The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is a joint department at Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg, with activities on two campuses in the city of Gothenburg. The department has around 240 employees from over 30 countries. Our research has a wide span, from theoretical foundations to applied systems development. We provide high quality education at Bachelor’s, Master’s and graduate levels, offering over 120 courses each year. We also have extensive national and international collaborations with academia, industry and society. Read more about CSE
Information about The Computer Graphics research group
The PhD student will be part of the The Computer Graphics research group. The group conducts research with high impact internationally on new algorithms for photo-realistic real-time and off-line rendering. The project focuses on compression of scene illumination data to enable real-time visualization of highly photorealistic scenes.
The PhD student will cooperate in a new project financed by Vetenskapsrådet, where we will further explore data structures and algorithms for compressing precomputed illumination information. The student will develop and invent new methods that will enable much higher photorealism in real-time than is currently possible.
The employment is expected to start early autumn 2018 (small deviations are negotiable). As a PhD. student, you are employed by Chalmers and will receive a salary according to current salary agreements. A maximum of 20% of your time will be devoted to other duties at the department and may include teaching. The remaining time will be devoted to your own courses and research within the project, and you are expected to obtain a PhD. within a maximum of 5 years.
Your major responsibilities are to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers’ undergraduate level or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.
Applicant shall have a Master’s Degree or equivalent (e.g. sw. civilingenjörsexamen) in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Physics Engineering, or in a related discipline.
As for all PhD studies, a genuine interest and curiosity in the subject matter and excellent analytical and communication skills, orally as well as literally, are needed. Further, since the research work normally involves developing new techniques and fast prototyping, good programming skills are essential.
A strong background in OpenGL/Direct3D, CUDA/OpenCL, graphics programming, algorithms and mathematics is expected. Industrial experience is also highly meriting. A successful candidate should have a profound interest in algorithms for computer graphics and parallel algorithms for GPUs.
Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
