About Us

Doing science together is both more motivating and more effective than working alone. Collaboration within our lab is the default, not the exception. We try to create an atmosphere that encourages informal discussions about science, exchange of ideas, getting and giving early feedback and makes everyone aware of other people’s projects. We also like to spend time together outside of the work environment regularly.


Although we are always looking for highly motivated and talented researchers, we get far more applications than we have positions available. If you’d like to join our team, please consider the following before sending an application.


We are currently looking for talented postdocs! Please send your application via our application form.

PhD students

We are always looking for talented PhD student candidates. We primarily recruit students through the doctoral program of the International Max Planck Research School for Intelligent Systems (IMPRS) or the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems (ELLIS). The application deadline is usually in November. We invite you to additionally send us your application via our application form. For questions please contact Çağatay Yıldız.

Internships, Lab Rotations, Bachelor or Master Thesis

As we get many requests, we can evaluate only a small fraction carefully. Generally, you should not expect a response. You can increase the chances of your application by carefully answering our application form.


If you have questions regarding applications, please contact Çağatay Yıldız.
