Scanning Systems Technical Research Assistant (f/m) and Mechatronics Technical Assistant (f/m)

  • Tuebingen

The Perceiving Systems Department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen is looking for multiple positions to support the scanning-facilities team

Graduate Position

Contact: Senya Polikovsky Jorge Márquez


Graduate Internship: Modelling Cloth Dynamics

The Perceiving Systems department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen is looking for a highly motivated visiting PhD student interested in computer vision and machine learning. The visit is supported by a scholarship of MPI for a duration of 6 months. The applicant must hold a Master's degree and should currently be enrolled in a PhD program at a university or research institution. The project involves building statistical models of cloth garments and their dynamics from 4D scan data. The conducted research is expected to highly impact both science as well as industry in the short and long term.


Graduate Internship: Deep Learning for Computational Photography

  • Tübingen

The Perceiving Systems department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen is looking for a highly motivated visiting PhD student interested in computer vision and machine learning. The visit is supported by a scholarship of MPI for a duration of 6 months. The applicant must hold a Master's degree and should currently be enrolled in a PhD program at a university or research institution. The student will work on state-of-the-art research at the intersection of computer vision, computational photography and machine learning, closely supervised by a researcher from MPI Tübingen. The conducted research is expected to highly impact both science as well as industry in the short and long term.


PhD Position: Efficient Invariant Deep Models for Computer Vision

  • Tübingen

The Perceiving Systems department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen and the Robert Bosch GmbH in Leonberg are looking for a highly motivated PhD student interested in computer vision and deep learning. The duration of the fully funded PhD is 3 years and the student will work 50% of the time at the MPI for Intelligent Systems, Tübingen and 50% of the time at the Robert Bosch GmbH, Leonberg. Thus, this position provides an excellent link between academia and industry. The student will be supervised by a researcher from MPI Tübingen and a researcher at Robert Bosch GmbH and therefore benefit from both environments. The conducted research is expected to have a high impact on science as well as in industry.

Post Doctoral Researchers and Research Scientists

  • Tübingen, Germany

Outstanding candidates in all areas of computer vision will be considered but special emphasis will be given to candidates with experience in modeling and estimating human and animal shape including 3D mesh models, statistical shape modeling, 3D vision, articulated pose estimation, and non-rigid models of clothing, hair and fur. While our focus is basic research, we also pursue commercial applications and applications in neuroscience.

PhD Scholarship in Computer Vision and Machine Learning at the MPI for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen

  • Tübingen, Germany

Visual Scene Understanding is one of the fundamental challenges in computer vision. While recent advances in object detection, semantic image segmentation and classification have spurred novel interest in the subject, most existing approaches work on single images only. At MPI for Intelligent Systems in Tu?bingen we are interested in lifting semantic image segmentation into 3D and reasoning about objects spatially and temporally using multi-view video sequences taken from a movable platform driving through a city.
