The Institute for Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization participates since 2012 in the joint PhD programme, with a focus on research in Geometric Modeling, Visualization and Novel Applications in Visual Computing. We here describe our ongoing and future work. For more information, please contact the Principal Investigators:
For more general information on the dual degree program, please see here.
This PhD program is a joint collaboration between Graz University of Technology in Austria and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. The program offers opportunities to promising scientists and scholars to foster interactions between the two world class universities in the area of interactive digital media. The principal areas of focus are 3D Graphics, Realtime Rendering, Virtual & Augmented Reality, Visual Analytics, Medical Computing, and Human-Computer Interaction.
The program aims to support young promising scientists by offering international career experience as a starting point for a strong research career:
We invite applications for the open PhD position within this program at the Institute of Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization:
You will be working on novel applications in Visual Computing. The topic will be defined in accordance with the applicant's skills and experience. Topics of interest are in the fields of 3D Computer Graphics, Geometry Processing, Information Visualization, Visual Analytics, Digital Libraries, and Virtual Reality Technology.
We are seeking excellent and highly motivated PhD students who are interested in Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization, including the topics defined above. A master degree in computer science or a closely related field is required. The applicant should have good programming skills, and ideally has previous experience and a good understanding of the fundamental concepts of computer graphics and/or knowledge visualization.
You will be part of a research program, which will provide you with an international research background, conducted at two top ranked universities.
You will spend your first and third year of research at Graz Technical University (TU Graz), as part of the research team at the Institute of Computer Graphics and Knowledge Visualization (CGV). Our institute is located at the Faculty of Information Technology and Biomedical Engineering, a young and vibrant faculty founded in 2004. The CGV was founded a year later and is part of the Visual Computing research cluster in Graz, presenting an excellent scientific environment at large. You can find details on our current research topic here.
Working at CGV in a nutshell:
The second year of this PhD position will be spent at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore at the Doctoral School of Computer Science.
