PhD Positions in Image Processing / Bildverarbeitung
The research will focus on developing new image processing methods, based on artificial intelligence, for image segmentation and object detection in high-throughput 3D microscopy data. The data acquisition and data analysis will be done in close collaboration with molecular biologists and physicists in our research group, to answer fundamental scientific questions about how pathogenic bacteria build antibiotic-resistant 3D communities called “biofilms”. The group has excellent computational facilities, data storage, and image acquisition facilities to provide an optimal environment for image processing. A Masters degree in physics, computer science, mathematics, or a related discipline is required for these positions. The particular direction of the PhD projects will depend on the skills and interests of the PhD students.
More details about the research group of Prof. Dr. Knut Drescher can be found at http://drescherlab.org
Successful applicants for the PhD positions can also become members of the (more biology-oriented) International Max Planck Research School for Environmental, Cellular and Molecular Microbiology (IMPRS-MIC; http://www.imprs-microbiology.mpg.de).
