*PostDoctoral and Doctoral Researcher Open Positions in *

*Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning*

(Apologies for cross-postings.)

Computer Vision Laboratory led by *Prof.Dr. Radu Timofte
<https://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&user=u3MwH5kAAAAJ>*, from the
newly established *Center for Artificial Intelligence and Data Science
<https://www.uni-wuerzburg.de/caidas/home/>, University of Wurzburg*, is
looking for outstanding candidates to fill several postdoctoral and
doctoral researcher fully-funded positions in the AI, computer vision, and
machine learning fields.

*Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg (JMU), *founded in 1402, is one
of the leading institutions of higher education in Germany and well-known
on the international stage for delivering research excellence with a global
impact. The University of Würzburg is proud to be the home of outstanding
researchers and fourteen Nobel Prize Laureates. Würzburg is a vibrant city
in Bavaria, Germany’s economically strongest state and home base to many
international companies. We look forward to welcoming you to the University
of Würzburg!

*Computer Vision Laboratory* and University of Würzburg in general are an
exciting environment for research, for independent thinking. Prof. Radu
Timofte’s team is highly international, with people from about 12
countries, and the members have already won awards at top conferences
(ICCV, CVPR, ICRA, NeurIPS, ...), founded successful spinoffs, and/or
collaborated with industry. Prof. Radu Timofte is *a 2022 winner of the
prestigious Humboldt Professorship for Artificial Intelligence Award.*
Prof. Radu Timofte also leads the *Augmented Perception Group*
<https://people.ee.ethz.ch/~timofter/> at ETH Zurich.

Depending on the position, the successful candidate will focus on a subset
of the following

*Research Topics:*

• deep learning

• computational photography

• domain translation

• learned image/video compression

• image/video super-resolution

• learning paradigms

• 3D

• image/video understanding

• augmented and mixed reality

• edge inference and mobile AI

• super-resolution microscopy

*The tasks* will involve designing, developing, and testing novel ideas and
solutions in cutting-edge research, as well as coordinating and conducting
data collection for their evaluation when necessary. The successful
candidate will conduct research on deep learning machines and a new cluster
with hundreds of GPUs.


• Master's degree in AI, computer science, electrical engineering, physics
or applied mathematics/ statistics.

• Good programming skills, experience with Python / C++ and deep learning
frameworks (PyTorch/TensorFlow).

• Interest, prior knowledge and experience in one or more of the following
is a plus: computer vision, deep learning, machine learning, image
processing, artificial intelligence.

• Enthusiasm for leading-edge research, team spirit, and capability of
independent problem-solving.

• Fluent written and spoken English is a must.

• Postdoctoral applicants are expected to have a strong track of published
research, including top, high impact, journal (such as PAMI, IJCV, TIP,
NEUCOM, JMLR, CVIU) or conference (such as ICCV, CVPR, ECCV, ICRA, NeurIPS,
ICLR, AAAI) papers.


The positions are open immediately, fully funded, the salaries of the
doctoral students and postdocs are competitive on the German scales TV-L
E13 and E14, up to 70k euros per year, before tax.

Typically a PhD takes ~4 years to complete and a postdoc position is for at
