Description: The Department of Electrical, Computer, and Systems Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY seeks applicants for a postdoctoral research position in the area of real-time person and object tracking for mass transit environments. The goal is to design real-time algorithms for passenger and baggage tracking at a realistic mock-up of an airport security screening checkpoint. The position is available January 1, 2017 and is expected to last one year from the date of hire. The research will involve the design and calibration of multi-camera networks (both fixed-focus and pan-tilt-zoom); image/video stitching; person tracking and re-identification from above and from the side; object tracking (e.g., luggage on conveyor belts); person-to-object association; and anomaly detection such as lost or stolen bags. The postdoc will work under the supervision of Dr. Rich Radke at Rensselaer, and work closely with other performers on the project from different sites. Please see more info at https://www.ecse.rpi.edu/~rjradke/postdocad.html.
Application Instructions: Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and 3 references to Dr. Radke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
