*Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision and Computational Photography*

(Apologies for cross-postings. Please share with interested peers)

Computer Vision Laboratory
<https://www.informatik.uni-wuerzburg.de/computervision/> 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 *new* postdoctoral
and doctoral researcher fully-funded positions in the AI, computer vision,
computational photography and machine learning fields.

*University of Würzburg (JMU) <https://www.uni-wuerzburg.de/en/home/>, *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*
<https://www.informatik.uni-wuerzburg.de/computervision/> 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

<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.

• Postdoc 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, from 50k up to 75k euros per year, before tax.
