From being able to log you in with face recognition, launch Cortana with a voice command, to the exciting possibilities in augmented reality and computational photography, are you itching to play a part in bringing applications of computer vision to millions?
The Microsoft Applied Sciences Group incubates disruptive technologies for Microsoft's next-gen hardware products and is working on several exciting projects that will shape how computers and other devices perceive the user and the user's environment. Operating as a startup within the company, this team works closely with several research and product teams to bring compelling new experiences to the market. A lot of these experiences will be powered by computer vision - and as part of this team, you will have the unique opportunity to work on almost every aspect of a shipping vision system: camera optics, sensors, data pipeline and of course, developing and implementing the algorithms that make magic happen!
PhD or Master's degree in Computer Science or related field.
Demonstrable experience in working on implementing algorithms typical of camera processing pipelines.
Demonstrable experience in working with vendor supplied camera ISPs.
Strong coding skills in C, C++
Strong Computer Science knowledge and ability to understand and implement complex algorithms.
Familiarity with deep learning techniques is a plus
Familiarity with Python research stack (Numpy, Matplotlib, Jupyter, OpenCV) is a plus
TensorFlow, Caffe, Torch, CNTK experience is a plus

We are looking for a computer vision researcher with expertise in camera ISP pipelines to help our computational photography efforts. Besides being familiar with state of art algorithms typical in ISP implementations (denoising, demosaicing, chroma correction), the ideal candidate should have experience with vendor supplied ISP implementations. Additionally, exposure to deep learning techniques and a desire to further grow in the area of machine learning will be a huge plus. As part of this team, you will be working with a growing team of talented researchers already dedicated to this mission and use data and hardware only available to a select few. Naturally, the opportunity for you to push the state of the art in this field is huge.
