Job opening: Opportunity to join interdisciplinary research team exploring realistic rendering and high dynamic range imaging

Hello list,

we've got a position open for someone with Radiance-skills:
For details see below.



24,402 - 26,666 per annum, (english pounds) depending on skills and
experience. In first instance fixed term for 1 year (maternity cover).

This post is funded via the EPSRC award "High Dynamic Range for High
Fidelity Image Synthesis of Real Scenes". The aim of this project is to
compute and display the highest fidelity computer-generated images of real scenes.
You should have proven programming skills in C++ or Matlab and
enthusiasm for problem solving and research. Under the guidance of Dr Bloj you will develop a BRDF (Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function) capture system based on digital photography, implement the corresponding model in a rendering package (preferably RADIANCE) and support the psychophysical evaluation of the resulting images using standard displays and a Brightside DR37-P High Dynamic Range Display.
This represents an exciting opportunity for a promising researcher to join a vibrant interdisciplinary team with partners at the Warwick Digital Lab and Brightside (now part of DOLBY) working on the development and validation of High Dynamic Range capture and display systems.
The successful applicant will be based in Dr Bloj's lab in the University of Bradford, UK.

Informal enquires can be made to Dr Marina Bloj. Tel +44 (0)1274 236258;
e-mail: [email protected] or Dr Alexa Ruppertsberg +44 (01274 235378; e-mail [email protected] .

CLOSING DATE: 13th August 2007. We expect to interview during the week of 20th August. Job reference ROP2306.
