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 combining ideas from physical simulation and data-driven models to learn models of soft-tiusse motions from thousands of 4D scans. Experience in physically based simulation is a plus.
The conducted research is expected to highly impact both science as well as industry in the short and long term.
