Two PhD student positions in Computer Science: HCI and Visualization



Respected Colleague

I am happy to announce two PhD student positions in Computer Science; both positions are in the area of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Visualization.

The first PhD position is part of the DIVA project, which is an Initial Training Network (ITN) funded by the EU within the 7th Framework Program. The people in this program are mostly Early-Stage European scientific Researchers who in the future will lead the development of novel Data Intensive Visualization and Analysis (DIVA) methodologies in data-driven science and technology application domains. It brings together six full partner institutions and eight associated partners from six countries.

The second PhD position is part of an industrial research project between i) Sectra AB, ii) the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) at Linkoping University, and iii) the t2i Lab at Chalmers. The objective of the project is to raise the usability for visualization of complex medical data sets through methods based on continuous adaptation to the tasks and cognitive processes of the end user. The proposed adaptation approach is intended to reduce the cognitive overload while retaining all relevant information and all interaction possibilities.

Both positions require an M.Sc. with excellent background in computer science and HCI, as well as strong mathematical skills and a good knowledge of computer graphics. Please pass this on to any good and motivated candidate in your department, or post it on your department news board. Both positions are linked from the news-section of: http://www.t2i.se/

With kind regards Morten Fjeld
PhD, Associate Professor
