The center's staff (about 500 people including 320 Inria employees) is made up of scientists of different nationalities (250 foreigners of 50 nationalities), engineers, technicians and administrative staff. 1/3 of the staff are civil servants, the others are contractual agents. The majority of the center’s research teams are located in Sophia Antipolis and Nice in the Alpes-Maritimes. Four teams are based in Montpellier and two teams are hosted in Bologna in Italy and Athens. The Center is a founding member of Université Côte d'Azur and partner of the I-site MUSE supported by the University of Montpellier.

Contexte et atouts du poste

The Inria STARS team is seeking an Engineer / Post Doctoral researcher with a solid background in computer vision. We are especially interested in candidates with backgrounds in computer vision, deep learning, machine learning, and applied mathematics.

The candidate is expected to conduct object detection/tracking research, specifically in videos for construction site monitoring for the BIM2TWIN Project. BIM2TWIN aims to build a Digital Building Twin (DBT) platform for construction management that implements lean principles to reduce operational waste of all kinds, shortening schedules, reducing costs, enhancing quality and safety, and reducing carbon footprint. BIM2TWIN proposes a comprehensive, holistic approach. It consists of a (DBT) platform that provides full situational awareness and an extensible set of construction management applications. It supports a closed loop Plan-Do-Check-Act mode of construction. BIM2TWIN is a broad, multidisciplinary consortium with hand-picked partners who together provide an optimal combination of knowledge, expertise, and experience in a variety of monitoring technologies, artificial intelligence, computer vision, information schema and graph databases, and construction management, equipment automation, and occupational safety. The DBT platform will be experimented on 3 demo sites (SP, FR, FI).

The recruitee will mainly work with Francois Bremond, but beyond that, he/she will be able to collaborate with members of the STARS team. Support for traveling e.g. to conferences or other scientific meetings is provided.


Deadline for applications: Nov. 2022. Nevertheless, the application may be closed before the deadline, if a satisfying candidate is found.

Mission confiée

Tasks involved:

  • Testing face detection algorithms, e.g., state-of-the-art deep learning techniques (e.g., Bytetrack)
  • Proposing extensions to such algorithms.
  • Publications.
