The Zuse Insti­tute Ber­lin (ZIB) is a non-uni­versity research insti­tute under pub­lic law of the state of Ber­lin. The divi­sion "Math­em­at­ics for Life and Mater­i­als Sci­ences" is offer­ing a
research pos­i­tion. The pos­i­tion is offered start­ing at the earli­est pos­sible date and will be a fixed-term con­tract for 2 years with the option to be exten­ded.

Work­ing field:

Together with a lead­ing com­pany in the fash­ion industry, the pos­sib­il­it­ies of innov­at­ive fit ana­lysis for gar­ments will be invest­ig­ated. In close cooper­a­tion with a R&D team of the indus­trial part­ner, aspects of the geo­met­ric mod­el­ing of gar­ments, mod­el­ing of mater­ial prop­er­ties, numer­ical sim­u­la­tion of deform­a­tion as well as the real­istic depic­tion of tex­tiles and visu­al­iz­a­tion of fit prop­er­ties will be worked on at ZIB. The task of the present pos­i­tion is the visu­al­iz­a­tion of sim­u­lated gar­ments and fit-prop­er­ties; this includes the
  • eval­u­ation of vari­ous open source frame­works for high-qual­ity ren­der­ing,
  • imple­ment­a­tion of meth­ods for photoreal­istic ren­der­ing of sim­u­lated cloth­ing on given ana­tom­ies util­iz­ing pho­to­graphed tex­tures and empir­ic­ally determ­ined optical prop­er­ties,
  • and the devel­op­ment of new meth­ods for the visu­al­iz­a­tion of fit­ting prop­er­ties.

We expect com­mu­nic­a­tion and team­work skills, cre­ativ­ity, as well as a high degree of inde­pend­ence and com­mit­ment. We offer a chal­len­ging pro­fes­sional envir­on­ment with excel­lent equip­ment and a friendly work­ing atmo­sphere, as well as oppor­tun­it­ies and sup­port for fur­ther qual­i­fic­a­tion for sci­ent­ists at all stages of their careers. Sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions at the highest inter­na­tional level are our goal. Par­ti­cip­a­tion in inter­na­tional and national con­fer­ences is wel­come and pos­sible.


  • mas­ter's degree or sim­ilar in com­puter sci­ence, math­em­at­ics, or phys­ics
  • good know­ledge and skills in soft­ware devel­op­ment (C++, Python)
  • very good know­ledge and exper­i­ence in com­puter graph­ics or data visu­al­iz­a­tion
  • will­ing­ness and abil­ity to ana­lyze and pro­duce sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions
  • good com­mand of spoken and writ­ten Eng­lish

How to ap­ply:

The can­did­ature of women is encour­aged. Since women are under­rep­res­en­ted in inform­a­tion tech­no­logy, ZIB is try­ing to increase the pro­por­tion of women in this research area.

Per­sons with dis­ab­il­it­ies will be given pref­er­ence, when equally qual­i­fied.

Please send your applic­a­tion, quot­ing the ref­er­ence code WA 35/18, includ­ing CV in tab­u­lar form and all rel­ev­ant doc­u­ments by July 29th, 2018 (date of receipt) to
