Offers and Vacancies in the Computer Graphics Group

The interests of the research group members cover a large portion of computer graphics and are described in more detail on our research area pages. The group consists mainly of young researchers of various nationalities. Our working language is English. The group collaborates with several of the major research institutions in Europe and USA and has a high international visibility. There is generous travel support available for all group members.

We are looking for applicants in areas of computer graphics. For some specific topics where we are particularly looking for new group members refer to the bottom of this page. Applicants working in our group are expected to interact with group members and are encouraged to initiate research in their individual areas of specialization.

The Max-Planck-Society intends to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented. Women are therefore explicitly encouraged to apply.

Long Term Visits

If you would like to visit the Computer Graphics Group for an extended period of time, send your CV and a short description of your plans for the visit to Hans-Peter Seidel.

Post-Doctoral Fellowships

Postdoctoral fellowships are available for one or two years and amount to about Euro 1840 per month, taxfree.

Applications (including curriculum vitae, list of publications, research plan, names of three references with their e-mail addresses, and intended period of stay) should be sent to Hans-Peter Seidel who can also be addressed for further information. Electronic applications are possible but should consist of files easy to process on Unix systems (e.g., Postscript produced by dvips, pdf, ASCII, HTML). Please avoid MS Word documents or unprintable Postscript.

The Max-Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication offers postdoc fellowships for positions as leaders of independent research groups.

Ph.D. Positions

The institute is participating in the Ph.D. programmes of the International Max Planck Research School and the Computer Science Department of the Universität des Saarlandes Ph.D. programmes can be entered at any time.

The group's Ph.D. students are supported by several sources:

External Fellowships

Potential postdoctoral fellows and long term visitors may also consider applying for fellowships from external sources. In particular, the institute has already hosted scientists with

You may also consider fellowships offered by organizations from your home country or by the DAAD the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst.

For external fellowships, the institute will provide the necessary support as a host site to an application from a qualified individual with an appropriate research plan.

Diplomarbeiten, Fopras, Hiwi Positions

Current offers for Diplomarbeiten, Fopras, HiWi Positions are available on a separate page.

We also encourage students to directly contact one of the members of the Computer Graphics Group if they are interested in a specific topic even if there is currently no specific offer posted. An overview of current research activities can be found on the Research Areas page.

Some Particular Topics

In the context of national and international projects we are particularly looking for applicants on all levels (PhD students, Postdocs, Research Associates) interested in
