    The Computer Vision Laboratory (CVL) (http://www.cs.unr.edu/CVL) at
    the
    University of Nevada, Reno invites applications for postdoc or
    research
    assistant positions starting in Spring/Fall 2002. Active research
    areas
    within CVL
    include object recognition, face detection, face recognition, human
    tracking, head tracking and pose estimation, hand tracking and pose
    estimation, eye-gaze estimation, human activity recognition,
    surveillance,
    and biometrics. CVL is currently funded by NSF, NASA, and DOD. We are
    also
    collaborating with several government and industrial laboratories
    including
    Los Alamos National Lab, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, IBM, Ford,
    IGT,
    and Honeywell. CVL is well equipped with Sun Ultra Workstations, PCs,
    Sony

    12,500
    students come from all 17 Nevada counties, from all 50 states and from
    more than 80 countries. The university conducts more than $70 million
    in
    research grants and contracts each year. UNR is fully accredited by
    the
    Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. The Department of

    Some information about the Reno metropolitan area
    --------------------------------------------------
    UNR is an integral part of the Reno metropolitan area, home to
    approximately
    300,000 people. The 255-acre main campus, located minutes from
    downtown Reno,
    features both contemporary and historic architecture, and the
    university's
    tree-lined Quadrangle is listed on the National Register of Historic
    Places.
    The academic atmosphere is filled with rich surroundings for the
    cultural and
    intellectual development of the students. Reno is bounded on the west
    by the
    majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range and on the east by the rolling
    basin and
    range province, Reno benefits from a comfortable climate. There are
    four
    distinct seasons in this cool, dry climate where the sun shines nearly
    290
    days a year. The area is noted for its variety of recreational
    opportunities,
    which include sailing, camping, hiking, fishing, and sightseeing.
    Within an
    hour's drive of the campus, for example, are Lake Tahoe in the High
    Sierra,
    and Pyramid Lake, a unique prehistoric desert sea. Also within an
    hour's drive
    are a number of nationally known ski areas, including Squaw Valley,
    site of
    the 1960 Winter Olympics. Other scenic attractions include Virginia
    City,
    setting of one of the West's richest mining bonanzas; Genoa, the
    state's first
    pioneer settlement; and Carson City, the Nevada state capital. Reno is
    within 2 hours' drive from Sacramento and 3.5 hours' drive from San
    Francisco. the four departments within
    the College of Engineering. It has 9 full-time faculty and 8 adjunct
    faculty
    and offers degrees in Computer Science (BS, MS) and Computer
    Engineering (BS,
    MS, and PhD). CS has about 260 undergraduates, 60 MS, and 12 PhD
    students.
