OFFER DESCRIPTION

If you are looking for a change and you have experience in artificial intelligence (AI) and(or) computer graphics (CG), this will be a great opportunity to apply. The research will be hosted at a National Centre for Computer Animation at UK (UK No. 1 ranking for Computer Animation) with special focus on innovations for creative technologies, such as applying artificial intelligence to boost digital creation. 

CfACTs is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) COFUND research centre operating from October 2020 to September 2025 within the National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA) of Bournemouth University. The CfACTs Research Fellows will be full-time employees of BU and embark on a two-year programme of collaborative world leading digital creative technology research and training provided by CfACTs, and its Partner Organisations.

The CfACTs Research Fellows are expected to gain industrial experience in one or more Partner Organisations for the majority of the two-year programme, with full academic support, jointly supervised by BU senior academics and industry experts. Receiving research training from BU, and industrial experience with UK creative technology companies (Partner Organisations), the Fellows will gain a cross-sectoral experience, delivering multi-disciplinary research focused on industrial applications related to BU’s Strategic Investment Areas: Animation, Simulation and Visualisation.

The CfACTs Research Fellows will research and develop new applied digital creative techniques, collaboratively with the Partner Organisations; and apply them cross-sectorally for various applications including, but not limited to, computer animation, visual effects (VFX), computer vision, visualisation, healthcare, retail and assistive technology. Each post holder will deliver the technical and scientific aspects of a proposed research project, to be agreed with the Centre and Partner Organisation prior to the project start.
