We, the BMW Group, offer you an interesting and various phd position in the area of generative design for facet-based surfaces.
What awaits you?
Methodic development of facet-based geometry interacting with its properties: Properties: i.e. angles, proportions, size, space availability for fillets or offsets.
Facet forms: starting with triangles, extended to n-sided factettes in a later phase of the research.
Dimensionality: on surfaces at first and extended into 3D volumes in a later phase of the research.
Interaction and compatibility with BMW generative design methods in grasshopper.
Implementation of innovative design models of parametric and generative/algorithmic form-finding in Rhino/Grasshopper or Catia V5 across all phases of the shape-finding process.
Support of the Generative Design Team in tool and method development.
What you should bring along?
Master Degree in mathematics, Computational Design, Physics, Computer Science or Software Development.
Knowledge in one or more of the following areas: Programming languages C#- and Python, simulation and optimization methods, CAS/Strak free-form surface design, manufacturing processes, McNeel Rhino/Grasshopper.
Fluent German and English skills.
