The Max Planck Center for Visual Computing and Communications offers young scientists in information technology the opportunity to develop their own research program addressing important problems in areas such as image communication, computer graphics, geometric computing, imaging systems, computer vision, human machine interface, distributed multimedia architectures, multimedia networking, and 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.
Who should apply
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 post-doc stay abroad and must have demonstrated their outstanding research potential and ability to successfully lead a research group.
The Max Planck Center is an equal opportunity employer and women are encouraged to apply.

Reviewing of applications will commence on January 31, 2011. The final deadline is March 31, 2011. Applicants should submit their CV, copies of their school and university reports, list of publications, reprints of five selected publications, names of 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:
