NLP for Visual-to-Language Models

In Faculty 6, a third-party scholarship on the topic of "NLP for Visual-to-Language Models" is to be granted for a limited period of three years, starting at the earliest on 01.03.2024. A later start of the scholarship is possible. The purpose of the grant is to pursue a doctoral degree. The legal basis is the general regulations for the granting of scholarships for the preparation of doctoral studies at the University of Wuppertal (Amtl. Mitteilungen No. 61 of 20.04.2015, see here) in the version of the amendment regulations (Amtl. Mitteilung No. 77 of 09.07.2015, see here).

Graduates of electrical engineering, computer science (or related) or industrial engineering are encouraged to apply. Documents to be submitted:

  • Application letter incl. the possible starting date
  • Curriculum vitae, if applicable with references and certificates of further education
  • Copy of proof of university degree (certified or original)
  • Proof of any professional activity
  • A study certificate must be submitted in case of scholarship award.

The awarding committee, consisting of Dr. Lutz Roese-Koerner, APTIV Services Deutschland GmbH and Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tobias Meisen, will decide on the scholarship award. Expert reports do not have to be submitted.

Applications should be sent with the above documents to: Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Fakultät 6, Herrn Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tobias Meisen, 42097 Wuppertal.

Applications sent electronically cannot be considered.

Women will be given preferential consideration in cases of equal suitability, qualifications and professional performance, provided that they are underrepresented in the organizational unit and provided that reasons relating to the person of a competitor do not prevail. The rights of severely disabled persons to be given preferential consideration in the event of equal suitability remain unaffected.

The scholarship does not constitute an employment or service relationship. The payments are not remuneration for work as defined by § 14 SGB IV (German Social Security Code, SGB IV). The scholarship is therefore not subject to social security contributions.

Application deadline: 29.01.2024
