3D Animations and Interactive Virtual Reality of Animal Development and Evolution: Position for a Computer Graphics Scientist at the University of Geneva (Switzerland)

In the context of a multidisciplinary study combining mathematical modelling, physics-based numerical simulations, and biology, we offer one position for an outstanding, highly motivated, and creative computer scientist with Autodesk Maya and Unreal Engine 4 experience to produce animations, ultra-realistic interactive VR applications and educational software for teaching recently-discovered physical and biological processes generating Life’s complexity and diversity. These developments will be targeted to all levels of education and outreach, from the general public to university students to the physics-of-biology academic research community. Good written and verbal communication skills in the English language are mandatory.

Candidates must have a master's degree in computer science and strong expertise in:

  • Development and optimization of ultra-realistic VR graphics in Unreal Engine (and possibly Unity);
  • 3D modeling, point cloud and mesh processing, surface reconstruction, texturing and animation;
  • C/C++ and GPU programming and optimization of 3D graphics rendering.

Interests and skills in artificial life, evolutionary algorithms, deep-learning, neural networks, image processing/analysis, pattern recognition and robotics are useful additional assets.

Candidates must have a master's degree in computer science. The position is available at the level of a PhD student position or at the level of Research Associate (requiring a PhD  degree or at least 3 years of professional experience).

The University of Geneva (UNIGE) is world-renowned for its research and is among the top 1% best universities in the world. Research Scientists and PhD students are remunerated according to the standards of UNIGE, which are very generous when compared to other international programs.

Geneva is an international city occupying a privileged geographical situation with its beautiful lake and the close-by Alps.

Candidates must send their application — in the form of a single PDF file including a brief letter of interest, a CV, as well as contact information (not support letters) of two to three persons of reference — to: Prof. Michel Milinkovitch (michel.Milinkovitch@unige.ch).
