We are seeking candidates for a 1-year position (Assegno di ricerca) in 
Computer Science at University of Genoa, Italy, in the field of 
Human-Computer Interaction in AR and VR.

Title of the Research: Techniques for interaction in virtual, augmented 
and mixed reality environments

Application deadline: June 14th, 2018


The main aim of this research activity is to develop methods and 
techniques to build innovative
Augmented and Virtual Reality  applications, which allow people to 
achieve a natural interaction in such environments. In particular, the 
aim is to design and implement algorithms and techniques:

- to manipulate real objects, eventually sensorized to give haptic and 
force feedback, enriched by virtual contents. Part of the research 
activity could also be the design of such sensorized objects.
- to walk in enriched environments, where users can interact with both 
virtual and real objects on the ground plane;
- to visualize virtual contents by using wearable devices (optical or 
video see through) and spatial projection techniques.

In order to achieve effective and ecological interaction within such 
systems, specific real-time calibration and registration procedures 
should be implemented.

The activity will be carried on at the Dept. of Informatics, 
Bioengineering, Robotics, and Systems Engineering (DIBRIS), University 
of Genoa, Italy.

For further information please contact Dr. Manuela Chessa 
(manuela.chessa at unige.it)

A master degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Biomedical 
Engineering or equivalent is required. Although not mandatory, a PhD 
degree would be an add-on.
Fundamentals of Virtual and Augmented Reality, Computer Vision 
algorithms and tecnhiques for calibration, camera pose estimation, 
feature detection and tracking, and good skills in programming are required.

Annual gross salary € 23.250,00 . The position may be renewed for a 
second year.
