vision courses within this sub-area. You are also expected to be active in enabling exploitation of research results, e.g., within digital forensics, and to contribute to ISY’s PhD education in the area.
For this position, the language of instruction will be Swedish and English.
Employment as a research fellow
The purpose of the employment as a research fellow is to give the teacher the opportunity to develop independence as a researcher and to obtain both the scientific and teaching qualifications required for employment as senior lecturer.
An applicant who has received a Degree of Doctor or has the equivalent academic expertise shall be qualified for this appointment.
Priority shall be given to a person who has been awarded a doctoral degree or achieved equivalent academic expertise no more than five years before the deadline for applications for employment as research fellow.

For this position special weight is given to scholarly proficiency, followed by teaching proficiency, in turn followed by remaining proficiencies which should be considered equally.
Scholarly proficiency must have been demonstrated through: original research resulting in publication, through planning and managing research and third-cycle courses and study programmes and through the ability to obtain research grants Scholarly proficiency can also be demonstrated through the ability to achieve results in research through collaboration with other teachers and through the ability to provide information about research.
Teaching proficiency is demonstrated through the ability to convey relevant knowledge and skills, to stimulate students such that they drive their own learning process, to create engagement and interest in the subject area, and the ability to structure and organise both the content and forms of work in relation to the goals of the subject area. In addition, the teaching proficiency must have been demonstrated through the ability to contribute to the development and renewal of education and the ability to reflect on their own attitude to education and the results of their work.
Collaboration with society is an integral part of the research and educational mission of the higher education institution, where the ability to use collaboration with society as a means to raise the quality of the education and research, its relevance, dissemination, accessibility and application may constitute grounds for assessment.
Collaboration within research is demonstrated by the ability to disseminate, make accessible and benefit from research through the production and dissemination of popular scientific material, collaborative projects with external non-academic actors, commissioned consulting as expert, mobility projects, commercialisation, and activities undertaken within the framework of permitted secondary employment.
It is desirable that the successful candidate with another mother tongue than Swedish should be able to teach in Swedish within two years from being appointed.
The appointment is appointed by the Vice-Chancellor following a proposal from the Technical Faculty’s Appointment Board. A letter of intent will be requested from the applicants who are primarily considered to be eligible for the employment.
