[visionlist] Two PhD Fellowships in Colour and Appearance Measurement at NTNU Colourlab

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://ift.tt/2oRsiyh).
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 http://ift.tt/2oh1Iki
Best Regards,
Jon Y. Hardeberg
