The Perceiving Systems department at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen is looking for a highly motivated visiting PhD student interested in computer vision and machine learning. The visit is supported by a scholarship of MPI for a duration of 6 months. The applicant must hold a Master's degree and should currently be enrolled in a PhD program at a university or research institution.
At the Perceiving Systems Department we are interested in building digital models of humans and clothing. Being able to parse clothing from different data modalities (4D scans, video or Kinect) is central to building such models and to perceive humans in the wild. The role of the student will be to infer human pose, shape and 3D garment geometry from video and Kinect data.
The conducted research is expected to highly impact both science as well as industry in the short and long term.
