Open position for internship on “Multi-view omnidirectional video communications”
A user who watches a 360-degree video with a head-mounted display (HMD) can choose which portion of spherical content to display by moving the head to a specific direction. In fully immersive virtual reality applications, apart from rotating his head, the user can also navigate the scene by moving within it, using dedicated cursors. This allows to control the point of view from which the scene is viewed. In order to allow free viewpoint navigation, the same scene have to be captured by many different cameras located at different positions in space, i.e. a multi-view camera set up.
The LTS4 is looking for highly motivated candidates with excellent programming skills to implement a solution for multi-view 360° video delivery. The internship can go from 3 up to 6 months and develops in the context of a collaboration between EPFL and Swisscom. To apply to this internship please send your CV, motivation letter and reference letters, if any, to:
Requirements: hands-on attitude, C/C++ programming, experience with Android development, Daydream, and/or OpenGL will be a plus.
New Postdoc Opening (Jan 2015)
Applications are invited for a position as full time PostDoc in the Signal Processing Laboratory (LTS4) of EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. The position is related to a collaborative research project related to content- and context-adaptive multimedia communication, and the successful applicant will work in particular on modelling and learning tasks for the design of adaptive distributed control algorithms.
The candidate should have a PhD in electrical engineering, computer science, or communications systems. An in-depth knowledge of one of the following topics is a plus: learning theory and algorithms, distributed control, interactive multimedia communication, graph signal processing or network information processing.
Applications should include a resume, a brief description of research interests, and the names and complete addresses of three referees. The referees may be contacted to ascertain suitability for the position. Applications should be sent by email to:
Prospective PhD Students
In order to become a PhD student at LTS4, you should first be admitted to the EPFL graduate school, preferably in the EE program (EDEE). You can apply online.
