The visualization research group at the University of Bergen, Norway (UiB)
has an opening for a 4-year
PhD fellowship in visualization. The application deadline is July 10, 2013.

The position is not associated with a specific research project, which
provides considerable freedom and
flexibility for creative work. Research topics will be jointly defined by
the student and his or her advisor.
We therefore seek a highly-motivated individual with interest in the
visualization of scientific data.
Successful applicants should have an excellent background in visualization,
human-computer interaction,
and/or computer graphics, and should have completed their master’s thesis
on a related topic.
Furthermore, very good programming skills, in particular with respect to
GPU programming (OpenGL,
OpenCL, CUDA, WebGL, etc.) and a good command of the English language are a
requirement. The
starting salary is on grade 50 (code 1017/pay framework 20.8) in the Civil
Service pay grade table;
currently NOK 421,100 (approx. EUR 55,000) gross per year. For further
information about the position,
please contact Prof. Stefan Bruckner (stefan.bruckner at uib.no).

Applications will be solicited exclusively via the jobbnorge website:

The University of Bergen, Norway (UiB) has approximately 14,500 enrolled
students and 3,200 faculty and
staff. Six faculties cover most of the traditional university disciplines.
Within the faculties there are 40
different specialized departments, multi-disciplinary research centers, and
institutes. The University is
engaged in the European Union’s Framework programs for research and
technological development and
has been designated as a European Research Infrastructure and a Research
Training Site in several
scientific fields. Since 1997 more than 500 European researchers
(professors, senior researchers, post
docs and PhD candidates) have visited Bergen on EU grants, making UiB one
of the most international
universities, setting out to attract both established and junior scientists
to contribute to research teams
and work in multidisciplinary research groups. Further information:

The Department of Informatics at UiB is a dynamic international
environment. The visualization research
group was established in 2006 and focuses on new solutions for the
effective and efficient visualization of
large and complex data from measurements (e.g., from medical imaging or
from seismic/sonar sensors),
computational simulation (e.g., from computational fluid dynamics), or from
analytic modeling (e.g., in
the form of differential equations) for the purpose of data exploration,
analysis, and presentation.
Despite being a relatively young group, the recent ten-year evaluation of
all 62 informatics research
groups in Norway conducted by an international evaluation panel on behalf
of Norway’s Research
Council, found that the group’s "(...) accomplishments made so far are
excellent." and concluded with an
overall assessment of "very good to excellent". Further information:

Bergen is Norway's second largest city with over 260,000 inhabitants and is
located in the county of
Hordaland on the south-western coast of Norway. Known as the "gateway to
the fjords", Bergen is
surrounded by spectacularscenery. As one of the offices ofthe Hanseatic
League, Bergen was for several
hundred years the center of prosperous trade between Norway and the rest of
Europe. Today, Bergen is a
lively and vibrant city with an international flair. Every semester the
city with its university and colleges
are proud and enthusiastic to welcome students from all over the world.
Bergen is one of the most
popular student cities in Scandinavia with 30,000 students in many
different educational institutions. Its
international atmosphere, together with the fact that Norway has been voted
#1 in standard of living by
the UNDP’s Human Development Index for several years, make Bergen a very
attractive place for life and
study. Further information: http://www.visitbergen.com/en
