Open postdoctoral fellowship at Universitat de Barcelona

Open Postdoctoral fellowship/s in the Dept. de Matemàtiques i Informàtica at Universitat de Barcelona.
The Dept. de Matemàtiques i Informàtica (Mathematics and Computer Science) is looking for and willing to support excellent postdoctoral researchers in the fields of Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Human-Computer Interaction who are interested in applying for a Beatriu de Pinós (BP) 2016 fellowship so as to conduct a two-year postdoc at Universitat de Barcelona. 
The purpose of the Beatriu de Pinós programme* is to award 60 individuals grants for the hiring and incorporation of postdoctoral research staff into the Catalan science and technology system. These grants are designed for the incorporation of young researchers (who obtained their PhD between 2007 and 2014 and have not resided or worked in Spain for more than 12 months in the three years prior to date of submission of the application), so that they can improve their professional prospects and obtain an independent research position. Candidates must carry out a research and training project for the entire period of the grant, one that will allow them to progress in the development of their professional careers. Please check the website of the BP programme* for further information about this fellowship.
 Some of the specific projects we are working include:
    + Machine Learning: Deep Learning for time series analysis, Supervised Online Learning Algorithms, Bayesian statistics and deep learning. Contact: Oriol Pujol (
    + Computer Vision: Deep learning for Visual Lifelogging and Egocentric Vision, Medical Imaging and Neuroimage processing, Computer Vision and Deep learning for Food Analysis, Deep learning and Image Aesthetics. Ultrasound image analysis. Contact: Petia Radeva (
    + Human-Computer Interaction: ageing / older people, interfaces for people with mild dementia or with aphasia, universal design of STEM documents. Contact: Mireia Ribera (

Deadline: 01/12/2016
