New PhD admission in Light Field for Virtual Reality 2020
European collaborative research of The University of Kent is offering new PhD admission 2020 as part of project titled Light Field for Virtual Reality, which is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund Interreg VA FCE ADAPT project, and Interreg VA 2 Seas MOTION and H4DC projects. This creates skills that are more immersive, more normal, and more easy. Panoramic light fields can deliver a solution to these limits because they allow us to acquire and display real-world scenes in VR where users can look in every direction while moving their head around in the scene as well. Furthermore, Light Field (LF) comes with additional benefits over traditional 3D modelled scenes that require extensive effort for artists to build detailed models, author complex surface shaders, and compose and simulate complex lighting. For scenes available to be photographed, light field imaging vastly reduces this effort, achieving photorealism through the interpolation and extrapolation of pixel data from images which are already photorealistic.
Job of students for new PhD admission 2020:
Undertake research, including theoretical and applied analysis, to develop novel solutions and adapt existing technology for light field imaging and virtual reality.
Liaise with project partners regarding the integration of the developed solution within the overall project demonstrator
Publish and disseminate research findings in peer-reviewed journals
Write reports and produce electronic and other material and content
Present at seminars and briefings to academic audiences
Present and participate in international meetings
Some teaching input and student supervision
Use research resources as appropriate, plan and manage their research work in collaboration with others.
We are looking for an outstanding applicant with a relevant first degree and strong Master’s degree in Electronics and /or Computer Science, or areas relevant to the PhD topic, and ideally, be familiar with Light Field (LF), or Virtual Reality (VR), or automated image processing and understanding.
Length of Grant: 3 years
