The Immersive & Creative Technologies Lab was founded in late 2011, and since its establishment, it has been focusing on fundamental and applied research in areas of Computer Science. In particular, researchers at the lab are focused on computer vision, computer graphics, virtual/augmented reality and creative technologies and their application in various fields.
More specifically, the long-term objectives of the research at the ICT Lab are to create (a) virtual worlds which are indistinguishable in all aspects from the real-world areas they represent and (b) visualizations employing these realistic virtual worlds for a wide range of applications.
Since 2015, the ICT lab has been attracting students with a background in Computer Science and Engineering. Prior to 2015, the ICT lab included students from Media Arts and related disciplines.
The ICT lab is equipped with high-end workstations and data acquisition devices (active and passive sensors), VR and AR equipment, and has access to other cutting-edge devices such as 3D scanners, motion-capture, biopak, GPU cluster, etc.
We are always looking for highly motivated and creative individuals who enjoy working in a collaborative research environment. Good communication skills and fluency in English are required. Applicants should have strong academic training, including an undergraduate or graduate degree in a relevant discipline, i.e. computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, or statistics, and have excellent mathematical skills. High proficiency in scientific coding, i.e. C++, C, Python, OpenCV, OpenGL and Matlab is desired. Having experience with 3D computer vision, robotics, or a related area and a background in machine learning techniques is desirable and will be considered a plus.
