Job: Post-doctoral researcher for project on multi-touch 3D displays at University of Bristol

The Bristol Interaction and Graphics group ( of the University of Bristol is seeking to appoint a post-doctoral researcher with expertise in the area of display-technologies and human-computer interaction.

The ideal person will have skills in hardware and 3D display technologies to work on a project exploring the design and implementation of multi-touch surfaces with true-3D displays. This line of investigation is part of a large ERC funded project involving design of Interactive Systems Involving Multi-point Surfaces, Haptics and true-3D displays.

We are looking to focus on various solutions by which one can dynamically create true-3D content on an interactive surface and on understanding how interaction can be facilitated on a surface that combines 2D and 3D display.

Within this broad objective there will be plenty of freedom and flexibility in shaping the research project. The ultimate key requirement is to demonstrate academic excellence through high-quality peer-reviewed papers and strong interaction with the peer-community. The grant that funds this project aims to fund pioneering frontier research.

The project has sufficient resources to allow hardware prototyping and support conference travel. The team will ultimately include 2 RAs, 2PhDs and a project technician and the project will last for 5 years
