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 a student (f/m) who would like to get insights into everyday business at Austria’s frontrunner Competence Center in the field of Visual Computing. You will support our research mission by solving the following task:
Evaluating the State of the Art in Transfer Functions
In Volume Rendering, one of the most important topics is the definition of Transfer Functions (TFs). TFs link data information to visual properties that reveal relevant information to the user and enable interactive data exploration. In this project, the current state of the art in Transfer Functions should be evaluated in respect to their feasibility for visualization of challenging imaging data like 3D ultrasound.
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
Creativity and enthusiasm
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 completion of the task
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! By providing them with valuable insights into daily business at the junction of industry and science at an early stage of their careers, we aim to counter the lack of women researchers in the field of ICT proactively.
