We are looking for a PhD student in Visualization and Media Technology with focus on Scientific Visualization

Your work assignments

This Ph.D. position is motivated by the need for reliable visualization and data analysis methods that support understanding of the increasing amount of scientific data, e.g. from image acquisition modalities or scientific simulations. Efficient algorithms are at the core of most of these data analysis and visualization applications. The focus of this Ph.D. will be developing efficient and reliable algorithms that arise in the context of topological data analysis and rendering for the visualization of large amounts of data. Close cooperation with other visualization projects in various application areas is expected.

As a PhD student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.

Your qualifications

You have graduated at a Master’s level in Computer Science, Mathematics, or a closely related subject or completed courses with a minimum of 240 credits, at least 60 of which must be in advanced courses in the respective area.  Alternatively, you have gained essentially corresponding knowledge in another way.

The candidate should have excellent programming skills, preferably C++, and good knowledge of graphics programming and enjoy solving algorithmic challenges Fluency in spoken and written English is also a requirement. Knowledge and experience in one or more of the following areas would be advantageous: experiences in applied visualization, topological data analysis, and computer graphics.

Great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities and suitability

Your workplace

The scientific visualization unit is a part of the division Media and Information Technology at The department of science and Technology (ITN) at Linköping University. The focus is on research ranging from basic research questions in scientific visualization, with a focus on topological data analysis, to a wide range of application driven questions. A primary interest is developing reliable methods based on rigid mathematical foundations targeting visualization needs from specific applications.
