Junior research scientist position → APPLY

The Biovision team from Inria Sophia Antipolis Méditerranée invites applications for a junior research scientist position at Inria (permanent research position without teaching duty). We strongly encourage highly qualified candidates in the field of computational neuroscience and vision science with a strong interest in low vision.

The selection process is national but your application will target a specific team that will support your application. For that reason, there is a two-step process:

Step 1: The candidates are strongly advised to get in touch with us as soon as possible, by submitting their information through the link below. Note that this step is only there to start exchanging with the team and build your project with them. Interested applicants are also free to email us directly to discuss potential fit with the lab prior to applying.

Step 2: Upon approval of your application by the team faculty, the candidates will have to go through the national recruiting campaign starting in February. The application, about 15-20 pages long, includes a summary of past research and future projects and can be in English. The short-listing decision of candidates is due by end of March 2020. Short-listed candidates will be invited for an oral presentation by the beginning of May. Final hiring decisions will be made in June.

 

Internship offer → APPLY

Focus: Research
Subject: Algorithms for a new packing problem: Towards Reading Accessible Newspapers
Supervisors: Pierre Kornprobst (Biovision project-team) and Dorian Mazauric (ABS project-team)
Deadline to apply: December 31, 2019
Abstract: From the numerous daily activities affected by low vision, reading is most strongly impacted. In particular, newspapers pose a unique accessibility challenge. We foresee an original approach to generate more accessible newspaper design automatically. The core of this approach is a new kind of packing problem, which will be the focus of this internship. The missions of the candidate will be to study the complexity of the problem, develop and analyze efficient algorithms for this new packing problem, and finally implement them to test the efficiency of the approach.
