                 Postdoc and PhD positions

Several temporary positions, both doctoral and post-doctoral,
are now available within a new EU research training network
called MINGLE (Multiresolution in Geometric Modelling).
These positions will normally be between 6 months and two
years in duration and will provide an excellent opportunity
to gain research experience abroad.

The main objective of the project is to train young European
researchers, both in mathematics and computer science, in
various aspects of multiresolution in geometric modelling.
Relevant research topics include: hierarchical decomposition
of triangulations, generation of smooth surfaces from irregular
triangle meshes, thinning, decimation, compression of meshes,
remeshing, wavelets, application of multiresolution
representations to computer graphics, and data structures
and algorithms for storage and manipulation.

MINGLE will run from 2000 to 2003 and involves research teams
from the following nine partners:
