Our research group at the University of Bonn is seeking for a highly qualified and highly motivated PhD student in the area of UAV and ground vehicle based optical sensing (3D vision, laser, multispectral) and data analysis (e.g. extracting geometrical and radiometrical parameters, object detection and classification) for agricultural applications.


We seek for a student with a Master's degree in geodesy, computer science or a related discipline with a background in 3D measurement techniques, point cloud processing, machine learning, field robotics, remote sensing, photogrammetry or computer vision. The candidate is envisioned to conduct top-level research and at the same time contribute to ongoing projects on precision farming. International candidates are encouraged to apply, knowledge of German language is very welcome but not required.


Qualified applicants holding a Master's degree should provide the following material:

1.            Cover letter briefly describing their background and motivation

2.            CV including their Master's degree certificate / transcript of record

3.            Date of availability

4.            References

The position is to be filled as soon as possible and designated for a period of 3 years with possible extension. Salary is according to the German Federal pay scale (TVL E-13). All documents should be submitted by January 8th 2017 via email as a single pdf file to Dr. Lasse Klingbeil (klingbeil at igg.uni-bonn.de)


The Geodesy Research Group at the University of Bonn is headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heiner Kuhlmann and is part of the Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation.  The group is concerned with general problems of engineering geodesy and in particular with the generation, analysis and interpretation of 3D data. The group develops mobile multi sensor systems (e.g. unmanned aerial vehicles, mobile mapping vehicles) which allow the creation of highly accurate georeferenced 3D data of the environment while flying or driving through it.  One of many applications is the monitoring of plants and their environments for agricultural purposes.
