After his Ph.D. he joined the Computer Vision Group at the University of Bonn as a postdoctoral researcher. From October 2007 to October 2008 he headed the Intelligent Systems Group at the University of Dresden as a temporary faculty member. After two years as a postdoctoral fellow in the Computer Vision Group of Jitendra Malik at U.C. Berkeley he moved to the University of Freiburg, where he is heading the Computer Vision Group. Prof. Brox is associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence and the Image and Vision Computing journal. He was/is an area chair of ICCV 2011, ACCV 2014 and ECCV 2014, and reviews for several funding organizations.
