We are looking for a skilled and motivated Postdoctoral Research Scientist with expertise in haptic perception. The chosen candidate will be part of a highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities. The goal of the project is to understand how the touch of a virtual object enables compelling perceptual experiences in VR and AR. The position is a fixed-term (postdoctoral) contract for 24 months and is focused on developing research plans to find perceptually-motivated solutions for haptic and multisensory rendering. The ideal candidate will collaborate with a team of engineers to investigate problems of haptic optimization, and will help in the design of novel interfaces that allow interaction with virtual objects.
