Seeking a skilled computer vision specialist interested in developing applied solutions for high-throughput analysis of plant phenotypes. The researcher will work in the intersection of Computer Vision and Plant Sciences within the collaboration between Centre of Excellence for Robotics Vision (ACRV, roboticvision.org), Centre of Excellence for Plant Energy Biology (CPEB, plantenergy.uwa.edu.au), and the Australian Plant Phenomics Facility (APPF; plantphenomics.org.au). This is a unique opportunity to participate in one of Australia’s strategic initiatives to strengthen and complement current activities in both Computer Vision and Plant Biology with the goal of applying the latest developments in Computer Science to better understand plant and crop development in changing climates.

The Postdoctoral Fellow/ Research Fellow will contribute to existing School research projects by providing continued development of the experimental facilities and techniques. Research challenges include management of large datasets for real-time segmentation and analysis of 400,000 plant images/day in changing lighting conditions with National Computational Infrastructure (NCI) VM’s and supercomputer resources. Extensions of the primary pipeline into additional areas of research are encouraged based on the applicant’s interests. More information
