Research Fellow positions for project "Visual and Haptic Rendering in Co-Space"
http://www3. ntu.edu.sg/ home/assourin/ job.htm
The job is in the area of computer graphics, mathematics, geometry. This is a part of the NRF-MDA funded project entitled "Visual and Haptic Rendering in Co-Space" which commenced on 15 December 2008. The work will be carried out at the Centre for Advance Media Technologies (CAMTech), School of Computer Engineering of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The goal of the project is to propose an
efficient interoperable mathematical model defining geometry, visual appearance and tangible physical properties of virtual objects in shared Co-Space - 3D virtual shared space on the web. The object definitions must be small in size and invariant to the rendering platform used in Co-Space. The particular goals of the project include development of the fast interactive definitions by implicit and explicit functions, description of complex geometry using parametric partial differential equations, introduction of function-defined physical properties to objects in Co-Space, and development of several exemplar applications illustrating the usefulness of the proposed approach, including an ability to establish physical contact with
other party in Co-Space through haptic devices.
The project includes but not limited to the following tasks:
- Definition of complex shapes with implicit, parametric and explicit functions
- Parameterization and implicitization
- Definition of interactive shapes using partial differential equations
- Accelerating rendering of the shapes defined by mathematical functions
- Interactive free-form shape modeling and rendering
- Definition of physical properties for the virtual objects
- Definition of deformable objects by mathematical functions
- Collaborative shape modeling and haptic interaction using Sensable Phantom, Noving Falcon and potentially other devices
- Grid-based interactive visualization
- GPU-based interactive shape modeling and visualization
- Haptic communication with the participants of the Co-Space
A PhD degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Mathematics or related-fields. Advance knowledge of mathematics, geometry and good programming skills. Evidence of the experience will be required.
Knowledge of one or more of the following areas will be an advantage: 3D computer graphics, interactive computer graphics, web visualization, web programming, parallel computing. Good written and oral communication skills.
Remuneration & Benefits
Successful candidates will be offered a competitive salary and benefits based on their qualifications including medical insurance. Given good performance the salary will increase each year.
Term of Appointment
The initial appointment will be for two years followed the extension for the third year.
To be considered for the job, please send your complete CV, full list of publications (indicate 3 most significant publications authored by you), citation indices and expected salary via email to:
