Offer Description

Nine organisations from all across Europe and 15 Early-Stage Researchers in the field of Computer Graphics joined for the PRIME (Predictive Rendering In Manufacture and Engineering) project. Each PhD position has individual research topics. Right now, one position is opening up again, giving you a unique opportunity to join a successful research project!

Specific vacancy:

Institution: Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic

Topic: position ESR01 - Predictive Rendering of Fluorescent Materials

The ESR 01 PhD position within PRIME 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.
