Postdoc Position at EPFL on Compressed Sensing for Interferometric Imaging

Yves Wiaux just sent me the following:


Announcement: January 25 2011
Application Deadline: March 1 2011
Starting date: as soon as June 1 2011

A postdoctoral position on "Compressed sensing imaging techniques for radio interferometry" is available, as soon as in June 2011, at the Signal Processing Laboratories (SP Lab, of EPFL. The opening relies on new funding obtained by Dr Yves Wiaux and Pierre Vandergheynst at the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF,, in the aim of strengthening the activities of the BASP ( research node in astrophysical signal processing, in collaboration with the Signal Processing Laboratory 2 (LTS2,

The position is opened to any dynamic and highly qualified candidate, Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Physics or equivalent and with a strong background in signal processing, specifically on compressive sampling. Competence in programming (MATLAB, C) is required. Knowledge of signal processing on the sphere, or radio-interferometric imaging is a plus. The successful candidate will be in charge of the collaborations between the BASP node and the international radio astronomy community. In addition to his/her main activities, he/she will also be welcome to collaborate with other researchers of the BASP node and of the SP Lab on signal processing for magnetic resonance imaging.

The appointment is initially for one-year, with the possibility of renewal, based upon performance. Note that EPFL offers very attractive salaries.

Requests for further information and applications (including cover letter, CV, and three reference letters), should be sent to Dr Y. Wiaux, directly by email (yves.wiaux[at], ideally by March 1 2011 (though applications will be considered until the position is filled).

Thanks Yves..... and Pierre. It is now listed on the compressive sensing jobs page.
