1 year post-doc : Underwater imaging

11 Novembre 2021

Catégorie : Post-doctorant

One-year post-doctoral position restricted to EU members (due to funding sources) in the field of underwater image enhancement.

Location LIRMM (Montpellier)

Starting date : as soon as possible


Post-doctoral position

Enhancement of underwater video images

Location: LIRMM (Laboratoire d’Informatique de Robotique et de Microélectronique de Montpellier), CNRS-Univ. Montpellier, Montpellier, France.

Duration: 12 months

Starting date: as soon as possible

Due to the nature of the funding, this position is strictly reserved to researchers with French or European nationality (EU). No exceptions will be possible.

The candidate will have to develop and evaluate signal processing techniques to improve the quality of underwater images. The goal is to allow underwater robots to better detect and localize objects or obstacles. Many disturbances deteriorate the quality of these images: color attenuation, backscattering, light effects… Several classical approaches, based on filtering, have been developed in the literature. These approaches are often designed for one specific disturbance. The candidate will study the possible improvement of existing approaches by combining them or by proposing new paradigms. The laboratory already has a large dataset of underwater images that the candidate can use to evaluate his or her methods. Moreover, if needed, experiments with underwater robots are also possible.

The candidate should have his or her PhD in image processing or vision and should have a very strong theoretical and experimental background in image processing, assessed by several publications in this field. Skills in deep learning, pytorch or Tensorflow will be appreciated, but not mandatory. An experience in underwater imaging will be appreciated, but is not mandatory.

The post-doctoral student will work in the framework of the CONGRE ANR project. He or she will collaborate with two permanent researchers of the LIRMM (CNRS-Univ. Montpellier, France), in collaboration with I3S laboratory (CNRS-INRIA-Univ. Côte d’Azur, Sophia Antipolis, France).

Applicants should send a detailed CV to the 2 people mentioned hereafter. For more information, please contact:
