MATHEMATICAL MORPHOLOGY CENTRE


RECRUITMENT OF A TENURE TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

IN “IMAGE PROCESSING AND MATHEMATICAL MORPHOLOGY”


LABORATORY:

Centre of Mathematical Morphology, Department Mathematics and Systems,
Mines ParisTech.

LOCATION
: Fontaineble
au (60 km south
-
east of Paris), France

DESCRIPTION OF THE VACANCY:

The Centre of Mathematical Morphology (CMM) at Mines ParisTech invites applications for
faculty positions in mathematical image processing and computer vision. We are seeking candidates
for

tenure
-
track assistant professor positions.

Successful candidates will develop an independent and creative research program, participate in
both undergraduate and graduate teaching, and supervise PhD students.

Candidates from all areas of computer science

related to image processing will be considered, but
preference will be given to candidates with interests in mathematical morphology, applied
mathematics for solving image and vision problems, applied physics for modelling image
structures, optimized algo
rithms for image manipulation, machine learning in computer vision.


Mathematical Morphology Centre

The vacancy to be filled is at the Mathematical Morphology Centre (
http://cmm.ensmp.fr/
), which
has a staff of 10 perma
nent scientists and 15 Ph.D. students and post
-
docs.

The CMM was created in 1968 by G. Matheron and J. Serra, with the aim of developing the
foundations of mathematical morphology. The fields of application focus on biological and medical
imaging, quantit
ative microscopy, physics of heterogeneous media, inspection of defects, scene
analysis and understanding, multimedia applications.

If such a work environment, focused on applied mathematics for image processing and
multidisciplinary by its applications s
trikes you as promising, if you are ready to work in direct
contact with the industrial world and its demands in regard to academic research, please send us an
original research project in relation with our field of activity.

The vacancy is for a research
er holding a PhD degree, with a skill in computer programming and
showing an aptitude for teamwork. The applicant will have to display his/her capacity to conduct
research work in a multidisciplinary context.

Post
