Research Staff position at MERL

Petros Boufounos sent me the following this week:

I hope things are well. We just opened a new position for a member of research staff at MERL with focus on compressive sensing. I would appreciate it if you could post it on Nuit Blanche. The link is here and the posting follows:
Member of Research StaffMultimedia group

Sure Petros ! Here it is:

MERL is seeking qualified and high-caliber applicants for a Research Staff position in the Multimedia Group. The successful candidate will be expected to perform original research in the area of signal acquisition and sensing, with emphasis in compressive sensing and array processing. Further details are outlined below.

       • Conduct innovative research on sensing and signal acquisition emphasizing modern acquisition methods and compressive sensing, with applications in ultrasonic, radio, optical, or other sensing modalities.
       • Prepare patent disclosures on newly developed work and assist legal department in finalizing patent applications.
       • Transfer developed technology to business units through R&D labs in Japan including software, documentation and experimental results.
       • Propose new research directions in sensing and signal acquisition technology, and contribute to overall research agenda of the group.
       • Publish results in major international conferences and peer-reviewed journals, and maintain a presence in the academic community.
       • Applicants are expected to hold a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or closely related field.
       • Applicants with 2+ years of post-Ph.D. research experience are preferred. Exceptional candidates including recent Ph.D. graduates and post-doctoral researchers are strongly encouraged to apply.
       • Extensive signal processing background and understanding of sampling, sensing and signal acquisition technologies is required. Direct experience with compressive sensing is also required.
       • Experience with array processing and/or related acquisition systems is preferred.
       • Familiarity with related technologies such as dictionary learning, convex optimization, or greedy algorithms is also preferred.
       • Applicants must have a strong publication record demonstrating novel research achievements.
       • Excellent programming skills (C/C++, Matlab, etc) are required.
       • Excellent presentation, written and inter-personal communication skills are expected.
