OFFER DESCRIPTION

UPF-GTI (https://www.upf.edu/web/gti), a research and innovation group within Engineering and Information Communication Technologies Department (https://www.upf.edu/web/etic) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, is looking for a recent engineering graduate, to support UPF-GTI in exploring innovative aspects with respect to rendering based on ray tracing using GPU-specific ray-tracing languages, with previous experience in this subject and joining immediately.

High quality photo-realistic rendering is usually based on ray tracing. R Marques and L P Santos presented an interesting real time approach in the paper Instant Global Illumination on the GPU using OptiX (INForum 2010 - II Simpósio de Informática, Luís S. Barbosa, Miguel P. Correia(eds), 9-10 Setembro, 2010, pp. 329–340), based on some Nvidia developments. UPF-GTI wants to recruit a recent graduate in engineering to continue this exploration, taking advantage of the significant advances in GPU power, and the OptiX language since then. The candidate should have a strong background in 3D Computer Graphics, especially with respect to rendering aspects based on ray tracing. Experience in GPU programming is required, and it will be an advantage previous experience with OptiX, as UPF-GTI is interested in obtaining results quickly; we look for candidates that can join in very short delays. Exposure to innovation and European projects is as well advantageous. The working language will be English. The position can be compatible with Masters related work.
