Funded PhD Position in Fine-grained Recognition

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in computer science at Queen Mary. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply. The deadline for applying is February 2015.

The Fine-Grained Visual Categorization (FGVC) Laboratory at BYU is focused on developing computational representations and approaches for fine-grained recognition, precisely identifying objects at the finest levels of detail (e.g. genus/species/sub-species for biological organisms such as birds,fish or insects, the make and model of man-made objects such as cars,planes and cell phones, and also recognition of individual humans). Our lab collaborates with domain experts in these fields, seeking both to leverage their expertise and to apply our techniques to their real world visual recognition challenges.


Application Requirements
We seek exceptional and highly-motivated students with a passion for tackling challenging problems. Students should have a depth of knowledge in mathematical and computational approaches. Prior research experience in computer vision is highly desirable.

Detailed formal requirements are below:
- B.S. in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics,or other related areas with top marks. Candidates with an M.S. degree and research experience are especially encouraged to apply.
- Strong background in both mathematical and computational theory and programming experience.
- Solid oral and written communication skills (if English is a second language a 105+ iBT TOEFL score is required).
- Satisfaction of all department admissions criteria.

How to apply?
Applications should be sent to Prof. Ryan Farrell by email. Please include your CV/resume, academic transcript, and a brief statement describing your preparation/research experience and what you hope to get out of a PhD.
