TWO PHD FELLOWSHIPS IN COLOUR AND APPEARANCE MEASUREMENT

The Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (http://www.ntnu.edu/ie)
at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has 2
vacancies for positions as PhD fellow within the field of Colour and Appearance
Measurement, at the Department of Computer Science (IDI) (http://www.ntnu.edu/idi).

Both positions are hosted at The Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing
Laboratory
(Colourlab, http://www.colourlab.no) in Gjøvik, Norway, and funded
by the Research Council of Norway in the FRINATEK Toppforsk project Measuring
and Understanding Visual Appearance
(MUVApp, http://www.colourlab.no/muvapp).
The MUVApp project, led by Professor Jon Y. Hardeberg, aims at developing new
knowledge on how humans perceive the visual appearance of materials, objects,
and scenes, and to develop new methodologies for measuring and communicating
visual appearance and appearance-related material and object properties.

PhD Fellowship 1:
Measurement and modelling of appearance

The visual appearance of materials is a complex phenomenon, which incorporates
a number of different attributes such as perceived colour, gloss, texture and
sub-surface effects such as scattering. Recent work in this field has enabled a
move from the study of individual attributes in isolation to consideration of
total appearance. The research challenge is to develop integrated methods of
measuring appearance, together with suitable models, that can accurately
predict the visual appearance of a material surface under different viewing
conditions. The PhD fellow will work with state of the art instruments, develop
and extend appearance models from physical measurements, and where necessary
develop new measurement methods. The fellow will carry out her/his research
under supervision from Professor Phil Green, Associate Professor Peter
Nussbaum, and in collaboration with Dr. Gaël Obein from CNAM, France.

PhD Fellowship 2: Image statistics for visual material appearance
The visual appearance of materials is a complex phenomenon, which incorporates
a number of different attributes such as perceived colour, gloss, texture and
sub-surface effects such as scattering. The PhD fellow will work on image
statistics for material appearance, with the goal of describing material
appearance through image statistics, and validating the results through
psychometric scaling experiments and material samples. The fellow will carry
out her/his research under supervision from Professor Jon Yngve Hardeberg,
Associate Professor Marius Pedersen, and in collaboration with Professor Karl
Gegenfurtner from Justus-Liebig Universität Giessen, Germany. 

The positions are for three years full time or potentially extended to four
years with teaching duties, and remunerated according to Norwegian regulations
(in the range of gross 50-55 000 USD per year). For more information about the
positions, and to apply (before April 30, 2017), refer to https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/137155/
