Graz University of Technology - PhD Positions in Confluence of Vision and Graphics


Doctoral Program
Confluence of Vision and Graphics

at Graz University of Technology

PhD Positions

The goal of this recently established FWF doctoral program "Confluence
of Vision and Graphics" is to educate highly talented PhD students in
the interdisciplinary field of computer vision AND computer graphics.
Though both fields rely on the same physical and mathematical
principles and on a common set of representations, they mainly differ
in how these representations are built. Traditionally these two fields
have been treated as separate academic discipline. Exploiting the
commonalities between vision and graphics turns out to be a
scientifically profitable endeavor which is the goal of the doctoral
program. Typical application areas for confluence of vision and graphics are
projector-camera systems, image based modeling and rendering,
image-guided therapy and augmented reality.

The proposed educational program will ensure that the students will be
trained to become future leading scientists, who will face the
challenges of research excellence in the interdisciplinary area of
graphics and vision, academic leadership, and social competence as a
member of a particular research group as well as being a part of the
global research network.

We are looking for highly talented and motivated PhD students that are
willing to do their PhD within this doctoral program. Prospective
applicants should demonstrate an above-average academic record and a
solid background in applied mathematics and/or computer science.
Experience in computer vision and/or computer graphics is a definite
plus.  The successful applicant will furthermore be motivated and able
to conduct research independently, as well as collaborate effectively
with other members of a doctoral program.

Funding  for  the  Ph.D.  student  position is available immediately, for a
period  of 3 years.

Prospective applicants should submit:

- A detailed CV outlining the scientific background and research

- Copy of academic record

- Two names for reference

- TOEFL or equivalent evidence of English-speaking skills

- Any supporting materials (MS thesis, publications, etc.)

Please submit in electronic or hard copy by Feb. 27. 2007 to

Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision

Inffeldgasse 16 2. OG
A-8010 Graz, AUSTRIA

A number of candidates will be invited for interviews where they can
meet the professors of the doctoral program to discuss in detail
project objectives and perspectives.
