Research associate/developer position in the field of XR/VR design and implementation

For the immersive visualization and evaluation of research data from the network and publicly accessible data, virtual environments shall be created in a game engine for the use in virtual reality. To design and create these simplified digital representations of real-world environments, existing data pipelines and interfaces have to be revised and newly developed. This includes the implementation of high-resolution data collected during (marine) campaigns by the project consortium consisting of different academic and non-academic partners. These virtual environments will be used, evaluated, and adapted for a participatory approach for the stakeholder interaction. The aim is to develop virtual reality into a robust method for stakeholder interaction and to support the creation of the living-lab of MULTI-MAREX.
