*TWO PHD FELLOWSHIPS IN COLOUR AND APPEARANCE MEASUREMENT*

The Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering 
(http://www.ntnu.edu/ie) at the /Norwegian University of Science and 
Technology/ (NTNU) has 2 vacancies for positions as PhD fellow within 
the field of Colour and Appearance Measurement, at the Department of 
Computer Science (IDI) (http://www.ntnu.edu/idi).

Both positions are hosted at /The Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing 
Laboratory/ (Colourlab, http://www.colourlab.no) in Gjøvik, Norway, and 
funded by the Research Council of Norway in the FRINATEK Toppforsk 
project /Measuring and Understanding Visual Appearance/ (MUVApp, 
http://www.colourlab.no/muvapp). The MUVApp project, led by Professor 
Jon Y. Hardeberg, aims at developing new knowledge on how humans 
perceive the visual appearance of materials, objects, and scenes, and to 
develop new methodologies for measuring and communicating visual 
appearance and appearance-related material and object properties.

*PhD Fellowship 1: Measurement and modelling of appearance*
The visual appearance of materials is a complex phenomenon, which 
incorporates a number of different attributes such as perceived colour, 
gloss, texture and sub-surface effects such as scattering. Recent work 
in this field has enabled a move from the study of individual attributes 
in isolation to consideration of total appearance. The research 
challenge is to develop integrated methods of measuring appearance, 
together with suitable models, that can accurately predict the visual 
appearance of a material surface under different viewing conditions. The 
PhD fellow will work with state of the art instruments, develop and 
extend appearance models from physical measurements, and where necessary 
develop new measurement methods. The fellow will carry out her/his 
research under supervision from Professor Phil Green, Associate 
Professor Peter Nussbaum, and in collaboration with Dr. Gaël Obein from 
CNAM, France.

*PhD Fellowship 2: Image statistics for visual material appearance*
The visual appearance of materials is a complex phenomenon, which 
incorporates a number of different attributes such as perceived colour, 
gloss, texture and sub-surface effects such as scattering. The PhD 
fellow will work on image statistics for material appearance, with the 
goal of describing material appearance through image statistics, and 
validating the results through psychometric scaling experiments and 
material samples. The fellow will carry out her/his research under 
supervision from Professor Jon Yngve Hardeberg, Associate Professor 
Marius Pedersen, and in collaboration with Professor Karl Gegenfurtner 
from Justus-Liebig Universität Giessen, Germany. 

The positions are for three years full time or potentially extended to 
four years with teaching duties, and remunerated according to Norwegian 
regulations (in the range of gross 50-55 000 USD per year). For more 
information about the positions, and to apply (before April 30, 2017),

Jon Y. Hardeberg
