======================================================================

The Pattern Recognition and Human Language Technology (PRHLT) group of
the "Instituto  Tecnologico de Informatica"  ("Universidad Politecnica
de  Valencia",  Spain)  invites  applications  for  several  pre-  and
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
graduates or  engineers, also  depending on the  proposed developments
and experience  of the  applicants.  In addition,  generous allowances
are  available  to  support  presentation  of  work  at  international
conferences and to attend seminars and tutorials.

This is a  pre-announcement to select candidates for  a several of job
positions in the framework of the MIPRCV programme.

SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT

PRHLT  is  one of  the  seven  research  groups participating  in  the
CONSOLIDER-INGENIO 2010 programme:  "Multimodal Interaction in Pattern
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
applications.  The ultimate goal  is to  show how  existing PR  and CV
technologies can naturally evolve  to help the development of advanced
multi-modal interactive  systems that  will realize the  long standing
promises of a seamless synergy between persons and machines.

REQUIREMENTS AND SKILLS

Candidates to  the various positions  offered must be EU  nationals or
have  residence and/or  working  permit in  Spain.   In addition  they
should have:

- a  high-quality degree  in Computer  Science, Telecom  or Electrical
   Engineering, Physics, or Applied Mathematics,
- strong motivation to conduct research,
- experience  in  at  least  one  of  the  following  research  areas:
   Multimodal Interaction, Pattern  Recognition, Computer Vision, Human
   Language Technology,
- good communication skills in English.

In addition, for the post-doc positions,

- experience as a leader of research activities

Candidates with  their own initiatives  and/or research lines  will be
highly considered.

The  successful  pre-doctoral applicants  will  have opportunities  to
start or continue PhD research work in the above mentioned areas.

SCHEDULE AND APPLICATION PROCEDURE

- Applications are expected by April 30, 2008
- Formal announcements will appear along 2008
- Starting date is flexible, but expected to be before August, 2008.

Applicants are  requested to send their curriculum  vitae, including a
list  of publications,  along  with a  short  description of  research
interests within the MIPRCV areas (all in PDF format) to: 
MIPRCV-PRHLT GROUP <miprcv-jobs at iti.upv.es>.

Reference   letters  will   be  required   for  the   eventual  formal
application.
