Job description

As part of the innovative XTREME project, you will delve into the forefront of research in computer vision and photogrammetry.

This position is part of a recently EU-funded XTREME project: Mixed Reality Environment for Immersive Experience of Art and Culture. The overall objective of XTREME is to develop a human-centred and ethically developed digital and industrial mixed reality environment to experience art and music performances and concerts and to improve its social value. The project is a collaboration among 14 partners, including IT University Copenhagen and the University of Twente. You will be based in a team with outstanding academic performance (as reflected by our publications in impactful journals and conferences), a strong industrial network, and a pleasant, collaborative atmosphere. You will be working on calibrating multi-sensor systems, reconstructing high-fidelity 3D CAD models, and developing scene synthesis methods for blending virtual and real scenes.

You will perform research on your topics, and collaborate with other researchers and experts in the XTREME project to contribute to the development of new techniques and approaches. You will present (both preliminary and mature) results at appropriate meetings and conferences, publish results in scientific workshops, conference proceedings, and journals, contribute to teaching on topics related to your work, and supervise and mentor involved MSc students as needed.
