caesar is a neuroethology institute located in Bonn that studies how the collective activity of the vast numbers of interconnected neurons in the brain gives rise to the plethora of animal behaviors. Our research spans a large range of scales from the nano-scale imaging of brain circuitry, to large-scale functional imaging of brain circuitry during behavior, to the quantification of natural animal behaviors.
The lab of Dr. Johannes Seelig, a Max Planck Research Group, investigates the dynamics of neural circuits underlying behavior in the fruit fly Drosophila. We are looking for a
Student Assistant for image processing and deep learning (m/f/d)
We are interested in using deep learning for analyzing and classifying the behavior of fruit flies from video recordings. The task requires programming (Python) and familiarity with image processing and deep learning frameworks (such as OpenCV, Tensorflow, Keras, or Pytorch). The project will include behavior experiments and designing a pipeline for collection and processing of large video datasets. An interest in real-time image processing and the control of experimental hardware would be an asset. We offer state of the art computing hardware for deep learning and experimental equipment, and an exciting project at the interface of artificial and biological neural networks.
- You will work flexible number of hours per week on an image processing project using deep learning.
- We are looking for students in computer science, physics, engineering or related fields with a background and interest in computer vision and deep learning.
What we offer:
- Flexible working hours (weekly working time max. 20 hrs/week, full-time employment possible during the semester break)
- Pleasant working atmosphere
- The employment is paid on an hourly basis with 10,91 Euro (Bachelor's student) or
12,52 Euro (Master's student)
