Vacancies

PhDs and Postdocs in the areas of Computer Graphics and Visualization

You will find concrete positions on this page.
Nonetheless, we are always looking for motivated PhDs and Postdocs in the areas of Computer Graphics and Visualization.
Precisely, we are interested in candidates from the areas of rendering, alternative representations, and visualization, geometric modelling.

For more information or questions, please contact Marloes van der Krogt-van Lier (Marloes.vanderKrogt@tudelft.nl).

Postdoc: Declarative Modelling of Narrative Worlds
Position description:
This position is integrated in the VESP project, which studies how effective an online guided self-therapy system could be for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) patients. This research focuses on methods for enabling patients to easily re-create a personal experience within a suitable virtual environment. This project aims at investigating how declarative and procedural modelling methods can automate the generation of such narrative worlds.
The generic methods developed will help users create a virtual world that supports enacting an input story. A proof-of-concept system based on such mixed-initiative methods will be developed, enabling authors to customise their own narrative world version for a given story they like.
We will investigate (1) how the use of rich object semantics can steer the creation of a narrative world; (2) how to create and interpret a story’s plan, and to materialise it in a narrative world layout; and (3) how to make procedural techniques accessible to non-technical users.

Position requirements:
We are looking for a candidate who meets the following requirements:

  • You are a talented and enthusiastic researcher, with a passion for game technology, computational storytelling and (serious) gaming.
  • You have a PhD in one of the related fields (e.g. computer graphics, procedural content generation, human-computer interaction).
  • You are an excellent scientist with excellent publication record.
  • You have excellent programming skills in languages such as C#, C++ and Python.
  • You have good communication skills.
  • You have a creative mind, are an excellent player in a multi-disciplinary team and are able/willing to co-supervise BSc and MSc CS students related to this project.
  • You have good command of the English language (knowledge of Dutch is not required).

 

PhD: High-Performance 3D Light Distribution Simulations
Position description:
This project is embedded in the context of a larger consortium optimizing the illumination condition in greenhouses. The main objective or our work package is to produce novel solutions for a high-performance ray tracer involving visualization and interaction possibilities.
We will investigate several subtasks including a new hierarchical approach and alternative representations for visibility and transport queries. Further, we will extend our work to a multi-core environment and investigate progressive rendering solutions. Finally, we will develop specialized illustration techniques to support light analysis.

Position requirements:
We are looking for a candidate who meets the following requirements:

  • You are a talented and enthusiastic researcher.
  • You have experience with or a strong background in computer graphics, and image processing. Preferably you finished a master in the speciality of Computer Graphics in Computer Science, additionally, you might qualify with a diploma in (Applied) Mathematics, (Applied) Physics or Electrical Engineering if you have graphics experience.
  • You have excellent programming skills (C++, OpenGL…).
  • You have good communicative skills
  • You are creative, ambitious, hard working and persistent.
  • You have good command of the English language (knowledge of Dutch is not required)

 

Postdoc: Creative Computer Graphics
Position description:
In this work, we plan to investigate solutions for creative content production to support the creation of high quality visual content by novice users. The work will combine aspects of computer graphics, perception, and computational photography. The idea is to rely on perceptual insights to improve the outcome of a creation process. The postdoc will be able to investigate several projects, ranging from computational photography, over stereo perception, to interactive style control and transfer.

Position requirements:
We are looking for a candidate who meets the following requirements:

* You are a talented and enthusiastic researcher.

* You are an excellent scientist with excellent publication record.
* You have familiar with C++, OpenGL, and GPU programming.
* You have good communication skills
* You are a good teamplayer and able/willing to supervise bachelor, PhD, and Master students related to this project.
* You have good command of the English language (knowledge of Dutch is not required).
