Ph.D./ Postdoc Position at Saarland University, Germany


Ph.D. or Postdoc Position at Saarland University, Germany


CONTEXT

The Mathematical Image Analysis Group at Saarland University,
Saarbruecken (www.mia.uni-saarland.de) invites applications
for a Ph.D. or postdoc position within the project

  ****************************************************
    Highly Accurate and Efficient 3-D Reconstruction
     from Stereo Images and Stereo Image Sequences
  ****************************************************

funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

The goal of the project is to develop novel mathematical models
that extend our variational optic flow approaches to stereo
reconstruction problems. These models will be implemented in
a numerically efficient way without any additional programme
packages on standard PC architectures.

The project is well-embedded in the research activities of the
entire group, in particular Andres Bruhn and Joachim Weickert.
It is supposed to result in a number of publications in leading
conference proceedings and journals.

The position will start as soon as possible, but no later than
March 1, 2007. The initial contract is for 2 years. In case
of a positive project evaluation, an extension by another year
is possible.


POSITION REQUIREMENTS

The ideal candidate holds a M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree in computer
science or mathematics. He/she has a very good backgound in at
least one of the following two areas:
- Computer vision with optimisation methods or geometic
  approaches.
- Scientific computing with partial differential equations,
  ideally also with multigrid methods.
Moreover, good C programming skills and fluent English are
required.

Helpful, but not necessary, are good knowledge in image processing
and computer graphics, as well as experience with Linux and LaTeX.


ENQUIRIES AND APPLICATIONS

Please respond with a letter or a pdf file describing your CV, your
transcripts of records, your publication list, and a list of two
references (with telephone numbers and postal and e-mail addresses)
to:

  Professor Joachim Weickert
  Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science
  Saarland University, Building E11
  66041 Saarbruecken, Germany
  (http://www.mia.uni-saarland.de/weickert)

Your application should reach us by December 5, 2006.
