The Smart Structures Technology Laboratory (SSTL) is looking for an hourly research assistant to help with image annotation for research towards automated image-based inspection of civil infrastructure. The research assistant will be expected to annotate a few hundred images per week by precisely painting over or highlighting with input tools (similar to MS paint or Photoshop) regions in the image that correspond to certain structural defects or structural components using software tools developed by SSTL researchers. The research assistant will be acknowledged in published research articles and online.
