Open Position with the Computer Graphics and Virtual
Reality Group Bremen A32/15
PhD research position (full-time)
with the Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality Group
at the University of Bremen, Germany,
to be filled as soon as possible (under the condition of job release)
Project: Camera-based tracking of articulated objects in real-time and in large volumes
Salary is according to the German Federal pay scale (TV-L 13, gross salary approx. EUR
40,000 p.a.).
Project Description:
The tasks in this position involve the development of novel algorithms and methods to track
articulated and deformable objects (in particular, the human hand) with cameras only, such as
RGBD cameras, that is, without any markers or other intrusions.
The goal of the work is to develop the algorithms and methods that are capable of tracking in
large working volumes, in real-time, with high precision, and under uncontrolled lighting
This could involve, for instance, the fusion of multiple input modalities, such as HDR images
with depth images, and the fusion of multiple camera streams. It is very likely that the work
will also involve the application and adaptation of machine learning algorithms.
The successful candidate could build on previous work we have done in our group in this
area, for instance, a 3D model of the human hand that exposes its large variability, and many
other software components.
About us:
The project offers great opportunities for collaboration with other members of the school of
computer science, such as the group for cognitive systems and the group for digital media,
both at University of Bremen. In addition, we aim at a collaboration with the Fraunhofer
Institute for Medical Visualization (Mevis).
This position provides a vibrant research environment where a broad range of activities
related to virtual reality, computer vision, computer graphics algorithms, and medical IT
systems are being pursued. The successful candidate will be working with a dynamic,
friendly, and helpful team of computer graphics researchers. Our research group is part of the
school of computer science at University of Bremen, which is a mid-sized university with
about 20,000 students, a lot of them international ones, offering a broad range of fringe
benefits such as sports facilities, cultural activities, and daycare. Recently, the University of
Bremen has attained the status of a University of Excellence, which currently only 11 German
universities hold.
Candidates should have an excellent Master's degree (or equivalent) in computer science, or
in a related discipline such as physics, mathematics, etc. Ideally, you have specialized in realtime computer vision. You should have good knowledge about applied mathematical
methods, parallel programming (CUDA), and machine learning methods. Required skills are
solid experience in C++ software development, and a very good command of English
(reading/writing/speaking). Some knowledge about OpenGL is a bonus. The successful
candidate will be highly self-motivated, passionate about their work, creative, and have good
ability to work both independently as well as in a team in a multidisciplinary environment.
Conditions of employment:
The position is available for a period of 3 years.
In case of excellent performance of the candidate, the position might get prolonged, provided
there will be funding available.
The duties of the position will also comprise a small amount of help with teaching in the
computer science program.
As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female employees in
science, women are particularly encouraged to apply. In case of equal personal aptitudes and
qualification, disabled persons will be given priority. Applicants with a migration background
are welcome.
How to Apply & What to do in Case of Questions:
Applications should comprise a cover letter, complete CV including any and all
achievements, degree certificates (including list of courses and grades), names and contact
details of at least two referees, and other credentials if any (e.g., recommendation letters,
publications, etc.). Please address questions about the position to:
Prof. Dr. Gabriel Zachmann, zach at cs.uni-bremen.de
Application deadline: June 26, 2015 (or until a suitable candidate is found).
G. Zachmann
University of Bremen
Faculty 3 Mathematics/Computer Sciences
Bibliothekstr. 1
28359 Bremen / Germany
or per e-mail to zach@cs.uni-bremen.de
For a paper-based application, please make sure to only send document copies as all received
application material will be destroyed after the selection process.
