The aim of the CIPHR (Computational Imaging and Processing in High Resolution) project is to establish the Center of Photonics and Computational Imaging, a research unit within the University of Tartu (UTartu), that will become a world leader in Computational Imaging, a sub field of photonics. This center will connect already strong scientific fields in UTartu such as optics and spectroscopy, machine vision, remote sensing, electronics and informatics, and will enable them to thrive further by combining expertise and resources to investigate complex multidisciplinary problems.

We are building a lab in Computational Imaging!

We are offering a career opportunity to an entrepreneurial-minded academic in the field of photonics and computational imaging. By accepting the challenge, they will establish their own interdisciplinary research group and work with the modern imaging challenges combining the science of light and computer science in collaboration with local research groups and institutes. In addition to top-notch research they will develop courses in photonics and lead applied research projects together with industry. The position and the group will be funded from the Horizon 2020 Widening ERA Chair project in the amount of 2.5 M€. Soon we will welcome others in joining the digital society at the coast of the Baltic Sea.

University of Tartu to develop photonics with a €2.5m grant from the European Union

University of Tartu researchers are embarking on an extensive five-year project, during which a Centre of Photonics and Computational Imaging (CPCI) will be established with a €2.5m ERA Chair grant from the European Commission. The new centre will bring together the university’s expertise in photonics and related fields, and will also include a newly formed research group led by a top-level computational imaging researcher. A call for this position has been announced already.
