[Ieee_vis_open_positions] PhD position on Computer Graphics at UPC-Barcelona Tech (DL: October 19)
virtual at cs.upc.edu
Thu Oct 11 09:44:06 CEST 2018
The ViRVIG Research Center (http://virvig.eu/) at UPC (Universitat
Politècnica de Catalunya) is looking for a new PhD student in Computer
The research is embedded in the 3D4LIFE project, "Visualization,
modeling, simulation and interaction with 3D models. Applications in
life sciences and urban environments", funded by Spanish Ministry and
** Project **
The 3D4LIFE project focuses on large models stemming mainly from two
fields: life sciences and urban modeling. In life sciences we address
three distinct sources of information: medical imaging devices
(diagnosis and training), molecular simulations in pharmacology, and
biomechanical data. Concerning urban modeling, we focus on the
generation of plausible models (geometric models, simulation of crowd
behaviors) from multiple data sources. Despite the transversal nature of
the project, the specific objectives are conceived to facilitate the
development of 3D applications meant to improve the quality of life of
the people, both in their health (clinical diagnosis, simulations in
sports biomechanics, design of new drugs) and in their immediate
surroundings (crowd behavior simulation, sustainable urban design,
The candidate will contribute to the modeling, visualization, simulation
or interaction problems in the context of the project. The specific
topic for the successful candidate will be decided according to his/her
** Profile **
Candidates should have a background in Computer Science or related
fields (MSc level), with a strong interest in Computer Graphics.
Candidates should have demonstrable experience in 3D programming and
excellent knowledge of both written and spoken English.
** Offer **
The position will be available after the publication of the resolution
granting the aid, which is expected by *April-May 2019*.
The candidate will join the ViRVIG research group at UPC-Barcelona,
which offers a great opportunity for high-quality Computer
Graphics research. The position is funded for up to four years.
** How to apply **
To apply please prepare and submit the following information (deadline
1. Curriculum Vitae, including a list of your publications (if any)
2. Academic record
3. A cover letter stating your research interests and how they relate to
4. [Optional] Recommendation letter(s)
to Carlos Andujar (andujar at cs.upc.edu). Please quote "PhD position" in
Selected candidates will be asked (and assisted) to fill the formal
application at the Spanish Ministry web page.
