Singapore ETH Centre-Ph.D. Positions 2011
Ph.D. Positions 2010 At Singapore ETH Centre for Global Environmental Sustainability (SEC)
The Singapore ETH Centre for Global Environmental Sustainability (SEC), a joint effort between ETH Zurich and the Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF), will launch the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) as its
first research programme in Singapore in September 2010. The FCL programme will undertake cutting-edge research in disciplines ranging from material science, engineering and environmental technologies to
communications technology and architecture. The FCL aims to research and develop solutions and guidelines directed towards the sustainable development of buildings, districts and regions.
Your task will be to identify and evaluate existing methods and to advance the state-of-the-art of interactive modelling and visualisation techniques of urban scenarios. In particular, you will focus on the design and implementation of methods involving large dynamic datasets, and solve questions how to interact with them, for instance in terms of new touch-based or gestural user interfaces.
You are interested in working in a large research project and you have the ability to perform research that results in concrete tools and instruments applicable in real-world and industry-relevant scenarios. You are a highly motivated candidate with initiative and enjoy working in an interdisciplinary and
multinational team. A diploma or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Architecture or a related field is expected. Experience in programming, human-computer interaction, computer graphics, or visualisation is a
plus. You will work at the Campus of the National University of Singapore. The position will be available from January 1st, 2011.
