Interesting Opportunity for those interested in VR.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Hi there,
My name is Jim Cummings; I'm a faculty member in the College of Communication
here at BU and serve as Co-Director of the Communication Research Center.
I'm currently looking to hire an RA (or multiple, depending on hours) to create
novel virtual environments to be experienced in the Oculus Rift (commercial
version, rather than the previous DK2 model).Such environments would require
likely physics, interactivity, and some degree of 3D design skills (though
pre-existing art assets would likely be sufficient, rather than requiring
original sculpting).  I imagine experience with Unity will be quite useful,
though I'm also expecting that the RA might at some point be working with
WorldViz's Vizard platform (
http://www.worldviz.com/vizard-virtual-reality-software/).
I was wondering if any of the BUILDS crew would potentially be willing and able
to serve in this capacity.  Again, depending on skill set and hours available,
I'd be looking to hire 1 or 2 folks for the remainder of the semester (and
potentially into the Spring).
I'd be happy to provide more details or information to interested parties.
Many thanks,Jim
