Ph.D. Position – Photorealistic Rendering for Deep Learning and Online Reconstruction

One Ph.D. position (supervision by Profs Niessner and Westermann) is available at our chair in the area of photorealistic rendering for deep learning and online reconstruction


Research in this project includes the development of photorealistic realtime rendering algorithms that can be used in deep learning applications for scene understanding, and for high-quality scalable rendering of point scans from depth sensors and RGB stereo image reconstruction.

If you are interested in applying, you should have a strong background in computer science, i.e., efficient algorithms and data structures, and GPU programming, have experience implementing C/C++ algorithms, and you should be excited to work on state-of-the-art research in the 3D computer graphics. Good English skills are also a plus.
The position is a full time position, with payment and benefits according the German public service positions (TV-L E13, 100%).
