PhD/Early Stage Researcher position in Computer Science

At the department of computer science in Gjøvik, we are looking for a PhD candidate in individual colour image optimisation.

About the position

Department of Computer Science (IDI) in Gjøvik invites applications for a 4-year fulltime PhD/Early Stage Researcher position in Computer Science. The position will be based at the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory.

The position is a part of the project «ICVIO – Individual Colour Vision based Image Optimisation», funded by the Research Council of Norway over the IKTPLUSS programme. The primary goal of the project is to recover and predict quantities of individual human colour perception in order to enable digital image optimisation methods that are uniquely linked to individual colour perception of images, encompassing deficient, anomalous and normal colour vision.

The main task of the PhD student in the project will be twofold. Firstly, to uniquely link individual cone fundamentals of human vision (developed in another part of the project) with a colour metric that will be based on a mathematical model whose geometry comprehensively describes the perceptual dimension. Secondly, to develop perceptually meaningful colour image optimisation techniques that facilitate the prediction of perceptual colour content in images between individuals with different colour vision.

The position reports to the head of department.

Job description

The candidate is expected to work towards combining knowledge from fundamental colour science, differential geometry, computational science and image processing to define new methods for individualised image optimisation, and to publish the results in scientific journals and conferences. Over the four years, the candidate will serve 25% of the time as a research or teaching assisitant for the department. During the four-year period, the candidate will spend one six-month period at the University of East Anglia.

Main supervisor: prof. Ivar Farup (NTNU).

Co-supervisors: prof. Graham Finlayson (University of East Anglia, UK) and prof. Edoardo Provenzi (Université de Bordeaux, France).
