Storkøbenhavn

Frist 1. marts 2019

DTU Compute’s Section for Image Analysis & Computer Graphics, would like to invite applications for a 3-year PhD position starting 15 September 2019. The project is financed by EU-funded Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, Initial Training Network project entitled Appearance Printing European Advance Research School - ApPEARS.

Our department DTU Compute is an internationally unique academic environment spanning the science disciplines mathematics, statistics and computer science. At the same time, we are an engineering department covering informatics and communication technologies (ICT) in their broadest sense. Finally, we play a major role in addressing the societal challenges of the digital society where ICT is a part of every industry, service, and human endeavour.

DTU Compute strives to achieve research excellence in its basic science disciplines, to achieve technological leadership in research and innovation, and to address societal challenges in collaboration with partners at DTU and other academic institutions, nationally and internationally, and, equally important, with industry and organizations. We communicate and collaborate with leading centres and strategic partners in order to increase participation in major consortia.

DTU Compute plays a central role in education at all levels of the engineering programmes at DTU - both in terms of our scientific disciplines and our didactic innovation.

Project Description
The main objective of ApPEARS is to train next generation researchers within the field of appearance printing using 3D and 2.5D printing techniques as well as extending further the understanding of the appearance of prints from two to three dimensions.

The objective of this PhD is to combine knowledge of material reflectance, optics, and industrial post-print surface processing to develop a series of novel surface types for use in industrial and artistic applications.

The plan for the PhD project is that the early stage researcher should:

  • Identify an array of desired surface types, considering selected industrial and/or artistic requirements.
  • Establish and characterize print and processing parameters that can be manipulated to arrive at such surface types.
  • Design a system (model, algorithms) for modelling the appearance effect of the identified parameters.
  • Test the system in selected applications to illustrate potential for increased freedom-to-operate in surface design.

Requirements
Candidates must have a master degree in Visual Computing, 3D Multimedia Technology, Engineering Design, Applied Mechanics, Mathematical Modelling, Computer Science, or some combination of these topics. Preference will be given to candidates who can document a keen interest in additive manufacturing and some knowledge of visual computing (3D modelling, light-material interaction, colour science, computer graphics). Furthermore, good command of the English language is essential.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in the DTU Compute PhD School Programme. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

Assessment
The assessment of the applicants will be made by main supervisor Jeppe Revall Frisvad (DTU) and co-supervisors Are Strandlie (NTNU) and David Bue Pedersen (DTU).

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment. We strive for academic excellence in an environment characterized by collegial respect and academic freedom tempered by responsibility.

Salary and appointment terms
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years.

The candidate must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Denmark for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to his/her recruitment under the project (short stays such as holidays are not counted).

At the time of recruitment, the candidate must not have been awarded a doctorate degree and must be in the first 4 years of her/his research career.

The candidate must work exclusively for the project during the employment contract.

Researchers can be of any nationality. They are required to undertake transnational mobility (i.e. Move from one country to another) when taking up their appointment.

Further Information
Further information concerning the project can be obtained from supervisor Jeppe Revall Frisvad, jerf@dtu.dk, +45 4525 3358.

Further information concerning the application is available at the DTU Compute PhD homepageor by contacting PhD coordinator Lene Matthisson+45 4525 3377.

Application
Please submit your online application no later than 1 March 2019 (local time). To apply, please open the link "Apply online", fill out the online application form. The following must be attached in English:

  • application (letter of motivation)
  • CV
  • documentation of a relevant completed M.Sc. or M.Eng.-degree
  • course and grade list of bachelor and master degrees
  • Excel sheet with translation of grades to the Danish grading system (see guidelines and excel spreadsheet here)

Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master's degree, but cannot begin before having received it.

Applications and enclosures received after the deadline will not be considered.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
