University of Bremen: open position in geometric computing

The EuroVR member University of Bremen has an open position in Geometric Computing and Virtual Reality for Autonomous Space Navigation


Project description

The goal of this project it to research and develop novel methods for autonomous navigation that will allow ambitious space missions in the future, and which can also be transferred into terrestrial applications. The position advertised here, however, will mainly work on algorithms and methods in the area of geometric computing and virtual reality. In particular, the simulation of bi-static radar imaging, simulation of gravity fields around asteroids, its inverse problem, distance computations between spacecraft and surface, and procedural generation of asteroid geometry are the focus of this position.

Candidate profile

Candidates should have an excellent Master’s degree or equivalent in computer science, or physics, mathematics, computational engineering, etc. Required skills are solid experience in C++ software development, and a very good command of English (reading/writing/speaking). Ideally, you have some knowledge of computer graphics algorithms, virtual reality, radar wave physics, physically-based simulation, you are capable of effectively applying mathematical methods, and you have good knowledge in GPGPU programming.

How to apply

Applications should comprise a cover letter, complete CV including any achievements, degree certificates (including transcript of courses and grades), names and contact details of at least two referees, and other credentials (if any). Application by email is preferred.
