Multiple Positions at Sharp Laboratories of America

(Source: Information from IEEE Jobsite)

1. Postdoctoral Researcher

Advanced Video and Display Technologies Department at SHARP Laboratories of America is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher. We are looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher with exceptional research credentials and implementation background in algorithm development in the area of advanced digital video processing for next generation Ultra HD (Ultra High Definition) displays and Ultra HD ecosystem.

Requirements: We require thesis work and prior algorithm development experience in one or more of the following areas:

- Motion estimation and motion-compensated video enhancement
- Nonlinear enhancement of digital video
- Resolution improvement and up-scaling of video
- Advanced learning-based approaches to video resolution enhancement
- Video texture-noise discrimination for texture preservation

We require rapid prototype development capabilities and strong programming and communication skills. Prior experience with GPU programming and CUDA is required.

2. Algorithm Development Researcher

We are looking for an outstanding researcher for our Video Coding Group who will contribute to the development of next generation video coding algorithms.  In this role, you will be actively involved in developing and refining technology for emerging video coding systems.  These systems aim to provide twice the coding efficiency of state-of-the-art technology with specific emphasis on future large size and mobile displays.

Requirements: The position requires a proven record of algorithm development in the area of video compression with evidence of high-quality research results through publications in referred journals, conferences or standardization contributions.  We require a Ph D in Electrical Engineering or Computer Science or related fields.  Additionally, we require working knowledge of state-of-the-art video coding systems, such as MPEG-AVC/ITU-T H.264.  Expertise in the areas of entropy coding, motion compensation or transform design is preferred, as is working knowledge of MPEG or ITU-T reference software.  Additional knowledge of quantitatively assessing hardware and implementation requirements of algorithms will also be preferred.

Sharp Labs of America (SLA) is a multidisciplinary R&D laboratory pursuing applied research on new and differentiated devices, advanced algorithms, materials and hardware and software systems.   Our work targets both consumer and business applications and includes displays (LCD TV, mobile devices, e-book, 3D, Ultra HD), imaging, solar energy generation (third generation photovoltaics (PV), organic PV), energy management, biosensing, personalized health monitoring, solid state lighting, and printing.  We leverage our multiple research areas with collaborative projects to provide complete and differentiated solutions. SLA also collaborates with product groups of Sharp Corporation Japan and its R&D labs worldwide, universities, US government, and other companies. We are located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Camas, WA, which is next to the Columbia River and 15 miles north of Portland, OR.
