Title: PhD or Postdoc position in 3D Computer VisionPosted: June 16, 2015
Company/Institution: University of Stuttgart
Location: Germany
Department: Machine Learning & Robotics Lab

Description: The Machine Learning & Robotics Lab at University of Stuttgart is recruiting a highly-motivated researcher for PhD or as postdoc. The research will focus on fundamentals of 3D Perception Systems, with opportunities for cooperation with Daniel Cremers' lab @ TU Munich, as well as Andres Bruhn's @ U Stuttgart. Methodologically it will heavily employ mathematical programming formulations.

Applicants should have strong interest and background in the following:

  • Formulation of 3D Computer Vision tasks (including 3D reconstruction, motion-based segmentation, etc) coherently in terms of optimization problems
  • Strong background in optimization
  • Strong experience in scientific coding

On the PhD level, we will love to hire you if you are either a genius in mathematical programming formulations/methods and can also code, or a super hero in coding that can easily pick up the necessary maths.

On the postdoc level, we expect a strong publication record on computer vision methods and experience with optimization-based 3D perception. For experienced postdocs we have the opportunity to hire on the highest salery level (Akademischer Rat, E14/A14) for assistants.

The positions are started with a 24 months contract and may be extendable up to 48 months (or indefinitly for A14). Payment will be according to the German TVL E-13 or E-14/A-14 payment scheme, depending on the candidate's experience and qualifications.
