The Pattern Recognition and Human Language Technology (PRHLT) group of
the "Instituto Tecnologico de Informatica" ("Universidad Politecnica
de Valencia", Spain) invites  applications for a post-doctoral
position in the fields of Multimodal Interaction, Pattern Recognition,
Computer Vision and Human Language Technology.

The position, necessarily based in Spain, will range from 1 to 3
years, yearly renewable, depending on the subjects chosen and the CV
of the applicants. The gross annual salary will be around 24,000
Euros, 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 job position 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 position 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,

- experience  in  at  least  one  of  the  following  research  areas:
Multimodal Interaction, Pattern  Recognition, Computer Vision, Human
Language Technology,
- good communication skills in English
- experience as a leader of research activities

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