Job: PhD in novel interactive visual analysis methods at University of Leeds

PhD in Novel Interactive Visual Analysis Methods for 3D Seismic Data 

A three-year PhD studentship is available at the University of Leeds (UK) to develop novel methods for analysing and visualising 3D seismic data on interactive gigapixel (Powerwall) displays. This project will improve the ability of geoscientists to understand and analyse the geology revealed by large scale seismic surveys. Significant potential exists for industrial involvement both during the project and after PhD completion, but also for academic advancement. The PhD student will be co-supervised by Dr Roy Ruddle & Dr Hamish Carr (Visualization & Virtual Reality research group, School of Computing) and Dr Douglas Paton (Centre of Integrated Petroleum Engineering and Geoscience (CiPEG), School of Earth and Environment). Roy Ruddle specialises in navigation and real-time interaction with 3D worlds ( Hamish Carr specialises in geometric and topological analysis of spatial data sets ( Douglas Paton specialises in using 3D seismic to understand tectonic and geological processes in the sub-surface. The PhD studentship is worth a total of approximately £66,000, and includes full fees for a UK/EU student and a three and a half year stipend that is initially £13,490 per annum. Start date Monday 27th September 2010. Closing date for applications: Monday 31st May 2010 For further information, see and
