Technical University of Denmark (DTU) has an open PhD position (early-stage researcher) in the H2020 MSCA ITN RealVision project (www.realvision-itn.eu/) at DTU Fotonik. The RealVision Innovative Training Network (ITN) will investigate the problem of capturing, processing and displaying hyper-realistic images with the aim of building the hyper-realistic visual imaging and display systems of the future.
The goal of the project is to encode light field image data for flexible access and processing. Light field video and imaging lead to very large amounts of data and coding is crucial to utilize the data efficiently. High-quality coding of light field data facilitating interactive, visually oriented applications will be developed. The coding scheme will be based on modelling relations of subsets, e.g. close-by views and efficient coding of these. For modelling, advanced flow and motion estimation formulations will be established for subsets of the data. Random access view extraction shall be implemented, applied and extended for interactive user defined access for selected applications. The project shall produce:
During the project, the PhD candidate will have close contact with the other RealVision consortium groups, including an extended research stay at CNRS in Paris, France. In order to ensure contact with industry, the ESR will also have an extended research stay with the RealVision partner organisation Technicolor, France.
We offerextensive knowledge ofstages in the visual processing chain, including acquisition, processing, coding, delivery, and display, and the opportunity to achieve acommon goal of building the hyper-realistic visual imaging and display systems of the future.
The research and development in RealVision will giveextremely high quality, hyper-realistic visual experience.
If you are interested, please go to DTU web-page with the call.
The candidate should have a master's degree in electrical, electronics, computer science, telecommunications, mathematics or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master's degree. A solid background in image or video processing or coding is an asset. We expect the candidate to have good programming skills. Good communication skills in written and spoken English are a must. Starting date is spring/summer 2018.
The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please refer to the DTU PhD Guide.
The assessment of the applicants will be made by Professor Søren Forchhammer, email firstname.lastname@example.org in accordance with RealVision recruitment procedures.
Please do not send applications to this email address, instead apply online as described below.
