Open Software Developer (ESR) position in European Training Network EVOCATION for light field displays rendering techniques

Holografika offers an ESR position in collaboration with University of Rostock. The fellow will go beyond the current state of applicability by way of the integration and distributed parallel implementation of industry standard scene-graph and real-time ray-tracing based rendering concepts, which were not originally designed for distributed concurrent rendering. Research questions will include how to improve throughput of such a system and how to apply, adapt and invent existing and novel rendering techniques for light field displays on GPU clusters.
