The Algorithms and Complexity Group at TU Wien
(http://www.ac.tuwien.ac.at) invites applications for two open
positions (one postdoc, one PhD student) in the FWF project
"Human-Centered Algorithm Engineering: Graph and Map Visualization".
The project is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and deals with
algorithmic problems in graph visualization and cartography that
tightly integrate human expertise into the algorithmic optimization
process. It combines aspects of algorithm engineering, information
visualization, and human-computer interaction. The intended starting
date of both positions is September 1, 2018 (with some flexibility).

Applicants for the _postdoc position_ should have a doctoral degree in
computer science (or a related field) with a focus on visualization
algorithms, visual analytics, human-computer interaction, or some other
project-related area, as proven by the publication track record. A
strong research interest in combining algorithmic techniques and human
interaction in theory and practice is necessary.

Applicants for the _PhD student position_ should have an excellent
Master degree (or equivalent) in computer science or a related subject
with a focus on algorithmics or algorithm engineering, good programming
skills and a strong research interest in human-in-the-loop
visualization algorithms, computational cartography, or graph drawing.

We offer a stimulating and collaborative working environment in a
successful international research group on algorithms and complexity at
TU Wien, one of the top-ranking universities in computer science in
Europe. In 2018, Vienna has been awarded as the world's city with the
highest quality of living for the ninth year in a row.

We start screening the applications on June 1, 2018. To express your 
interest, please send at least a short email with your CV by that date.
