Junior Research Group Program
Published(376 days ago)
Deadline for applications(315 days ago)
Max-Planck-Institut für InformatikSaarbrücken, Stanford (Kalifornien)
The Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication (MPC-VCC) was established as a joint program by the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science (MPG)
and Stanford University in 2003 (http://www.mpc-vcc.org).
With this call the Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communication (MPC-VCC) invites applications for its
Junior Research Group Program
Our Junior Research Group program offers young scientists in information technology the opportunity to develop their own research program addressing important problems in areas such as
human machine interface
distributed multimedia architectures
visual media security.
The center includes an outstanding group of faculty members at Stanford's Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
Departments, the Max Planck Institute for Informatics, and Saarland University.
The program begins with a preparatory 1-2 year postdoc phase (Phase P) at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics,
followed by a two-year appointment at Stanford University (Phase I) as a visiting assistant professor, and then a position at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics as a
junior research group leader (Phase II). However, the program can be entered flexibly at each phase, commensurate with the experience of the applicant.
Applicants to the program must have completed an outstanding PhD. Exact duration of the preparatory postdoc
phase is flexible, but we typically expect this to be about 1-2 years. Applicants who completed their PhD in Germany may enter Phase I of the program directly. Applicants for
Phase II are expected to have completed a postdoc stay abroad and must have demonstrated their outstanding research potential and ability to successfully lead a research group.
Reviewing of applications will commence on 01 Jan 2019. The final deadline is 31 Jan 2019. Applicants should submit their CV, copies of their school and university reports, list
of publications, reprints of five selected publications, names of 3-5 references, a brief description of their previous research and a detailed description of the proposed research
project (including possible opportunities for collaboration with existing research groups at Saarbrücken and Stanford) to:
Prof. Dr. Hans-Peter Seidel
Max Planck Institute for Informatics,
Campus E 1 4, 66123 Saarbrücken, Germany;
The Max Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer, committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce, and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
