Prof. Radu Timofte is a 2022 winner of the prestigious Humboldt Professorship for Artificial Intelligence Award. Prof. Radu Timofte also leads the Augmented Perception Group at ETH Zurich.

Depending on the position, the successful candidate will focus on a subset of the following

Research Topics

  • • deep learning
  • • computational photography
  • • domain translation
  • • learned image/video compression
  • • image/video super-resolution
  • • learning paradigms
  • • image/video understanding
  • • augmented and mixed reality
  • • edge inference and mobile AI

The tasks will involve designing, developing, and testing novel ideas in cutting-edge research, as well as coordinating and conducting data collection for their evaluation.

The successful candidate will conduct research on deep learning machines and a cluster with hundreds of GPUs. The successful candidate will also collaborate with industry.


  • Master's degree in computer science, electrical engineering, physics or applied mathematics/statistics.
  • Good programming knowledge and experience with Python / C++ / MATLAB.
  • Interest, prior knowledge and experience in one or more of the following is a plus: computer vision, deep learning, machine learning, image processing.
  • Enthusiasm for leading-edge research, team spirit, and capability of independent problem-solving.
  • Fluent written and spoken English is a must.


The positions are open immediately, fully funded, the salaries of the doctoral students and postdocs are competitive on the German scales TV-L E13 and E14, up to 60k euros per year, before taxes.
