Petros just sent me the following:
I hope you are doing well. We are excited to have a new opening in the Computational Sensing Team at MERL. I would appreciate it if you can post this on your blog, or otherwise disseminate as you see fit, and encourage anyone you think might be a good candidate to apply. Posting and application link is also here: http://www.merl.com/employment/employment.php#MM29Thanks!Petros
Sure Petros, here is the job ad:
MM29 - Multimedia / Research Scientist or Principal Research Scientist - Signal Processing
MERL's Computational Sensing Team is seeking an exceptional researcher in the area of signal processing, with particular emphasis on signal acquisition and active sensing technologies. Applicants are expected to hold a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or a closely related field.
The successful candidate will have an extensive signal processing background and familiarity with related techniques, such as compressive sensing and convex optimization. Specific experience with wave propagation or PDE constrained inverse problems, or with signal acquisition via ultrasonic, radio, optical or other sensing or imaging modalities, is a plus. Applicants must have a strong publication record in any of these or related areas, demonstrating novel research achievements.
As a member of our team, the successful candidate will conduct original research that aims to advance state-of-the-art solutions in the field, with opportunities to work on both fundamental and application-motivated problems. Your work will involve initiating new projects with long-term research goals and leading research efforts.
MERL is one of the most academically-oriented industrial research labs in the world, and the ideal environment to thrive as a leader in signal processing. MERL strongly supports, encourages, and values academic activities such as publishing and presenting research results at top conferences, collaborating with university professors and students, organizing workshops and challenges, and generally maintaining an influential presence in the scientific community.
