We are pleased to announce open PhD positions in the PRIME (Predictive Rendering In Manufacture and Engineering) project.
PRIME brings some of the main European actors in the field of rendering research together. In addition to a high profile academic consortium (7 universities involved), the network can offer students a number of prominent end users of accurate rendering technology as industrial partners. Having the likes of IKEA, Procter & Gamble, Weta Digital, Zeiss and Adobe all together in one project offers unique opportunities to see multiple real world usage cases for predictive rendering technology in action.
These eight institutions will in total hire 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) for the duration of their three year participation in the project, and will be in charge of their training plans. Seven of the eight beneficiaries are world-class universities and academic institutions, who will enrol the hired ESRs in their Ph.D. programmes. The eight beneficiary, Luxion, is a company in Denmark, where the Ph.D. training will be overseen by the nearby Danish Technical University, which is also one of the seven academic beneficiaries.
Motivated and creative candidates should hold a Master´s degree in either Computer Science, Mathematics, or Physics and have a solid background in computer graphics. Excellent programming skills and fluent English are essential. You may apply even if you are already a Ph.D. candidates elsewhere – we can establish a collaboration with your current advisor. Start date is as soon as possible.
The goal of this project is to develop skills and protocols needed for industrial usage of Predictive Rendering (PR) technologies – image synthesis which delivers results that one can actually rely on to be visually accurate. Application areas of such systems are in such diverse areas as product design, architecture, sensor system calibration, training of autonomous vehicle systems, movie VFX and manufacturing control. Goal of the ITN is to collectively train young researchers in this promising, future-oriented and research-driven application area. Each PhD student has an industrially relevant cutting-edge research topic.
Please refer to PRIME website and apply for the position accordingly:
Initial hiring deadline was 12th October 2020. Hiring remains OPEN for the positions until they are marked as HIRED on the project site.
