Title: Postdoc and PhD student positions in 
3D Geometry Processing / Computer Graphics / Computer Vision
Location: Ecole Polytechnique, France
Start date: April-September 2018
=====================================================================
Description:

One postdoctoral researcher and one PhD student position are available
at the LIX research laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique in France, in
the area of:

"Exploring Relations in Structured Data with Functional Maps"

The goal of this project is to develop tools for the analysis and
processing of complex geometric data, such as large-scale 3D model
collections, by building on techniques from Computer Graphics,
Geometry Processing and Machine Learning. The ultimate objective is to
create a unified framework for representing and analyzing structured
data to solve problems such as: shape comparison and matching, shape
segmentation and labeling, shape deformation and recognition among
others. The project will be funded, in part, by the ERC Starting Grant
EXPROTEA.

The ideal candidates should have strong background in at least some of
the following:

 - Geometry Processing and 3D shape analysis
 - Computer Graphics
 - Computer Vision and Image Processing
 - Knowledge of basic Differential Geometry
 - Machine Learning
 - Programming experience, especially in multimedia data analysis

For the postdoc position, candidates must have a PhD at the starting
time of the post-doc, and should have publications in top venues in
either Computer Graphics (e.g., SIGGRAPH, Eurographics, SGP) or a
related field. The expected duration of the post-doc is 2 years.

For the PhD position, the candidate should have a Master's degree with
preference given to those having strong research experience. The
expected duration of the PhD is 3 years.

Venue and supervision:

Successful candidates will be based at Ecole Polytechnique located in
Palaiseau, Paris area, France. The project will be supervised by Maks
Ovsjanikov (LIX, Ecole Polytechnique):

The expected salary is approximately 2400 euros net for the
post-doctoral position and approximately 1800 euros net per month for
the PhD position.
