We are happy to announce the availability at CRS4 of 2 Early-Stage Researcher (ESR) PhD positions (out of 14) in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on Advanced Visual and Geometric Computing for 3D Capture, Display, and Fabrication (EVOCATION). This project has received funding from the European Union’s (EU) Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN Project under grant agreement No 813170.

2. APPLY HERE: http://jobs.crs4.it/show/jo-48-0507


EVOCATION, started in October 2018 and lasting four years, is a leading European-wide doctoral Collegium focusing on scalable and high-fidelity shape and appearance acquisition, extraction of structure and semantic information, processing, visualization, 3D display and 3D fabrication in professional and consumer applications.

The EVOCATION network of public and private entities is naturally multidisciplinary and multi-institutional and will: (a) advance the state-of-the-art in geometry and material acquisition, geometry processing and semantic feature extraction, interactive visualization, computational fabrication, as well as high-bandwidth / 3D display systems; (b) bridge complementary approaches for cost-effective data digitization, visualization, fabrication, and display through the integration of different methodologies in the 3D capture, processing and fabrication pipeline; (c) promote, through domain-specific challenges, multidisciplinary research applied to concrete problems of the real world, in strict cooperation with end users in engineering, science and humanities; (d) demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of scalable cost-effective end-to-end techniques to virtually and physically capture and create objects with complex shape and appearance; (e) increase awareness of the benefits of advanced visual and geometric computing technology in both professional and consumer domains.

The network will host 14 ESRs distributed among 6 public institutions and 2 companies across Europe. The ESRs will receive scientific skills in cutting-edge techniques in a highly stimulating and collaborative international environment. Further information on the EVOCATION network is available at http://www.evocation.eu/

About CRS4

The Center for Research, Development, and Advanced Studies in Sardinia (CRS4) is an interdisciplinary research center focusing its activities on enabling computational technologies and on their application in thematic areas characterized by a high economic and social impact. In the field of Visual Computing, CRS4 is at the forefront of research in the acquisition, storage, processing, distribution, and interactive exploration of massive data. More information on the Visual Computing group is available at http://vic.crs4.it/

Open ESR fellowships

The open positions at CRS4 are for Early Stage Researchers in computer science with a focus on interactive 3D computer graphics and computer vision. The two specific research topics are the following:

  • ESR03: Scalable reconstruction and exploration of complex indoor environments – the fellow will study techniques to apply prior knowledge for the extraction of structured representation of multi-room environments from incomplete and noise sampling data. Methods for the representation and display of the recovered structures will be also studied. Expected results include scientific publications and prototype implementation of indoor capture and exploration systems

  • ESR04: Scalable exploration of complex objects & environments beyond visual replication – the fellow will study modeling methods and interaction techniques for permitting exploration of high fidelity 3D models annotated with semantic information. Researched topics will include information modeling, rendering methods, and user interfaces. Expected results include scientific publications and prototype implementation of exploration systems

On the part of the applicants, this requires interest not only in visual-computing-related algorithms and data structures but also in the task and data complexity of targeted applications, and collaboration with domain scientists and other institutions.

Furthermore, a strong interest and good skills in learning new programming frameworks, 3rd-party code and applied mathematics is necessary, as the targeted research project also builds on other and previously developed techniques.

The main goal is to conduct excellent research, generating results which are published and presented in top international journals and conferences, while being practically applicable for solving challenging large scale visualization problems. The activities will not only include research and continuing education for network participants, but also support in teaching (esp. to other network participants), as well as system/software maintenance and administrative tasks. The work will include also pursuing a PhD degree at the University of Cagliari.



Training: You will receive scientific skills in cutting-edge techniques in a highly stimulating and collaborative international environment.

PhD: You will be requested to register for the Doctorate program in Computer Science of the University of Cagliari.

Salary: You will receive a highly competitive salary according to Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions rules. The salary will include living and mobility allowances.

Hosting conditions: Each recruited fellow will have a supervisory team to develop training and career plans.
