The Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (http://www.ntnu.edu/ie) at theNorwegian University of Science and Technology(NTNU) has 2 vacancies for positions as PhD fellow within the field of Colour and Appearance Measurement, at the Department of Computer Science (IDI) (http://www.ntnu.edu/idi).
The positions are for three years full time or potentially extended to four years with teaching duties, and remunerated according to Norwegian regulations (in the range of gross 50-55 000 USD per year). For more information about the positions, and to apply (before April 30, 2017), refer to https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/137155/
The visual appearance of materials is a complex phenomenon, which incorporates a number of different attributes such as perceived colour, gloss, texture and sub-surface effects such as scattering. Recent work in this field has enabled a move from the study of individual attributes in isolation to consideration of total appearance. The research challenge is to develop integrated methods of measuring appearance, together with suitable models, that can accurately predict the visual appearance of a material surface under different viewing conditions. The PhD fellow will work with state of the art instruments, develop and extend appearance models from physical measurements, and where necessary develop new measurement methods. The fellow will carry out her/his research under supervision from Professor Phil Green, Associate Professor Peter Nussbaum, and in collaboration with Dr. Gaël Obein from CNAM, France.
The visual appearance of materials is a complex phenomenon, which incorporates a number of different attributes such as perceived colour, gloss, texture and sub-surface effects such as scattering. The PhD fellow will work on image statistics for material appearance, with the goal of describing material appearance through image statistics, and validating the results through psychometric scaling experiments and material samples. The fellow will carry out her/his research under supervision from Professor Jon Yngve Hardeberg, Associate Professor Marius Pedersen, and in collaboration with Professor Karl Gegenfurtner from Justus-Liebig Universität Giessen, Germany.
