PhD Position available at Technical University Berlin, Computer Vision
and Remote Sensing Group

"Object model acquisition and object categorization for damage
detection"

Description of scientific project:
Goal of the project is the development methods for automatic object
model generation and object extraction for the acquisition of
geo-information from remote sensing image data. The object models shall
be generated by comparing existing object data given in a geographic
information system (GIS) with remote sensing image data samples.
Applicable methods are for instance patch-based appearance and shape
models.

Collaborations:
The project will be carried out in co-operation with several remote
sensing research groups and companies concerned with disaster management
headed by the German Aerospace Research Center DLR as part of the
DeSecure project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Research and
Technology.

Applicants:
An ideal candidate should have a Master's or Dipl.-Ing. degree in
computer science, computer engineering or remote sensing with some
previous experience on computer vision, e.g. generic object modeling.
Programming skills (C++, Matlab, etc.) are essential.

Language:
Our group is bilingual in German and English with much of the work
taking place in English.

Duration: 3 years
Salary: 0.75 BAT IIa (Berlin)
Deadline for Application: June 10, 2007
Project start: as early as possible

Application:
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, documents regarding
academic career, and the names and full contact addresses of one or two
referees. Please send detailed applications by mail to:
