We tackle biomedical image informatics challenges in a friendly and inspiring atmosphere by (pre-)processing, analyzing and visualizing large amounts of image data from medicine and biotechnology.
Currently, we are looking for support from a student (f/m) who wants to give her/his diploma or master thesis an application driven focus with the following topic:
Optimizing Volume Rendering
In volume rendering, we are often concerned with finding optimal parameterizations. Finding, for example, optimal camera and light positions to obtain nice views is not always trivial, while deciding the optimal rendering parameters remains tedious. Additionally, the use of smart visibility concepts and occlusion-aware techniques is often discussed when trying to develop expressive visualization techniques that are able to maximize the visual information that is presented to the user. In this project, we would like to investigate, develop and evaluate novel optimization strategies for the view and the involved rendering parameters, as well as new methodologies for smart visibility in volume rendering.
Therefore, we are looking for a female or male student who would like to support optimizing volume rendering techniques as part of their diploma/ master’s thesis. Your research work will be embedded in the current project operation, which is why we would closely support your work and prefer the completion of the thesis within 6 to 8 months.
What you will bring to the team
Bachelor's degree in computing, informatics, data science or a similar area
Interest and knowledge in medical visualization
Good knowledge of volume rendering
Programming skills, in particular C++ and DirectX
What we offer in return
Very friendly and supportive work atmosphere
Flexible working hours and well-equipped workplace
Excellent professional support by our team
Opportunity to access our network of university partners (e.g. for bachelor/master thesis supervision)
Opportunity for female researchers to join the Women in Visual Computing Network hosted by our colleagues
Appropriate remuneration upon successful thesis completion
Applications are always welcome.
Please contact Katja Bühler to send in your application or to inquire about additional information. We especially would like to encourage female students to apply!
