I am looking for a great postdoc in the area of uncertainty visualization to work with me directly at the Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute (details below).

Given that there are very few students who have expertise in uncertainty visualization, I am happy to consider someone who has a strong visualization background who is interested in pursuing research in uncertainty visualization.

Uncertainty Visualization Postdoc Position
Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute
University of Utah


The Scientific Computing and Imaging (SCI) Institute at the University of Utah invites applications for one post-doctoral researcher for interdisciplinary work in uncertainty visualization. The successful candidate will perform research in uncertainty visualization and work closely with SCI Institute researchers and external collaborators to integrate research into SCI Institute software applications and apply this software to compelling problems in science and engineering.

The SCI Institute is seeking a highly talented and committed individual with a demonstrated ability to work well with minimal supervision in a multi-disciplinary research environment. The successful candidate will contribute to the Institute's world-class research and software development in scientific visualization and have the opportunity to develop their research, publication, and presentation skills under mentorship from established faculty investigators.

Non-Technical Skills: Excellent oral and written communication skills are mandatory. A willingness to collaborate in a highly diverse, multi-disciplinary environment is also essential.

Benefits: The University of Utah offers a very competitive benefits package.

Comments: Please apply to the University of Utah Division of Human Resources. Please include the names of at least three references along with a curriculum vitae and list of publications.

Start date: Immediate.

The initial appointment will be for a one-year period, with the possibility of an extension based upon performance and availability of funding.

The University of Utah, an AA/EO employer, encourages applications from women and minorities, and provides reasonable accommodation to the known disabilities of applicants and employees.

The SCI Institute: The SCI Institute is a world-class research institute located within the new Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus. We are a highly dynamic, driven group of over 170 faculty, staff, and students.

The overarching goals of the SCI Institute's scientific computing research are to create new techniques, tools, and systems, by which scientists may solve problems affecting various aspects of human life. We believe that to advance the state-of-the-art and create meaningful computational solutions for such complex systems, one needs to advance research in a number of areas within scientific computing, including: visualization, simulation, and modeling.

Furthermore, for this algorithmic and software research to have a real impact outside of scientific computing and computer science, these components must be integrated with data and application specific knowledge within intuitive software systems, problem solving environments (PSEs) or computational workbenches.

The SCI Institute presents a highly challenging, collaborative work environment that can be deeply rewarding for the right individual. Further information is available at www.sci.utah.edu.


   * Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related field
   * Expert knowledge in scientific visualization, particularly with applications to uncertainty visualization.
   * Strong mathematical skills/knowledge.
   * Advanced programming skills in C++, OpenGL, and scripting languages
   * Experience with large software development projects is a plus

Equal Employment Opportunity

The University of Utah is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Upon request, reasonable accommodations in the application process will be provided to individuals with disabilities.
