Post-doc Positions in Information Visualization

The Visualization, Imaging and Computer Graphics Laboratory (VICG) of the
Institute of Mathematical and Computer Sciences - University of Sao Paulo -
Sao Carlos/SP - Brazil  invites applications for two post-doctoral
positions to
work in the project: "Challenges in Exploratory Visualization of
Multidimensional Data:
Paradigms, Scalability and Applications".

The project, funded by Fapesp (Sao Paulo State research funding agency),
at advancing the state-of-the-art research in scientific and abstract data
with emphasis in the processing and handling of high-dimensional,
multimodal time-varying
data. The novel paradigms to be developed shall provide advanced visual
metaphors for
visualizations based on multidimensional projection and phylogenetic trees,
allowing for
improved understanding and exploration of many types of data, including
text, image, biological,
music collections and nanoescale sensing data. An additional goal is to
investigate data
visualization and visual exploration methods suitable for execution on
portable devices.

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow! Curiosity,
open-mind, creativity, persistence,
and collaborative-work capability are the key personal skills we target. A
Ph.D. in
computer science, applied mathematics, or related areas is required, with
experience and high quality publications. Candidates should have advanced
programming skills
and a solid background in mathematics.  Portuguese speaking is not required
but fluency in
English is mandatory.

Applicants are invited to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae
(including their full publication
record), as well as reference letters (at least two) by email to
Dr. Luis Gustavo Nonato - gnonato at icmc.usp.br.
Applications will be open until September 15th.
