Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Computational Geometry for Textile Design & Manufacturing)

We are looking for a postdoctoral research fellow who has experience with developing and implementing computational algorithms for geometry processing.
He or she will be involved in the interdisciplinary development of an enhanced computational design, optimization, and fabrication framework for functional textiles. The objective is to develop and implement novel computational algorithms for the physical realization of complex three dimensional (3D) technical textile designs using state-of-the-art CNC knitting technology.
The position requires expertise in computational geometry and software development. The candidate must be passionate about interdisciplinary, cutting-edge research and have good communicative skills.

Desired qualifications:
- PhD in Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Structural or Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, or related areas.
- Expertise in computational geometry and computer graphics.
- Previous experience in developing surface re-parameterization and flattening methods is a strong plus.
- Previous experience with textiles and CNC-knitting is a strong plus.
- Experience with CAD, FEA and CAM software.
- Strong programming skills in C++, MATLAB or similar.
- A strong publication record with at least one first author paper in top-tier journals or conferences of the relevant fields.
