The Social Computing Group at Idiap is seeking creative and motivated young researchers (postdocs and doctoral students) for two topics:

Topic 1: This is an opening for ubiquitous computing researchers (postdoc or doctoral student) to work on machine learning applied to smartphone sensor data for large-scale behavioral analysis in daily life, with experience in machine learning for activity recognition, deep learning, and mobile data science, in the context of a large European project.

Topic 2: This is an opening for a computer vision or multimodal interaction postdoc researcher to work on conversation analysis, with experience in deep learning applied to face, body, and gesture analysis, in the context of an innovation project with an industrial partner.

The positions offer the opportunity to do exciting work on human-centered analysis of everyday life behavior. The researchers will collaborate with Prof. Daniel Gatica-Perez and his research group. The candidates will have degrees in computer science or engineering, with experience in machine learning, data science, and ubicomp (topic 1), and computer vision or multimodal interaction (topic 2). Postdoctoral researchers are expected to have a strong publication record.

The applicants will have strong programming skills (Python, C/C++ in the Linux environment.) Experience with deep learning (TensorFlow, pyTorch, Caffe) is a definite asset.

Salaries are competitive and starting date is immediate. Interviews will start upon reception of applications until the positions are filled.
