Job Title: Post-Doctoral Associate (Geospatial Computer Vision)

Position Summary

The Multimodal Vision Research Lab (MVRL) at Washington University in St. Louis (WashU) is seeking two postdoctoral associates to conduct fundamental research in the general area of computer vision, with a focus on applications that involve geospatial information. This could include image localization, remote sensing, or social media analytics.

The postdocs will work closely with the lab director, Nathan Jacobs, to develop a research program that is aligned with their personal interests, goals, and abilities. In addition to working on research problems, they will supervise graduate/undergraduate researchers, help with proposal development, and take a leading role in project management. They must have a PhD and have prior experience in publishing original research in top-tier computer science venues.

The position is available starting Jul 1, 2022 (or later) and is fully funded for two years (extensions are possible). The positions are expected to be based on-campus in St. Louis, but there is some flexibility in hybrid working arrangements (e.g., regular work-from-home days).
