Research Fellow in Computer Science & Engineering NTU, Singapore

Research Fellow positions *for project "Visual and Haptic Rendering in Co-Space"*
*(computer graphics and mathematics)

*Job Description*
The job is in the area of computer graphics, mathematics, geometry. This is
a part of the NRF <> funded project entitled "Visual
and Haptic Rendering in Co-Space" which commences on 15 December 2008. The
work will be carried out at the Centre for Advance Media Technologies
(CAMTech) of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The goal of the
project is to propose an efficient interoperable mathematical model defining
geometry, visual appearance and tangible physical properties of virtual
objects in shared Co-Space <> - 3D virtual shared
space on the web. The object definitions must be small in size and invariant
to the rendering platform used in Co-Space. The particular goals of the
project include development of the fast interactive definitions by implicit
and explicit functions, description of complex geometry using parametric
partial differential equations, introduction of function-defined physical
properties to objects in Co-Space, and development of several exemplar
applications illustrating the usefulness of the proposed approach, including
an ability to establish physical contact with other party in Co-Space
through haptic devices.
*The project includes but not limited to the following tasks*:
- Definition of complex shapes with implicit, parametric and explicit
- Parameterization and implicitization
- Definition of interactive shapes using partial differential equations
- Accelerating rendering of the shapes defined by mathematical functions
- Interactive free-form shape modeling and rendering
- Definition of physical properties for the virtual objects
- Definition of deformable objects by mathematical functions
- Collaborative shape modeling and haptic interaction using Sensable
Phantom, Noving Falcon and potentially other devices
- Grid-based interactive visualization
- GPU-based interactive shape modeling and visualization
- Haptic communication with the participants of the Co-Space

*A *PhD degree *in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and
Electronics Engineering, Mathematics or related-fields.
Advance knowledge of mathematics, geometry and good programming skills.
Evidence of the experience will be required.
Knowledge of one or more of the following areas will be an advantage: 3D
computer graphics, interactive computer graphics, web visualization, web
programming, parallel computing.
Good written and oral communication skills.

*Remuneration & Benefits
*Successful candidates will be offered a competitive salary and benefits
based on their qualifications. The salary fund for this position is up to S$
90,000 per year which includes the basic salary, 13th salary, yearly
performance bonus (1-2 basic salaries), and medical insurance. Given good
performance the salary will increase by 8-10% each year. Hence for an
expatriate PhD with several years of experience the starting basic salary
can be in the range S$ 4,500 - 6,300 (+ 13 salary at the end of each year +
1 salary of the yearly performance bonus - annual income tax which can be
calculated here For
Singaporean and SPR applicants the salary will also include CPF contribution
(within the same funds).

*Term of Appointment
*The initial appointment will be for two years followed the extension for
the third year.
*Application process
*To be considered for the job, please send your complete CV, full list of
publications (indicate 3 most significant publications authored by you),
citation indices and expected salary via email to:

Please also write which of the above listed research tasks you are
most comfortable with as well as, with as much details as possible, about
the knowledge, skills and experience you have with reference to it.

*Closing Date*
The position will be available soon and will be open until a suitable
candidate is found.

The way to AMINEF in Gedung Balai Pustaka

American Indonesian Exchange Foundation
Balai Pustaka Building, 6th. Floor
Jl. Gunung Sahari Raya No. 4
Jakarta 10720, Indonesia

1. The buses which goes to Senen Bus Station all of them pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. Especially which route is through Pasar Baru .

2. Bus Transjakarta, from Blok M you have to change the bus 2-3 times.
Way 1 : from Blok M change the bus in Dukuh Atas bus stop to the bus towards Pulogadung, then take a bus in Pramuka bus stop towards Ancol, this bus pass through Gedung Balai Pustaka. The closest bus stop (Budi Utomo) is about 800 meters from Gedung Balai .
Way 2 : From Blok M take the bus in the Harmoni Bus Stop, the bus towards Pulogadung, get down in Senen Bus Stop and walk about 800 meters, or from this bus stop take the bus towards Ancol and get down as mentioned in way 1. About the distance, this two bus stops is about the same. (It is better if you take ojek or bajaj from this bus stop to Gedung Balai Pustaka)

3. If you take taxi with old tariff (TL=Tarif Lama) from blok M with no traffic jam is about Rp. 30.000,00.

4. From Blok M use bus Patas AC 76. Gedung Balai Pustaka is in the right side, after you pass through Depag, and say to conductor "Balai Pustaka"

5. Use a busway from Blok M towards Kota, get down in Sawah Besar bus stop. From here take a Mikrolet M12 towards Senen. After cross road Wahidin and before senen get down and cross the street.
