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),
aims at advancing the state-of-the-art research in scientific
and abstract data visualization, 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
key personal skills we target. A Ph.D. in computer science, applied
mathematics, or related areas is required, with demonstrated 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.
