This Postdoc position will be part of a project in collaboration with the Sailing Innovation Centre (sailinginnovationcentre.nl), whose goal is to create excitement for the sailing sport by involving modern technologies.
A sailing athlete has to consider complex information; the boat, the wind, the sea currents and more to decide how to act and react. While athletes are trained in combining these factors, for external observers, their decisions are not always clear. Further, many of the factors that went into the decision are not directly available and it is quite difficult to follow a competition without the necessary background knowledge. The goal of this project is to make the information understandable and accessible to a larger audience to improve the engagement of the observers.
The postdoc will contribute with new and exciting ways to interact with the sport that will also lead to cutting-edge research in Computer Graphics, Visualization, or other related fields. The candidate will actively contribute in designing and developing the appropriate solution and will have freedom in choosing the methodology and technology that best fits his research background and ambitions, such as, Visualization methods, Virtual and Augmented Reality technologies, new Interaction modalities, Simulations, Game technologies, among others.
The project is supported by many partners, including several companies providing streaming models and sailing-related data via sensors and the candidate will work closely with a PhD student, who is investigating data models to discover patterns in order to improve training analysis. The work will further be developed in a practical setting with strong collaboration with the sailors, coaches, and other members of the Sailing Innovation Center. The developed research is intended to be employed in future sailing competitions by the Dutch Sailing Team.
TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
