PhD RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP WITHIN THE AREA OF MULTIMEDIA INFORMATION RETRIEVAL AT THE NORWEGIAN UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

The Department of Computer and Information Science (IDI) in the Faculty of Information Technology,  Mathematics and Electrical Engineering (IME), The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) offers a PhD research fellowship within the area of multimedia information retrieval, with a focus on context-oriented storage, indexing and retrieval of images.

The position is part of the CAIM (Context-Aware Image Management).
CAIM is a research project supported by the Research Council of Norway, and is a cooperation between NTNU, University of Tromsø, University of Bergen and Telenor R&D in Tromsø. The CAIM project focuses on research and the development of tools for context- aware image management, where image description, query formulation, retrieval from heterogeneous distributed environments, and ranking are designed for using context information. An objective in the CAIM project is to design a system that is flexible enough to support context-aware image management for a vide variety of applications.

LIVING COST IN NORWAY

Because of this tax level, the public health care system is among other free, and  there is normally no need for private health care insurances. Education on all levels (including Ph.D.) is also free.

Daily expences and housing is expensive in Norway. Housing normally costs between NOK 4000 (for a simple one bed studio with kichenette, possibly shared bathroom) and 8000 (for a 3-4 piece apartment suitable for a small family) per month.
