*Ph.D. in Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality at MIXRLab at NJIT*

Applications are invited from candidates interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in
Informatics doing Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed Reality (VR, AR, and XR)
research at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).

 The students will be supervised by Dr. Margarita Vinnikov (
margaritavinnikov.com) and will be part of  Multidisciplinary Interaction,
Machine Intelligence, and XR Research (MIXR) Lab.

 Topics of interest would include the design, development, and evaluation
of novel:  XR and cross-model (visual, audio, and/or haptic) user
experiences; Gaze-contingent displays for gaming and social interaction
applications;  New techniques for improving navigation in XR (walking,
driving, and/or flying); New approaches of the head and body tracking for
XR interaction.

The candidate should have excellent programming skills in C/C++, C#, or
Phyton. Knowledge of quantitative analysis methods and body and eye
tracking techniques are a plus. Prior research experience (with
publications) is desirable, and so are prototyping and 3D modeling

Each candidate will be fully funded for at least four years ($30,000/year),
have conference travel support, and receive a tuition waiver. This sums up
to $220,000+ in total funding for each Informatics Ph.D. student.

New Jersey Institute of Technology is a Research 1 university located in
Newark, NJ, a 20-minute train ride from Manhattan. It is a 3rd
Fastest-growing University in the US. The Ying Wu College of Computing
(YWCC) is the largest college of computing in the New York metro area. As a
result, 25% of all high-tech employees in New Jersey trained at NJIT.

Applicants should follow the formal procedure for application on the NJIT
Informatics Department website (
https://informatics.njit.edu/phd-information-systems/) but are encouraged
to informally discuss details about the position with Dr. Vinnikov at
vinnikov at njit.edu before application. When sending informal inquiries,
please provide a CV and a brief description of why you are interested in
this position.
