2019-01904 - Post-Doctoral Research Visit F/M Open postdoctoral position at MFX team

Contract type : Public service fixed-term contract

Level of qualifications required : PhD or equivalent

Fonction : Post-Doctoral Research Visit


The recruited candidate will join the diverse and dynamic research environment of Inria Nancy Grand-Est. We host with a fully equipped fabrication lab, and have ongoing collaboration in material science, robotics, and the medical domain. Funding will be provided to attend conferences and workshops.


We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher interested in algorithmic problems at the intersection of Computer Graphics and Additive Manufacturing (AM). In particular, we are focusing on problems arising in the entire chain of modeling and processing for AM, with an emphasis on algorithms tailored for small-scale and complex geometries. The recruited postdoc will have complete freedom to explore topics within this line of research.

Our methodologies of choice are rooted in procedural synthesis methods that can automatically create details within parts, under user control, such as to achieve the desired functionality after the shapes are fabricated. As the models we create are highly detailed, we develop specialized algorithms to visualize them, interact with their properties, and process their geometries before fabrication. For a glimpse of recent publications of our team following that line of research see https://mfx.loria.fr/publications/
