PhD position

TU Wien is looking for exceptionally talented and highly motivated candidates for its SFB Advanced Computational Design. In this highly interdisciplinary Special Research Programme, we aim to develop advanced computational design tools for the early design phase in Architecture, Engineering and Construction. The SFB comprises 8 scientific subprojects in the areas of Design Methodology, Visual and Haptic Feedback, and Form Finding.

The work in the subproject "Flexible quad-surfaces for tranformable design" will involve fundamental research (geometry, algebra and complex analysis) and writing computer programs (Rhino/Grasshopper plug-ins) in collaboration with other members of the SFB.

For some details on this subproject see the presentation https://www.geometrie.tuwien.ac.at/izmestiev/FlexQuad/Vienna18Koko.pdf

Necessary skills: Master degree in Mathematics or Computer Science; good programming skills in C++ or similar; interest in interdisciplinary research; good teamworking skills; fluency in English.

Desired skills: basic knowledge in algebraic geometry, complex analysis and geometric kinematics; experience in working with Mathematica or Maple software; experience with Rhino/Grasshopper.

The application must be submitted via the online platform https://gcd.tuwien.ac.at/?page_id=2404
