Dear colleagues,

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 
FEDER funds.

** 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, 
cultural heritage).

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 
prior experience.

** 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 
October 19):

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 
the project

4. [Optional] Recommendation letter(s)

to Carlos Andujar (andujar at cs.upc.edu). Please quote "PhD position" in 
the subject.

Selected candidates will be asked (and assisted) to fill the formal 
application at the Spanish Ministry web page.

Would you be so kind to distribute this offer among potential candidates?


Carlos Andujar
Associate Professor
