Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems / International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS)Stuttgart
PhD program coordinator (f/m) (50% - 100%)
for the new International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS-IS).
IMPRS-IS brings together the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems with the nearby universities of Stuttgart and
Tübingen to form a highly interdisciplinary graduate school of internationally renowned faculty in the fields of machine
learning, computer vision, and robotics on large and small scales. IMPRS-IS will enroll 100 doctoral students over the next
six years, providing world-leading research opportunities and the ability for students to obtain a PhD degree in our unique
graduate program. The goal of the IMPRS-IS is to investigate and understand the organizing principles of artificially intelligent
systems that can successfully interact with complex environments. Such artificially intelligent systems that perceive, act, and
learn are rapidly becoming essential to society. Consequently, IMPRS-IS is a core element of Baden-Württemberg’s "Cyber Valley"
initiative that brings together key international partners from science and industry to accelerate
research and commercial development in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
