Open positions


mmWave sensing with Google (apply now)

Project funded by Google to work with their mmWave Soli device and adapt our machine learning approaches to 3D imaging. The project will involve working with radar/mmWave devices and time of flight cameras, fusing data through artificial neural networks to recreate 3D images of dynamic scenes. The project will last, in a first instance for one year. We are looking for people with knowledge of machine learning techniques applied to imaging and sensing. Some experience with radar/mmWave or time of flight devices and data is desired but not necessary. Start date - as soon as possible.

  • Fixed term Lecturer/equivalent to Assistant Prof. (opening around July 2022)

    We are looking for applicants interested in joining our group with a fixed term lectureship position, in a first instance for two years. This will allow you to develop your own research line within the context of the XL group activities and relevant to a topic in one the areas of Human Augmentation, Quantum Imaging/sensing, Computational imaging. The position also involves teaching duties (for example the experimental quantum optics course that is part of the UofG Masters course in Quantum Technologies). You will have access to our lab facilities in the new Advanced Research Centre building (120 m^2 lab space equipped with a wide range of lasers and camera/detection technologies). Contact the group leader, Daniele Faccio, for more information.

    PhD opportunities

    We are always looking for eager and enthusiastic PhD candidates who want to work in the context of a large group (20+ researchers) and are keen on working with others, also on multidisciplinary projects. Funding comes and goes: the best times of year to enquire are November to March, with many deadlines, specifically for international students including also CSC applications at the ned of January. However, please feel free to contact us at any point during the year and we can discuss options. PhD projects will be related to a topic in one or more of the areas of Human Augmentation, Quantum Imaging/sensing, Computational imaging. Contact the group leader, Daniele Faccio, for more information.
