General Openings: PhD (student) positions / postdoc opportunities

The Visual Computing and Artificial Intelligence department at MPI is continuously looking for PhD students (wiss. Mitarbeiter) that are fascinated by research problems in Computer Graphics and Computer Vision at the intersection to Artificial Intelligence. 

To directly enter the PhD program in the dissertation phase, applicants should have a Master degree (or equivalent) in computer science or a related field and show an outstanding academic record. We further expect research experience in our field of work, ideally already documented by perr reviewed publications in high quality venues. Candidates should have solid programming experience. We also expect the candidates to be fluent in both written and spoken English.

A PhD at the MPI for Informatics means spending 3-4 exciting years in a highly inspiring international environment with some of the world's leading researchers in computer science. Full funding is provided - for the duration of your PhD you are employed as a researcher (wiss. Mitarbeiter) at MPI. In case you are interested, please submit your complete application package including a CV, a list of publications, transcripts, and the contacts of at least two references via Email or mail to the address below.

Applicants can also apply through the central IMPRS Trust Graduate School or the Saarland Graduate School of Computer Science and indicate that they would like to work with our departmnt. Candidates that have a bachelor degree can also apply through these programs. With a bachelor degree, an successful applicant would enter the preparatory phase of the graduate school with additional course work. Subsequently, the dissertation phase is entered.


Looking for a postdoc position ?

We encourage talented researchers who completed their PhD and who are looking for postdoc positions in our area of research.

Important General Information for PhD / Postdoc Applicants

We fully encourage applications from talented students who are passionate about a career in research. However, we regularly receive very unspecific PhD applications and CVs which lack a focus and a clear motivation. Please note that we only consider candidates who motivate very thoroughly and convincingly why working with me in my field of research is what they would really like to do. In addition to that an applicant should have an outstanding academic record and should be fluent in both written and spoken English. We also expect research experience in a related field of work, preferably documented by respective high quality publications.

Applications which fail to fulfill these requirements will most likely remain unanswered. Finally, the following helps a successful application: 1) We know the applicant personally (e.g through a Master thesis in our group, research visit, etc.) 2) the applicant obtains recommendations from respected authorities in Computer Vision and/or Machine Learning and/or Graphics or related fields.
