Research Associate Professor, Research Lecturer or Post-doctoral Fellow Position for Information and Computer Sciences (Kyushu university, Hiroshima-city university, and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology)

We are a research group of Japanese national universities and institutes, and are seeking a maximum 5-year researcher (assistant professor, research associate or post-doctoral fellow, one-year renewal basis) with experience in areas of following fields, but are not limited to: Computer vision, medical imaging, 3D reconstruction, 3D geometry analysis, computer graphics or AR/VR systems. The successful applicants will be part of our project "Development of robust and accurate 3D endoscopic system based on structured light and deep learning" supported by MEXT/JSPS KAKENHI Grant #18H04119 and #20H00611 of Japanese government.

Project abstract

Active vision systems are usually limited to either partial or static scene reconstructions. In our project, we develop a system and technique to acquire a dense shape of a moving object, escpeically human body, using a projector-camera system. To solve the problem, we propose a 3D reconstruction technique based on one-shot scanning method where the system consists of a camera and a static pattern projector. Since a static pattern is used, 3D shapes of fast moving objects are captured with high frame-rates. In addition, since the system is simple, we made ultra-small patter projector for endscope to capture inside human body. Please check the following sites: Outline of the project
We are also developping an underwater scanning system. For the purpose, SLAM, SfM, refrective interface analysis are conducted.
