The Multimedia Information Systems Research Group at the University of Vienna is seeking to recruit a Research Assistant in the field of multimedia retrieval.

You will work on project funded by the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) and focused on video mining in media repositories. The main objective of the project is the detection of unusual and, thus, potentially interesting sequences in large video collections. Core components include dynamic feature selection, multimodal sequence representation, and data mining and clustering. Candidates should be qualified for and willing to perform state-­of-the-art research, and to acquire a PhD degree in the above topics.

You will have the opportunity to get involved in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level. Additionally, you may participate in the University of Vienna’s human resources development scheme. We offer a great working atmosphere as well as remuneration according to the collective bargaining agreement §48 VwGr. B1 (praedoc), 30hours/week for a maximum of the full project time (3 years).
