Postdoctoral Fellowship in Social Data Visualization, Personal Visual Analytics, and/or Visualization on Large Displays



The Innovations in Visualization (InnoVis) Research Group at the University of Calgary is inviting applications for a
post-doctoral fellowship.   The successful candidate will work closely with Dr. Sheelagh Carpendale and other faculty
and researchers in the Visual and Interactive Research Group.


The required background includes a PhD in Computer Science (or its 
equivalent). A research focus of information visualization, visual 
analytics, graphics and/or human computer interaction are preferred. 
Good programming skills and experience in empirical research, either 
quantitative or qualitative are considered assets. The successful 
candidate will have the opportunity to develop their research skills in 
all aspects including innovation, realization, evaluation, publication, 
and presentation. Ideal candidates will have a proven track record that 
demonstrates high-quality independent research. Of particular interest 
are candidates with interests in collaborative information 
visualization, social visualization, personal visual analytics, and 
visualization on large displays. The position will be located in the 
Interactions Laboratory, a rich community of students, researchers and 
faculty that specialize in many aspects of Information Visualization and 
Human Computer Interaction.


An immediate start date is preferable but negotiable since the candidate's PhD must have been successfully defended.
The appointments of one or two years duration are possible.
