PhD or Postdoc position in 3D Computer Vision
at the Machine Learning & Robotics Lab, Univ. of Stuttgart

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

* 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

The positions are started with a 24 months contract and may be
