RIT Seeks Two Assistant Professors of Imaging Science at the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science
The Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology invites candidates to apply for two tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant professor level. We are seeking candidates with research expertise in 1) the field of computer vision, machine vision, or computational imaging/photography; and in 2) the field of earth remote sensing systems, science, and engineering.
Candidates will be expected to develop a research program that complements or extends the existing and well-established expertise within the Center including multi-view geometry, ancient document restoration, astronomical and planetary imaging, biomedical imaging and visualization, computational imaging, micro- and nano-scale imaging, remote sensing, vision science, scene understanding, and end-to-end hardware/software imaging systems.
Candidates will be expected to strengthen and expand our core expertise in the research and development of physics-based modeling, imaging spectroscopy, remote sensing instrumentation, computational algorithms, and system analyses applied to earth remote sensing systems, including those on unmanned aircraft systems and small satellites, as well as collaborate with other research areas within the Center.
The successful candidate will be expected to advise B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. students, teach undergraduate and graduate level courses in the core imaging science curriculum, offer elective courses in the candidate’s area of research, and develop an externally funded research program. More information on the activities of the Center can be found at http://www.cis.rit.edu
