2 PhD Positions at CRS4 (out of 14) in MSCA Innovative Training Network EVOCATION

We are happy to announce the availability of 2 Early-Stage Researcher (ESR) PhD positions (out of 14) in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on Advanced Visual and Geometric Computing for 3D Capture, Display, and Fabrication (EVOCATION). EVOCATION officially started in October 2018 and will last four years.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates for becoming part of the next generation of early-stage scientific and industrial researchers (ESRs) who in the future will lead research and development of novel visual and geometric computing methodologies in a wide range of industries and application domains, including industrial design and manufacturing, architecture, cultural heritage study and valorisation, geomatics, and tele-collaboration.

We can offer you a 36-months PhD training program coordinated among eight academic and industrial partners. Successful candidates will receive a competitive salary and employment benefits in accordance with the MSCA regulations.

CRS4 positions are the following:


The EVOCATION network of public and private entities is naturally multidisciplinary and multi-institutional and will: (a) advance the state-of-the-art in geometry and material acquisition, geometry processing and semantic feature extraction, interactive visualization, computational fabrication, as well as high-bandwidth / 3D display systems; (b) bridge complementary approaches for cost-effective data digitization, visualization, fabrication, and display through the integration of different methodologies in the 3D capture, processing and fabrication pipeline; (c) promote, through domain-specific challenges, multidisciplinary research applied to concrete problems of the real world, in strict cooperation with end users in engineering, science and humanities; (d) demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of scalable cost-effective end-to-end techniques to virtually and physically capture and create objects with complex shape and appearance; (e) increase awareness of the benefits of advanced visual and geometric computing technology in both professional and consumer domains.

The positions will be hosted at the following prestigious institutions from across Europe:

  • University of Rostock, Germany (UNIRO) - 2 ESR fellowships (ESR01, ESR02)
  • Center for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia, Italy (CRS4) - 2 ESR fellowships (ESR03, ESR04)
  • University of Zürich, Switzerland (UZH) - 2 ESR fellowships (ESR05, ESR06)
  • Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Italy (CNR) - 2 ESR Fellowships (ESR07, ESR08)
  • TU Wien, Austria (TU WIEN) - 2 ESR Fellowships (ESR09, ESR10)
  • Fraunhofer IGD Darmstadt, Germany (FRAUNHOFER) - 2 ESR fellowships (ESR11, ESR12)
  • Holografika, Budapest, Hungary (HOLO) - 1 ESR fellowship (ESR13)
  • Gexcel, Brescia, Italy (GEX) - 1 ESR fellowship (ESR14)
