PhD scholarships in visualisation, Griffith University, Australia

Applications are invited for two full-time PhD scholarships in the area of visualisation and virtual reality. Each scholarship is worth AU$20k per annum.

The Centre for Active Visualisation (CAV) is a new joint initiative of the School of Information Technology at Griffith University Gold Coast, Australia, and the Queensland Parallel Supercomputing Foundation (QPSF). Located within a new $9M Multimedia Building, facilities at CAV include a twin screen stereo 3D back projection system, motion tracker, eye tracker, treadmill, as well as Sun, SGI, PC, and Apple platforms. Projects at CAV have a multidisciplinary focus and include dynamical systems modelling of locomotion, especially human gait and automobile driving, virtual rehabilitation of gait disorders, speech-hand interaction and gestural communication, and autonomous mobile robots. We are also keen to develop new projects in haptic devices and multimodal feedback. Applicants should have a background in computer programming and an interest in scientific visualisation and multimodal interfaces. Applications from persons with a background in information technology, computer science, cognitive science, experimental psychology, complex systems, or human movement science are particularly welcomed.

The closing date for applications is 19th April. However, submissions will be accepted until the positions are filled.

Please send covering letter, vitae, reprints, pre-prints or other evidence of scholarly activity to:
