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 transformable design" will involve fundamental research (geometry, algebra and complex analysis) and interaction with the other SFB subprojects on the subject of design goals and restrictions.
For some details on the project see the presentation https://www.geometrie.tuwien.ac.at/izmestiev/FlexQuad/Vienna18Koko.pdf
Necessary skills: PhD degree in Mathematics; interest in interdisciplinary research; good teamworking skills; fluency in English.
Desired skills: experience in working with Mathematica or Maple; background in algebraic geometry and complex analysis; background in geometric kinematics.
The application must be submitted via the online platform https://gcd.tuwien.ac.at/?page_id=2404
