Chair in Visual Computing · University of Rostock
Dr. Staadt is a full professor of Computer Science and was, from 2016–2018, Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at the University of Rostock. He received a Master of Science in computer science and a PhD in computer science from TU Darmstadt and ETH Zurich, respectively. Prior to joining the University of Rostock, he was an Assistant Professor of computer science at the University of California, Davis, where he was also the director of the Virtual Reality Laboratory. His research interests include computer graphics, virtual reality, telepresence, visualization, and multiresolution analysis. He serves as a member of international program committees of many graphics, VR, and visualization conferences. Dr. Staadt is associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics (TVCG), Computers & Graphics, and Computer Animation and Virtual Worlds. He was co-chair of the program committees of the EG/IEEE Symposium on Point-Based Graphics (PBG) 2008, and the Forth International Symposium on 3D Data Processing, Visualization and Transmission (3DPVT) 2008, and the 5th Joint Virtual Reality Conference of Eurographics Virtual Environments and EuroVR (JVRC) 2013. He was STAR Co-Chair of Eurographics 2015 in Zurich and Program Co-Chair of ACM VRST 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Dr. Staadt is fellow of the Eurographics Association and a member of ACM, ACM SIGGRAPH, and the IEEE Computer Society. Since 2013, he is chair of the Expert Group on Virtual and Augmented Reality of the German Informatics Society.

We are happy to announce the availability of 14 Early-Stage Researcher (ESR) PhD positions in Advanced Visual and Geometric Computing for 3D Capture, Display, and Fabrication (EVOCATION), a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network. EVOCATION officially started in October 2018. These PhDs are early-stage scientific and industrial researchers who in the future will lead research and development of novel visual and geometric computing methodologies in the widest variety of applications, including industrial design and manufacturing, architecture, cultural heritage study and valorisation, geomatics, and tele-collaboration.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates for becoming the next generation of early-stage scientific and industrial researchers (ESRs) who in the future will lead research and development of novel visual and geometric computing methodologies in wide range of industries and application domains.
We can offer you a 36-months PhD training program coordinated among eight academic and industrial partners.
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 positions will be hosted at the following prestigious institutions from across Europe:
