We are continuously looking for talented researchers to join CGV. We regularly hire PhD students and researchers to join our research and teaching activities, based on availability. We also offer undergraduate research internships with our institute.
Date: June 22, 2018
The Institute for Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization at Graz University of Technology (TU Graz), Austria participates since 2012 in a joint PhD program with the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore.
Currently, we offer a 3 year PhD Position on this joint program at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualisation, with a focus on research in Geometric Modeling, 3D Computer Graphics and Novel Applications in Visual Computing. The PhD includes a one year stay at NTU in Singapore in the second year, while year one and three will be spend at TU Graz, Austria. The PhD will be dual degree, that is, the degree will be both, from TU Graz and NTU.
The Topic can be defined in accordance with the applicant's skills and experience. Topics of interest are in the field of subdivision surfaces, isogeometric analysis and wider fields of geometry processing.
Of particular interest is the creation of subdivision control meshes from point clouds. The evolution of 3D scanning devices and innovation in computer processing power and storage capacity has sparked a revolution in producing big point-cloud datasets. We aim to circumvent problems involving big point-cloud data sets by converting the data to an efficient mathematical representation, namely subdivision surfaces. The control meshes should be suitable for design and analysis. This research can take a range of directions depending on the skill of the PhD student. The research has multidisciplinary aspects drawing from computer science, mathematics, engineering and physics.
We are seeking an excellent and highly motivated PhD student interested in the ﬁelds of Computer Graphics, Geometry Processing, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Simulation and Analysis.
A master degree in applied/computational mathematics or a closely related ﬁeld is required with excellent grades. The applicant ideally has a good understanding of geometric modelling and processing, and/or ﬁnite element methods. Due to the computational nature of the project, programming skills (C++/Matlab) are also required. Additionally, some background in mesh processing (and/or computer aided geometry design) will be highly desirable.
To apply, please send your CV, academic credentials and a letter of motivation to Ass. Prof. Ursula H. Augsdorfer at u.augsdorfernoSpam@cgv.tugraz.at
