The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tuebingen is looking for a student research assistant/HiWi (studentische/wissenschaftliche Hilfskraft) who will be able to work for a maximum of 20 hours per week/83 hours a month for up to six months. We are seeking someone with experience programming GPUs, preferably on mobile devices. We have a new deep neural network for image motion analysis and your job would be to port this to a mobile GPU. In this position you will gain experience with convolutional neural networks and optical flow estimation.
The Perceiving Systems Department is focused on uncovering the fundamental mathematical and computational principles underlying this process. This means understanding the statistics of the world (its shape, motion, material properties, etc.), modeling the imaging process (including optical blur, motion blur, noise, discretization), and devising algorithms to convert light measurements into information about the structure of the world.
What we are looking for
- Applicants must be located in the Tuebingen area and must be matriculated as students at a German university, preferably with a Bachelor’s degree in a field related to computer science.
- Experience with GPU programming
- Experience with Android programming
- Very good communication skills in English
What we offer
The MPI for Intelligent Systems is one of the world's leading research institutions for machine learning, computer vision and robotics, studying the concepts of intelligence and autonomy on every conceptual scale. We offer an interdisciplinary, open research environment among international staff, with connections to institutions within and outside of Germany. The post is ideally suited for students looking to extend their scientific and cultural horizons. Students without a Bachelor’s degree will earn € 9.79 per hour. Students holding a Bachelor’s degree will be paid € 11.29 per hour. Multiple positions are available until filled or no longer needed.
The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
