December 16, 2021 — January 15, 2022


Research Assistant (Back End Developer) at Carleton Immersive Media Studio

We are currently seeking people to fill positions (part-time or full-time) as developers in the
Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) lab. If you are interested in a position at CIMS, please
submit your CV and portfolio/link by email to Professor Stephen Fai, Director, CIMS.

Contact: Professor Stephen Fai
Professor, Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism
Director, Carleton Immersive Media Studio

Background & Description of Organization:
Carleton Immersive Media Studio (CIMS) is a Carleton University Research Centre (CURC)
affiliated with the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism and the Department of Civil and
Environmental Engineering. Our research addresses the development of hybrid workflows that
both acknowledge the invisible measures of architecture and animate the visible world of
construction. Our work uses established and emerging digital technologies to explore and
support architectural rehabilitation, heritage conservation and built-asset management. We are
advocates for the thoughtful and critical integration of computing and information technologies
within existing cultural and disciplinary contexts — eschewing the evangelical rhetoric that often
surrounds “the digital”.

Over the past decade, CIMS has developed an international reputation — working with public,
private, and not-for-profit partners — to create a culturally rich and diverse portfolio of projects.
We are engaged in five streams of research: Digitization, Building Information Modelling (BIM),
Simulation, Digitally Assisted Fabrication, and Digitally Assisted Storytelling. Information on
past and current CIMS projects is available online at .

Job Description: Research Assistant (Back End Developer)
The successful applicant will work with a multidisciplinary team in one or more of the five
research streams identified above. Close collaboration with content teams will be expected for
the development of compelling and innovative digital experiences that may include AR, VR, MR,
and more traditional web-based formats.

The successful applicant will have an array of communications, programming and design skills:
Demonstrated communication skills with both non-programmers and programmers
Demonstrated ability to work independently and in a team environment
Demonstrated knowledge of basic programming concepts (functions, arrays, lists)
Working knowledge of SQL databases and web servers
Working knowledge of C++, Java, PHP
Experience with command line interfaces (Ubuntu, Apache)
Experience with source control (Git, Bitbucket, SourceTree)
Familiarity with Docker
Familiarity with game engines (Unreal, Unity) a plus
Familiarity with computer modeling and animation a plus

This position can be performed remotely within Canada, using a remote desktop connection provided by CIMS. Successful candidates who elect to work in the CIMS lab on campus must comply with Carleton Covid-19 policies at all times.  Successful candidates must be eligible for federal security clearance at the Reliability level.
