PhD Position in sensor fusion for object detection and scene analysis: As a PhD student with IPI, you will be located at the TELIN offices at Campus UFO in Ghent. We offer a fully funded scholarship of 12 months, to be extended up a period of 4 years in total with the aim of obtaining a PhD. The research will be partly fundamental (furthering the state of the art) and partly applied. You will collaborate with international industrial partners while embedded in a university research team that is internationally recognized for its extensive expertise regarding sensor fusion for autonomous driving, traffic monitoring and industrial safety. Applicants with a Master of Science in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Informatics, Electrical Engineering, or similar are invited to apply.
Senior researcher in sensor fusion and active vision: As a (post-doctoral) researcher with IPI, you will be located at the TELIN offices at Campus UFO in Ghent. You will be offered a contract of indefinite duration at imec, after an initial trial period. The research will focus on developing new fundamental concepts for sensor fusion and active sensing and demonstrating in industrially relevant applications (TRL6). You will collaborate with international industrial partners while embedded in a university research team that is internationally recognized for its extensive expertise regarding sensor fusion for autonomous driving, traffic monitoring and industrial safety. The longer-term perspectives include growing into a role of research supervisor, helping to attract new projects, or remaining active in technical research. Applicants who have recently obtained a PhD or are close to obtaining one in computer science, electrical engineering and/or have several years of expertise in sensor fusion, computer vision or related research and experience with collaborating with industry, are invited to apply.
At IPI, we offer you the opportunity to conduct research in a highly international and friendly working environment. We provide ample opportunity for researchers to take initiative in their work and to develop their professional networks. We offer a competitive salary and benefits package. Both positions offer a flexible starting date, with a preference to start as soon as possible. Submissions remain welcome until the positions are filled.
