Before contacting

Please note that I will not be replaying to job-related e-mails when it is evident that the sender did not consult this page, or is mass-sending it to a large number of academics. When contacting me, please attach your CV, which should include GPAs for the degrees you have obtained. Please state clearly which position you are interested in (the job title and the NR number) unless this is a general enquiry. It is also worth stating why you are the right candidate for the advertised position, such as what is your prior experience in the given area.

Summer Internships

There will be a number of summer internship opportunities in my group for registered University of Cambridge students. The list of the internships can be checked on the UROP web-site.

The Computer Laboratory generally does offer internships for non-registered (non-Cambridge) students, so please do not contact me asking for such. The Computer Laboratory also does not take part in Erasmus exchange programs. We make exceptions from that rule only when the research interest of a visitor are well aligned with the interests of the group, or there is on-going collaboration between our group and visitor's home institution.

PhD studentships

We are currently offering a fully-funded PhD position:

The goal is to develop algorithms for the automated assessment of video quality, which could be used to optimize content delivery. The results of this work can potentially change video delivery and optimize video processing for millions of streaming video users worldwide. It is a great opportunity for someone interested in the future of video streaming, modelling of visual perception, human factors, with a dose of machine learning. The studentship is supported by a gift-funding from Netflix and with a possibility of close collaboration. If you are interested in applying, please contact me by email so that I can advise on the research proposal.

I am happy to supervise PhD students in the following areas:

Strong candidates can apply to the general PhD admission program link. The candidates need to secure their own funding, for example from one of the scholarships offered by the University or the Department. Note that you are recommended to consult the topic of your proposal with a potential supervisor before submitting the application.

Research Assistant (pre-doc) / Research Associate (post-doc)

We are looking for very strong candidates with background in Computer Graphics or Computer Vision, and with the interest aligned with the interests of my group. The candidates should preferably have an established track record of publications in good venues (SIGGRAPH, Eurographics, CVPR, ICCV, ECCV). If you are interested in applying for such a position, please contact me. The positions are either listed below or they will be officially advertised in due time. In either case, I am happy to discuss them informally.
