15 PhD Positions in Computer Graphics

Description

Eight organisations from all across Europe are looking for 15 Early-Stage Researchers in the field of Computer Graphics, for the PRIME (Predictive Rendering In Manufacture and Engineering) project. The individual research topics can be found on the project webpage.

In addition to a high profile academic consortium (7 european universities involved), the network can offer students a number of prominent end users of accurate rendering technology as industrial partners. Having the likes of IKEA, Procter & Gamble, Weta Digital, Zeiss and Adobe all together in one project offers unique opportunities to see multiple real world usage cases for predictive rendering technology in action.

15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in total will be hired for the duration of their three year participation in the project, and will be in charge of their training plans. Seven of the eight beneficiaries are world-class universities and academic institutions, who will enrol the hired ESRs in their Ph.D. programmes. The eight beneficiary, Luxion, is a company in Denmark, where the Ph.D. training will be overseen by the nearby Danish Technical University, which is also one of the seven academic beneficiaries.

The goal of this project is to develop skills and protocols needed for industrial usage of Predictive Rendering (PR) technologies – image synthesis which delivers results that one can actually rely on to be visually accurate. Application areas of such systems are in such diverse areas as product design, architecture, sensor system calibration, training of autonomous vehicle systems, movie VFX and manufacturing control. Goal of the ITN is to collectively train young researchers in this promising, future-oriented and research-driven application area. Each PhD student has an industrially relevant cutting-edge research topic.

Motivated and creative candidates should hold a Master´s degree in either Computer Science, Mathematics, or Physics and have a solid background in computer graphics. Excellent programming skills and fluent English are essential. You may apply even if you are already a Ph.D. candidates elsewhere – we can establish a collaboration with your current advisor. Start date is as soon as possible.

Applicants from all over the world are welcome if meeting the eligibility criteria and formal requirements.
