We are looking for motivated candidates for a 2-month student internship
in our interdisciplinary team to contribute to our project Daylight
Redirecting Components ( and further our
development of in-house simulation software within the framework of the
RADIANCE rendering system.

As part of our research agenda, we plan to investigate the application of
Quasi-Monte-Carlo raytracing (including photon-mapping) for improved
convergence of our simulations. The intern is tasked with the development
and evaluation of a low-discrepancy series generator as a drop-in
replacement for the standard random number generator used in the RADIANCE
software. The intern is expected to conduct preliminary research in the
field, be self-organised, and complete assigned tasks independently.

The candidate should have a background in mathematics and/or computer
science, and be knowledgeable in the following fields:
- Monte-Carlo techniques and statistics
- Raytracing, path tracing, photon mapping
In addition, familiarity with the RADIANCE rendering system and BSDF
representations is desirable.

Candidates can apply directly by replying to the address below and
forwarding their CV, list of related projects, recent transcript, and
motivational letter.
