Four funded positions for two Machine Learning projects available

We have vacancies against two funded projects related to machine learning and computer vision that need to be filled urgently. Both the projects are of one-year duration and they will finish on 30 June 2021. The work will involve development for end-user as well as research paper writing. These will be carried out at iVISION Lab, Institute of Space Technology.

Positions and Skill requirement:

Each project has two positions.

1. Expert engineer: 

BE/BS or MS in related fields, should have strong programming skills in Python or C++, should have good knowledge of signal and image processing and machine learning. Must have experience of machine learning tools such as tensor flow, Pytorch etc. Good writing skills are required and previous track record of publications will be a plus. Rs 40k-55k per month will be paid depending on skill set.

2. MS/PhD student: 

Student should have already done related course work and may use this works as his/her thesis, will be paid 10-15k per month depending on skillset. 

Projects and Application Procedure:

1. First Project (Processing and Classification of Satellite Imagery using Machine Learning)

In this project, automated software for processing and classification of satellite imagery using machine learning will be developed. This has applications in remote sensing where different types of ground features need to be identified for land cover classification. 

Interested applicants should send their CVs to Dr. Farrukh Bhatti

2. Second Project (Anomaly detection using machine learning and air-borne hyper-spectral sensing)

In this project, algorithms for anomaly detection will be developed using machine learning and while utilizing hyper-spectral data from airborne sensors. Anomaly detection in the region of interest has several applications in geologic and urban use cases.  

Interested applicants should send their CVs to Dr. Abdur Rahman Maud
