PhD : Human-Centric AI for Medical Time-Critical Segmentation
This Ph.D. position focusses on the visualization and interaction techniques that afford an effective combination of artificial intelligence and human expert knowledge/skills in segmentation and detection tasks for head-and-neck cancer proton therapy.

Application procedure:  deadline 31st May 2020


PhD: Material Appearance Modeling and Acquisition
The activities will focus on improving appearance acquisition methods and/or enhancing appearance representation. We have a special interest in developing lightweight methods for appearance capture (using only off-the-shelf devices, for example). Material appearance touches many important aspects of modern computer graphics, such as photorealistic rendering, content creation, virtual replica and prototyping, among others. Nevertheless, precisely and efficiently capturing and representing materials is still a challenge, and new and innovative research ideas are needed to push the state-of-the-art of this exciting area forward. For more information please contact Dr. Ricardo Marroquim.


PhD+Postdoc: Multi-view Rendering
The classic setting of a standard screen, a compute device, and a single user is about to change, with the advent of many-view rendering scenarios. Stereoscopic, virtual-reality, augmented reality, multi-view, and soon light-field and holographic displays (to provide correct depth perception) enter the mass market and require many images of the same content. Similarly, other applications, such as remote-rendering with large crowds operating low-performance devices, or complex light transport phenomena (see image) lead to structurally similar challenges. This project addresses the topic of many-view rendering via three research lines with high potential for scientific and technological impact. First, we want to identify and reduce recurring computations. Second, given that the user interprets the image, we aim at reducing costs by exploiting perceptual limitations. Finally, we will conceive novel design tools to build efficient content for many-view scenarios.

Postdoc: Creative Computer Graphics
In this work, we plan to investigate solutions for creative content production to support the creation of high quality visual content by novice users. The work will combine aspects of computer graphics, perception, and computational photography. The idea is to rely on perceptual insights to improve the outcome of a creation process. The postdoc will be able to investigate several projects, ranging from computational photography, over stereo perception, to interactive style control and transfer.
