Jobs and Theses

The VSI lab collaborates with leading international companies in the fields of driver assistance, autonomous driving, and traffic surveillance, including major automobile manufacturers and suppliers. Our research projects deal with intelligent vehicles, modern video sensor data processing & interpretation and advanced road infrastructure.

For our ongoing research projects, we are always looking for a talented and motivated new member for our research team. Key tasks in the position comprise the theoretical analysis, development and empirical evaluation of real-time methods for processing of monocular and multi-monocular cameras in the context of environment perception. Present projects focus on processing of image sequences to obtain information about the geometrical and semantical structure of the static environment and about moving objects (motion estimation, 3D reconstruction, semantic classification, etc.). In addition to developing novel successful approaches in classical computer vision, we put increasing emphasis on latest developments in machine learning (deep learning and convolutional neural networks) in ongoing projects.

Research associate / PhD student positions

Right now, we do not have any open positions.

Please note: We do not have positions for internships from overseas, even if they are externally funded.

Bachelor / Master / Student assistant positions

We offer various topics in the area of computer vision for driver assistance, autonomous driving and traffic surveillance. Below is a list of possible Bachelor and Master thesis topics. If you are interested in this area or have any other ideas, please don’t hesitate to visit or contact us directly.

Application guidelines

  • We do not have positions for internships from overseas, even if they are externally funded.
  • A seriously meant application does always address directly the responsible person(s) at the target institution and specifies clearly in the cover letter in which sense the research work performed at the target institution is related to the applicants interests and his/her profile. A good application always refers specifically to the open positions and projects advertised on the target institutions web site.
  • A serious application consists of (preferrably) one file in a format that can be read on all computer platforms (strong preference for Adobe PDF). A complete application contains:
    • a cover letter that directly and clearly shows that is has been specifically written for the target institution, not only the name of the recipient and the institution name plugged into a standard text
    • potentially a separate resume of scientific interests and profile
    • a CV
    • scanned-in versions of relevant certificates (in English or German)
    • a list of publications (if applicable)

    The attachment should not be larger than some few MBs, or should give indications how to obtain supplementary material (e.g. if the scanned certificates and/or publications are large documents).

  • If you send your documents, put them into a single PDF file named according to the scheme YYYMMDD-Name-Documents.pdf, inserting the current date and your name.

Shortsightedness in preparing an application, and overlooking information that the target institution clearly and explicitly provides for applicants is usually not a good recommendation for an applicant who aims at a Ph.D. student position or similar, where diligence and careful work is of utmost importance.
