PostDoc in 3D Spatialization

Overview

The Rendering and Modeling Group at TU Wien offers positions in the field of computer graphics/geometry. The main focus is 3D Spatialization, a research area in the Research Cluster Smart Communities and Technologies (Smart CT). Currently, we offer positions for:

We are currently open for applications - the position is to be filled as soon as possible, and for a duration of 3 years.

Topic

The Research Cluster "Smart Communities and Technologies" at TU Wien will provide the scientific underpinnings for next-generation complex smart-city and communities infrastructures. These involve smart buildings, smart products and production, smart traffic systems and roads, autonomous driving, smart grids for managing energy hubs and electric car utilization, and urban environmental systems research. In addition to 3D Spatialization - the topic of this call - Smart CT also covers the areas Cyber-Physical-Human Ecosystem and Model Building and Visual Analytics.

3D Spatialization creates the link between the smart-city infrastructure and the actual 3D world in which a city is embedded. The goal is to perform advanced computation and visualization tasks. Sensors, actuators and users are embedded in a complex 3D environment that is constantly changing. Acquiring, modeling and visualizing this dynamic 3D environment are the challenges we need to face using methods from visual computing and computer graphics.

3D Spatialization aims to make a city aware of its 3D environment, allowing it to perform spatial reasoning to solve problems like visibility, accessibility, lighting, and energy efficiency.

Tasks

In the context of 3D Spatialization, we expect the PostDoc researcher to tackle some of the following research problems:

A PhD researcher will collaborate with the PostDoc and other PhD researcher from the Research Cluster to work on these scientific problems and publish results in international conferences.

The PostDoc researcher will, in addition, provide a link to the other areas in the Research Cluster, as well as to stake holders (like the city of Vienna).
