Position in: “Scene Analysis for Automated Recycling of Electromechanical Devices”

A Post-Doc (or PhD) position is available at the University of Göttingen (Germany), Third Institute of Physics. We are specializing in machine vision and robotics and this position is for working in the European funded Horizon 2020 project “IMAGINE: Robots Understanding Their Actions by Imagining Their Effects” starting January 2017. The project targets automated disassembly of electronic waste and the responsibility of the applicant will be visual object- and part-recognition in scenes and videos captured during the disassembly process. This requires integration of low level scene analysis components already existing in our lab as well as new developments, mostly on the end of object part localization and recognition.


- Master's degree/Ph.D. in computer science or related field;
- A research record  in computer vision and/or machine learning;
- Strong programing skills.
- Experience in C++ and/or GPU programming is a plus, but not a strict requirement.
- Familiarity with deep learning is also a plus.
- English communication skills (both written and spoken)

Start date: Preferable soon in late winter/ early spring 2017

Duration: Three years, extension possible
