  Dr Alexander Wilkie  Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic

We are pleased to announce open PhD position for suitably qualified and highly motivated candidates in the PRIME (Predictive Rendering In Manufacture and Engineering) project.

The successfull candidate will become a part of an EU funded research network for PhD students in Computer graphics where eight world-class universities are involved and will undertake some international secondments at the field´s world-leading companies.

About the position

This PhD position is about developing efficient light transport simulation algorithms for volumetric materials used in 3D printing, and about the inclusion of fluorescence in modern rendering technology. The optical effect of fluorescence is currently neglected in most rendering software, but it plays a significant role in the appearance of certain materials. The research undertaken by this ESR will be both fundamental research about inclusion of fluorescence in modern rendering technology, as well as work with appearance measurement, and the trialling of such rendering capabilities in actual industrial workflows.

Employment Details

Pay is standardised by the EU, and is ample by local standards. Employment duration within PRIME is 36 months. Candidates should be be available as soon as possible,

About the research group in Prague

The Computer Graphics Group (CGG) at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic is led by Alexander Wilkie and Elena Šikudová, and currently hosts several PhD students and PostDocs. The team is very international and uses English as its working language. Topic-wise, the group’s interests are spread across realistic image synthesis, appearance fabrication, sky models, and computer vision. We are proud of our closely knit team environment, and our far-reaching network of collaborators in academia and industry. We are also privileged to be housed in a magnificent historical building right underneath Castle Hill in the historical centre of Prague.
