The Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory is an internationally leading research group in the field of colour, image and video processing. The group has today 8 permanent staff members (4 professors, 3 associate professors, and 1 project manager), 6 post-doctoral researchers, 12 PhD students, and several other researchers, visiting researchers, etc. The group is coordinating and participating in a large number of research projects nationally and internationally. These projects include projects from the European Union as Marie Curie Initial Training Networks, national projects from the Norwegian Research Council, regional projects and industrial projects.
In order to extend our current project portfolio, we are looking for a Project Developer who will contribute to developing a long-term vision and roadmap for Colour and Visual Computing research; the group’s EU positioning and research collaboration; and all stages of research proposal development. The successful applicant will work as part of a large multidisciplinary team, with responsibility to organize focus areas, workshops with partners in Norway and abroad to increase the group’s capacity and competency. Lead and assist in writing several proposals, and take an active role in the development of national and EU frameworks for research in Colour and Visual Computing and related fields. A generous budget for running costs will be made available for this activity. Depending on the success of the proposals, it will be expected that the candidate later take some role in managing funded projects. The candidate is also expected to be an active researcher within strategically important research areas, and to some extent contribute to other academic activities in the group (such as supervision of students).
