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 post-doctoral
research position (f/m). The position is offered at the earliest possible date and will be a fixed-term contract for two years with the option to be extended.
In the area of clothing simulation, research and application questions of garment scanning, ge-ometric modelling and visualisation, as well as the simulation and animation of clothing worn on the human body are investigated. A team of six to eight people will work on model¬ing, simulation and visualisation in the context of 3D fit analysis.
The following tasks are relevant for the geometric modelling of garments for simulation and visualisation:
model-based geometric reconstruction of textiles from 3D measurement data
algorithmic detection of seams for geometric modelling
conversion of the geometry into problem-specific data structures for the
numerical simulation, as well as interactive manipulation and visualisation
fast collision detection during deformation and fitting
removal of unwanted ambient light effects from measurements
development of innovative reconstruction concepts based on methods of
We expect communication and teamwork skills, creativity, as well as a high degree of in-dependence and commitment. We offer a challenging professional environment with ex¬cellent 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 in-ternational level are our goal. Participation in international and national conferences is welcome and possible.
PhD in computer science, mathematics, physics
very good knowledge and skills in software development (C++, Python)
experience in several of the following areas: Image processing, computer graphics, ge-ometrical modelling, computer-aided design
interest in the use of machine learning methods
willingness and ability to analyse 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.
