Research Fellow (JOB-2017-0166792)



The Rapid-Rich Object SEarch (ROSE) Lab is a joint research initiative between the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Peking University (PKU).  It aims to create a platform for fast mobile searches on object databases.  The three key thrusts of the ROSE Lab are:  (i) visual object search, (ii) video analytics & deep learning, and (iii) multimedia forensics & biometrics.  Resources at the ROSE Lab consist of NTU & PKU Faculty, Researchers, PhD Students, and Visiting Scholars & Students from other institutions from around the world. 



The successful applicant will be responsible for the development of biometric & face recognition algorithms, APIs, and toolkits. This includes:

  1. Develop the biometric & face recognition algorithm for surveillance application and social media application by using C/C++.
  2. Biometric & Face Database collection for algorithm evaluation
  3. Building APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to the biometric & face recognition algorithm and testing them for functionality and performance.


The successful applicant will typically be on a 1 year contract basis, with the option to renew based on the candidate's performance.
