In general, we are looking for PhD students with excellent analytical skills that are highly-motivated, curious, and creative. PhD applicants should have a Master's degree (or equivalent) in computer science, mathematics, or a closely related field with an outstanding academic record. Prior research experience as well as a background in computer vision and/or machine learning are a plus, but general aptitude including solid mathematical and programming skills are more important. A good working knowledge of probability and statistics is a further plus. We do not require knowledge of German, but expect strong English skills.
Even if there are no formal openings posted, we still encourage strong applicants to apply. However, we expect sincere applicants to have looked at our lab's research & publications prior to applying.
