Job Details

Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering

  • Fundamental research with an opportunity to co-supervise PhD students
  • Two-year, full-time fixed term contract
  • Salary range: Level B: $108,509 – $128,404  p.a. plus 17% superannuation

The University of Western Australia (UWA) is ranked among the top 100 universities in the world and a member of the prestigious Australian Group of Eight research intensive universities. With a strong research track record, vibrant campus and working environments, supported by the freedom to innovate and inspire, there is no better time to join Western Australia’s top university.

About the team

The Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering under the School of Physics, Mathematics and Computing is renowned for its award-winning researchers, teachers and facilities. The broad-based undergraduate and postgraduate programs are complemented by a wide range of research activities and the School is a leader in developing graduates with high level expertise in computer programming and the methods involved in performing complex computations and processing data. In the resource rich state of Western Australia the opportunities for partnership and collaborative research are extensive and the School has well established links with industry. 

About the opportunity

A unique opportunity to work with renowned scientists in computer vision including Professor Ajmal Mian and his team of PhD students and postdocs. The research project will focus on novel techniques in the area of generative 3D computer vision and developing 3D diffusion models capable of generating complete 3D scenes. This will advance our theoretical understanding of diffusion in complex 3D environments and open up new possibilities for applications in fields such as virtual reality, architecture, and city planning. The proposed 3D diffusion models will also enhance the accuracy of discriminative computer vision tasks in 3D scene understanding, such as object detection, tracking, and semantic segmentation.

In addition to performing blue-sky research towards the project goals, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to co-supervise PhD students.  Focusing on the fundamental problems in generative 3D vision and deep learning, the research outcomes for the project are expected to be published in the top-tier venues such as CVPR, ICCV, ICLR, NeurIPS, and ECCV.

To be considered for this opportunity, you will demonstrate:

  • PhD (completed or near completion) in 3D computer vision, machine learning or closely related field
  • Prior experience in designing and training diffusion models
  • A track-record of high-quality research in computer vision or machine learning
  • First-author publications in the leading sources of the field, especially on topics related to the project
  • Experience in deep learning frameworks such as PyTorch
  • Desire to develop prominent research profile with top quality outcomes
  • Commitment to achieve goals by stipulated deadlines
