Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality Institute
Bremen University

Applications are invited for a full-time PhD position

Project Description:
The tasks in this position involve the development of novel algorithms and methods to track 
articulated and deformable objects (in particular, the human hand) with cameras only, 
such as RGBD cameras, that is, without any markers or other intrusions.
The goal of the work is to develop the algorithms and methods that are capable 
of tracking in large working volumes, in real-time, with high precision, 
and under uncontrolled lighting conditions.
This could involve, for instance, the fusion of multiple input modalities, such as HDR images with depth images, 
and the fusion of multiple camera streams. It is very likely that the work will also involve 
the application and adaptation of machine learning algorithms.
The successful candidate could build on previous work we have done in our group in this area, 
for instance, a 3D model of the human hand that exposes its large variability, 
and many other software components.

Candidates should have an excellent Master’s degree (or equivalent) in computer science, 
or in a related discipline such as physics, mathematics, etc. Ideally, you have specialized in 
real-time computer vision. You should have good knowledge about applied mathematical methods, 
parallel programming (CUDA), and machine learning methods. 
Required skills are solid experience in C++ software development,
and a very good command of English (reading/writing/speaking).  
A good command of German is a plus.
Some knowledge about computer graphics and OpenGL is a bonus. 
The successful candidate will be highly self-motivated, passionate about their work, 
creative, and have good ability to work both independently as well as in a team in a multidisciplinary environment.
