Open PhD position


Currently, we are seeking a PhD candidate with a strong interest in physically-based simulation in the field of computer graphics.

Candidates should send their application containing a letter of motivation, CV, master and bachelor transcripts and further relevant certificates via email in pdf format to Prof. Dr. Jan Bender.



SPlisHSPlasH is our new open-source fluid simulator


SPlisHSPlasH is an open-source library for the physically-based simulation of fluids. The simulation in this library is based on the Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) method which is a popular meshless Lagrangian approach to simulate complex fluid effects.
