Scientist (PhD Student) in Image Analysis

The Image Analysis group of the Molecular Genetics department at IPK Gatersleben deals with the development of computational methods for derivation of quantitative traits of crop plants from multimodal and multidimensional image data acquired in high-throughput with multispectral 2D and 3D camera systems. To support our team, we are currently looking for a qualified researcher (PhD Student).

Your tasks:
  • You will develop software solutions for processing and analysis of multimodal and multidimensional image data from high-throughput plant phenotyping experiments such as time-series of multispectral 2D and 3D images.

  • You will present results at scientific meetings and write journal articles.

Your qualifications and skills:
  • You have a degree in informatics, mathematics, physics or similar educational background.
  • You have good programming skills in one or more scientific programming languages (i.e., Matlab/Octave, Java, C/C++, Phyton, shell).
  • You have experience working with signal/image processing, computer vision, spatial-temporal modeling and/or machine learning applications.
  • Previous experience in plant image analysis or modelling is a plus.

You fit to us:
  • You are a passionate software developer.
  • You like to work in a team and to reach goals together.
  • You like to work in an interdisciplinary environment on the boundary between computer and biological sciences.
