EPSRC Funded PhD Studentship in Interactive Multimedia Applications, Durham University, UK

EPSRC funded Ph.D. studentship (3.5 years) in Interactive Multimedia Applications, Durham University, UK
Applications are invited for a Ph.D. student to work on an EPSRC funded project entitled “An Interactive and Intuitive Object Deformation Framework for Interactive Multimedia Applications” in the Department of Computer Science. The aim of the project is to develop techniques to improve object deformation performance and quality, and to offer a novel interface for specifying deformation constraints and manipulators.

The research will lead to high quality interactive deformable object processing and usage. It will also benefit various industry sectors, including product or engineering design, medical applications, digital entertainment and computer gaming.

Prospective candidates will have a good honours (or equivalent) degree in Computer Science or other relevant subjects. The successful applicant should have a good background in most of the following areas: computer graphics, multimedia systems, mathematics and computer programming.

This fully funded studentship is at the standard EPSRC rate (£12,940 p.a. for 08/09).
