We are looking for motivated MScs and PhDs in the areas of Computer Graphics and Visualization.

More specifically, we are interested in candidates from the areas of sketch-based interfaces and modeling (SBIM)/geometric modelling, non-photorealistic rendering (NPR), illustrative visualization (iVis), and visual analytics to work on the following project:


Illustrative Graphics & Visualization Program (phase #4):

ILLUSTRATIVE GRAPHICS & VISUALIZATION FRAMEWORK FOR
GEOLOGICAL-INSPIRED CONCEPTUAL MODEL DEVELOPMENT


Research outcomes are extendable to a broader number of scientific and engineering disciplines and applications requiring conceptual SBIM/NPR/IVis in the style of geology-inspired algorithms and methods – e.g., conceptual sketching and illustration of clinical pathology and observational biology, and morphogenetic modeling and analysis.

Position requirements for MSc Track:

  • Passion to work on research projects in one or more of the following areas: sketch-based interfaces and modeling (SBIM)/geometric modelling, non-photorealistic rendering (NPR), illustrative visualization (iVis), and visual analytics.
  • Experience with or background in computer graphics and visualization. Preferably with a BSc in Computer Science with introductory course(s) in Computer Graphics or Visualization. We will also consider if you have a BSc in Computational Modeling or (Applied) Mathematics with fundamental graphics/visualization coursework and/or experience.
  • Good experience with C++, OpenGL, Qt, and GPU programming.
  • Knowledge and/or experience on (scientific) illustration principles and techniques is a plus
  • Good communication skills
  • Ability to work well both independently and in a group
