an immediately available 3-year (= 2-year + option for 1-year extension)
PhD Position (Doktorandenstipendium/ DFG-scholarship).
The focus of our Biometrics research group (www.stochastik.math.uni-goettingen.de)
at the Institute for Mathematical Stochastics (IMS) is on the development of novel models
and methods for fingerprint recognition. Dissertation projects can interdisciplinary
combine the potentials of stochastics, statistics, numerics and computer science for
providing new solutions to exciting challenges in the coinciding areas of biometrics,
pattern recognition and image processing.
Essential qualifications are a master degree, diploma or a comparable degree in
mathematics, computer science or a related scientific field.
– Good skills in written and spoken English
– Programming skills (e.g. Java, C++, Matlab, R)
– Experience in mathematical or statistical imaging
Background in geometry, pattern recognition or image processing is advantageous. We
expect creativity and independence, the ability to work and communicate within a team of
scientists from different disciplines.
The scholarship of the DFG Research Training Group 1023 are based on the support rate
granted by the DFG and amount to EUR 1365,- per month with a monthly supplement of
The advancement of equality at the IMS goes without saying; in particular, we are striving
to increase the percentage of women in the science sector. Severely disabled persons with
equal qualifications will be considered preferentially within the framework of legal
