Our Exciting Opportunity

We are looking for a researcher in the area of point cloud compression.
An ever-increasing number of point clouds are collected to represent 3D spaces. For this purpose, dedicated sensors such as LIDARs or other depth-sensing cameras are used or alternatively, they are generated from photogrammetry. The use of the resulting point clouds varies from providing spatial awareness of moving objects and vehicles or head-mounted displays to being elements of digital twins of many types of locations. Consequently, there is a wide range of types of point clouds with varying properties and densities. The increased use of these data-heavy point clouds results in substantial amounts of data that will require efficient representation and compression to allow their wide utilization in many practical applications.
The combination of Ericsson's long experience in audio visual-compression technology (through, e.g., our contributions to all recent MPEG video compression standards and all 3GPP conversational audio compression standards) and the experience Ericsson has dealing with sophisticated industry infrastructure for mobile networks put us in a unique position to contribute in this emerging field.

You will

• Be working in an international team of world-class researchers including some of the key authorities and thought leaders worldwide on media coding
• Have the opportunity to influence the development of standards for video coding technology used by billions of people worldwide
• Have the opportunity to deepen your expertise in state of the art media processing and coding
• Be working in a dynamic department with opportunities for learning, taking on new responsibilities, impacting ways of working, and much more

To be successful in the role you must have

• MSc. or PhD in a relevant technical area
• Experience or demonstrated interest in compression algorithms
• Experience or demonstrated interest in signal processing in areas related to image/video coding, image/video processing or computer vision
• Programming in OO languages such as Python, C/C++
• Familiarity with point cloud generation and processing, experience with industrial applications of point clouds is a merit
• Delivered presentations at standardization meetings, academic conferences, university, or industry events

We are looking forward to your application where you indicate the value of your experience and skills to the above technical area.
