Early Stage Researcher - ESR, Doctoral Studentship in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovation Training Network ‘Plenoptic Imaging‘ / Väitöskirjatutkija ( Marie Sklodowska-Curie)

Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences create a unique environment for multidisciplinary, inspirational and high-impact research and education. Our universities community has its competitive edges in technology, health and society. www.tuni.fi/en 

Plenoptic Imaging (PLENOPTIMA) is a four-year (2021–2024) H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network that develops a cross-disciplinary approach to plenoptic imaging, which includes new optical materials and sensing principles, signal processing methods, new computing architectures, and vision science modelling. With this aim, PLENOPTIMA joins five of the strongest research groups in nanophotonics, imaging and machine learning in Europe with twelve innovative companies, research institutes, and a pre-competitive business ecosystem developing and marketing plenoptic imaging devices and services.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Tampere University offers a position for early-stage researcher (ESR). An ESR job position requires conducting research on an individual project at a doctoral student level and studying toward completing a doctoral degree.  We are looking for candidates who have a suitable background and motivation to work on highly innovative projects and be trained in competitive yet collaborative research and study environment. ESR founded by the project will be working on specified projects and will be registered in Joint or Double degree doctoral programmes at academic institutions in Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany and Sweden as described below.

The research will be supported by an extensive training program consisting of training schools, workshops, and webinars.

Mobility between network partners is supported by research visits and secondments. In this way, the employed researchers will be integrated in the network with the aim to help them to interact with their fellows and within different research, development and innovation environments.


ESR3: Noise modeling and denoising in heterogeneous point clouds 

Objectives: Develop models of the positional errors in point clouds, i.e. the positional noise, and design and implement effective estimators of the model parameters from a given noisy point-cloud. Develop procedures to regularize/filter (e.g., denoising) or otherwise process the point cloud, capable of easily leverage the models to support their operations. Model parameters can be provided externally from the estimators, or estimated internally by the processing procedures (e.g., semiblind/blind denoising).

Expected Results: Positional noise models for point cloud data, which include heteroskedasticity, anisotropy of the error distribution, as well as spatial correlation of the errors.

Planned secondments: Secondments to other network partners for up to 11 months have been planned. The secondments include investigating suitable model parameters and feasible optimization constraints that lead to noise reduction and application of developed denoising technique to point clouds reconstructed from a multi-view camera setup.

Joint PhD degree with Technische Universität Berlin.

REQUIREMENTS

  • We are looking for talented, creative and highly motivated researchers.
  • Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in the fields of electrical engineering, communications engineering, physics, optics and photonics, information technology, computer science, or a closely related field, completed with good grades.
  • The positions include transnational mobility (i.e. moving from one country to another)
  • Applicants shall, at the time of recruitment by the host organization, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree that would formally entitle him/her to embark on a doctorate.
  • H2020 MSCA Mobility Rule: at the time of recruitment by the host organization, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the recruitment date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays and time spent as part of a procedure for obtaining refugee status under the Geneva Convention are not taken into account.

WE OFFER

We offer highly innovative training that will help you to build a solid fundamental of the area and will put you in an extremely good position in your future career endeavours in a rapidly growing sector.

The salary will be set in accordance with MSCA ESR rates.

We offer a wide range of staff benefits, such as occupational health care, flexible working hours, excellent sports facilities on campus and several restaurants and cafés on campus with staff discounts. Please read more about working at Tampere University.
