PhD students and Postdocs

PhD students and Postdocs will become part of the Learning and Optimisation for Visual Computing Group at the University of Bonn. We are broadly interested in topics at the intersection of visual computing, mathematical optimisation (discrete/graph-based methods and continuous optimisation), and deep learning. It is expected that applicants are passionate about research and want to push the boundaries in the field of interest.

Successful applicants for PhD student positions typically have a strong background and solid working knowledge in basic mathematics (linear algebra, analysis) and computer science (algorithms, data structures), and some experience in at least one of the following areas:

  • visual computing (computer vision, computer graphics, geometry processing, shape analysis)
  • mathematical optimisation (convex, non-convex, discrete, continuous)
  • machine learning (deep learning)

Applicants for a Postdoc position are expected to have a proven track record of top-tier publications (e.g. CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, NeurIPS, ICML, SIGGRAPH, etc.).

We may offer either full-time working contracts or a scholarship that covers living costs. Please reach out per mail if you are interested in joining our group. You can find further information here.

Note that we do not reply to unspecific/generic applications.
