Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences create a unique environment for multidisciplinary, inspirational and high-impact research and education. Our universities community has its competitive edges in technology, health and society.

Job Description

We are seeking new members to our computer vision and machine learning research. We offer several positions on levels of:

  • Masters thesis worker
  • PhD candidate
  • Postdoctoral researcher

The positions will offer excellent opportunities to work in a team of professionals responsible for developing cutting edge computer vision and machine learning technology, and allows you to learn many aspects from fundamental research problems to concrete applications.

These positions are part of a joint project with Nokia Technologies, where we develop machine learning approaches for video coding. In particular, we are interested in compression methods where the output is mainly aimed for machine consumption instead of humans. Such approaches are increasingly important due to the emerge of new computer vision based systems, e.g. in autonomous driving and robotics.


We are especially seeking candidates with the following research interest:

  • Neural Network based video coding
  • Video Coding for machines

Ideal candidate has previous knowledge in machine learning, video or image coding, or computer vision. Experience in (or strong will to learn) programming with Python or C++/Java are considered as advantages.


The research work at Tampere University will be supervised by the Assistant Professor Esa Rahtu. The application will also collaborate closely with the video coding team at Nokia Technologies in Tampere. We work broadly in the fields of computer vision and machine learning. We are pursuing research problems in geometric computer vision (including topics such as visual SLAM, visual-inertial odometry, and 3D scene reconstruction), in semantic computer vision (including topics such as image-based localization, object detection and recognition, and deep learning), video and image processing (compression), and statistical machine learning (Gaussian processes).

Working and studying in Finland

Finland has been assessed to be among the best countries in the world with respect to many quality of life indicators, including being the overall #1 country in human wellbeing. Finland is among the leading countries in ICT & Digitalization, from 5G networks to financial technology, artificial intelligence and AR/VR innovations to IoT, digital education and health solutions. Finland's booming gaming industry is led by companies like Supercell (Clash of Clans) and Rovio (Angry Birds). More information about studying and working in Finland can be obtained from the links.

We offer

The positions will be filled for a fixed-term period of 0,5-4 years. The starting date of the positions will be negotiated individually. A trial period applies to all our new employees.

The salary will be based on both the job requirements and the employee’s personal performance in accordance with the salary system of Finnish universities. The starting salary of a Master Thesis worker (Research Assistant) is ca. 2000 EUR per month. The Doctoral Researcher salary is ca. 2400 EUR per month, and it will increase during the studies depending on the progress (up to 3100 EUR per month). The salary for a Postdoctoral Researcher starts typically from 3 500 EUR per month, and increases based on experience.

In addition to the salary, the contract includes occupational healthcare benefits, and Finland has a comprehensive social security system.

How to apply

Please submit your application through our online recruitment system. The closing date for applications is 12 February 2021 (at 23:59 EET /UTC +2).

Please write your application and all the accompanying documentation in English and attach them in PDF format.

The review of applications will be done on a rolling basis, so early submissions are strongly encouraged. The first stage of the application process is very light. There is no need for motivation letters or research statements. You only need send the following documents:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Transcript of studies
  • Indicate also the position type you are interested in: msc, phd, or postdoc.
