Student’s Corner


¿Do you want to join us?

GIlab is a research group with a high scientific level. Working with us, you can learn the latest techniques used in videogames and scientific visualization. We are looking for creative people, having capacities to work in group. We offer the possibility to work in our group doing an undergraduate project or as a PhD Student. You will work in interesting subjects, that you will find useful in your professional career. If you are interested, feel free to contact us.

PhD Students

Our department offers a PhD program in software (requirements can be found in the webpage of the program). The student can develop a thesis related with any of the research topics of the group. All nationalities are welcome!

Also, there is the possibility to apply for various grants:

  • FI grants (Researcher Training) from the Government of Catalonia.
  • FPU grants (University Teachers Training) from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
  • FPI grants (Research Personnel Training) from the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.
  • FI IQUC grants (Quality Doctoral Programme Researcher Training) from the Government of Catalonia.
  • UdG grants (Research Fellow) from the University of Girona.

These grants generally cover a period of 4 years. The grant holder will be affiliated to our department through our research group and will be collaborating in a research project. Accepting the grant implies full-time dedication to the grant research activity and it is incompatible with other contracts and/or grants. Remuneration made through monthly payments (the amount varies according to the year and the type of grant) will be included. The grant holders will be considered as in training University academic staff, enjoying the same rights and assuming the same duties as other academic staff. The University is under no obligation to offer a contract at the end of the grant period.

Grant applicants should hold advanced degrees and be registered or intending to do so in doctoral courses in the University of Girona. Applicants must have a grade point average of at least 1.60 (subject to variation, but generally 1.60) calculated according to Ministry of Education regulations. For applicants who have graduated from universities outside Spain, the documentation provided must be translated into Spanish or any ofthe other official languages of Spain. They must also provide official recognition of equivalence of the degree to a corresponding Spanish degree or, failing that, provide proof of admission to a doctoral programme. The documentation required to calculate the grade point average should contain information required for conversion to the decimal system used in Spain. In other words, reference should be made to the maximum and minimum grades given in the system of evaluation and to the minimum passing grade.

Undergraduate Projects

Undergraduate students can make their projects with us. The topic of the project must be related with any of the research areas of GIlab: videogames, medical imaging, scientific visualization, global illumination, object recognition, viewpoint selection, computational aesthetics, and e-learning.

The Spanish Ministry of Education and Science, and the Government of Catalunya offer different programs to promote the recruitment of PhDs into post-doctoral research work.
