ref­er­ence code: WA 41/18
pay grade E 14 TV-L Ber­lin (100 %)

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.

Work­ing field:

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
machine learn­ing

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.

Please send your applic­a­tion, quot­ing the ref­er­ence code WA 41/18, includ­ing CV in tab­u­lar form and all rel­ev­ant doc­u­ments by Septem­ber 23rd, 2018 (date of receipt) to
