post-doctoral positions in the fields of Multimodal Interaction,
Pattern Recognition, Computer Vision and Human Language Technology.
The positions, necessarily based in Spain, will range from 2 to 5
years, yearly renewable, depending on the subjects chosen and the CV
of the applicants. The gross annual salary will be around 26,000
Euros for post-doc positions and around 16,000 Euros of junior

Recognition and Computer Vision" (MIPRCV - http://miprcv.iti.es).
MIPRCV establishes a five-years research programme to develop Pattern
Recognition and Computer Vision approaches that explicitly deal with
the challenges and opportunities entailed by the human-interaction
paradigm. Based on these approaches, it also aims at implementing
actual systems and prototypes for a number of important
