Double Win! 🚀🎉 We are thrilled to announce that two of our scientists on campus have received a Eurographics Award for Best PhD Thesis 2021. Big congratulations to Michal Piovarči, postdoc in our group, and Ruslan Guseinov, TWIST fellow and former PhD student of the Bickel group, for this amazing achievement!
The deadline for applications to our PhD program is Jan 8, 2021 for a PhD entry in September 2021. Possible thesis topics are centered around physics-based simulation, geometry processing, numerical methods, computational fabrication, and machine learning for 3D geometry and volumetric data. Our curiosity-driven, interdisciplinary research environment also provides opportunities for collaborative projects with physicists, mathematicians, and neuroscientists!
Our project AutoMold won the rizup GENIUS award in the category R&D. Congratulations!
Several competitive postdoctoral fellowships are available at IST Austria! The closing date for the 2020 Call for Proposals for the NOMIS Fellowship is 03/09/2020 (14:00 CET). The closing date for the ISTfellow 2020 Call for Proposals is 08/09/2020 (14:00 CET).
IST Austria is number 3 among the world’s best research institutes in the normalized Nature Index ranking! For the first time, the size of the institutions in which the publishing researchers work is also taken into account.
We are hiring PhD students! For students wishing to enter the program in the fall of 2019, information about the admission process can be found here. Application deadline is January 8 2019. Apply now!
We do have open PhD, Postdoc, and software engineering positions available! In case you are attending SIGGRAPH this year, there will be an opportunity to meet with Bernd Bickel and/or Chris Wojtan in person. If you are interested, please contact the group leader in advance to schedule a meeting.
IST Austria made it to the Top10 European institutions for Computer Vision and Machine Learning (based on the number of publication at top venues over the last 10 years), according to csrankings.org. It’s also in the Top5 for Computer Graphics and for CS Theory.
