[DMANET] PhD Positions at MPI: Combinatorial Optimization in Image Analysis and Machine Learning

The Junior Research Group Combinatorial Image Analysis
at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics in Saarbruecken, Germany,
invites applications for

2 fully funded Ph.D. positions
Combinatorial Optimization in Image Analysis and Machine Learning

Highly motivated individuals with a very good first degree in
mathematics, computer science or science are encouraged to apply.

A strong background in mathematics and some programming experience are
required for these positions. Knowledge of combinatorial optimization is
a plus. Experience in image analysis and machine learning is desirable
but not required.

The group encourages curiosity-driven research. Candidates define their
own research project together with the group in the beginning of their
Ph.D. program and specify its focus based on their interests during the
second year. Excellent candidates will be given the opportunity to work
as visiting researchers at Harvard University during the summer of their
third year.

Applicants should send to one email with
the subject "Ph.D. Position: Combinatorial Optimization in Image
Analysis and Machine Learning", containing the following application
material, preferably in a single PDF document:

- Curriculum Vitae
- List of publications (if applicable)
- List of referees
- Transcripts of master/bachelor program

Applications are now open and are reviewed in the order in which they
