               Subject: Post-doc grantholder position in data exploration/visualization at the JRC-Ispra (Italy) of the European Commission


   I wish to let you know that we have just posted one post-doc level vacancy under the name

   GH30 G.4 JN 192993
   2013-IPR-G-30-000-1463           'Data visualization for container profiling'

   Deadline for responding is 15 April 2013

   Candidates interested in the published position must introduce an application form through the JRC recruitment web site  http://recruitment.jrc.ec.europa.eu/?type=GH. Only applications received through the application ESRA will be considered as valid.

   Here is the description of the specific post (extracted from the attachment):

   JRC's Contraffic technology for container monitoring and route-based risk analysis requires R&D in data
   analysis and data mining for very large sets of container shipments data. While such work at present
   aims at the provision of signals and risk indicators, we wish to develop further the data exploration
   The successful candidate will contribute to the further development of the Contraffic technology
   by developing and testing data mining and data visualization prototypes, featuring interactive tools for
   both raw data and analysis results, possibly complemented with GIS views. The longer term goal of
   this team effort is to develop, in collaboration with customs and security authorities, advanced tools to
   help control the flow of cargo containers through risk analysis.
   In addition to software prototypes, the grantholder will be expected to co-author technical reports, technical
   documentation and scientific publications as a result. He or she may also be called to contribute to
   collaborative research projects addressing issues related to securing the containerized supply chain.

   An engineer or scientist with a PhD degree in a relevant topic (e.g. data mining, data visualisation,
   visual business intelligence or other relevant topic) or a minimum of 5-years full-time relevant research
   experience after the first university degree giving access to PhD studies.
   The post requires a strong inclination for creative data exploration frameworks. Obviously, good knowledge of
   theory and practice with a wide range of data analysis and mining methodologies, data and analyses
   visualisation, solid experience with working with DBMSs is necessary. Very good hands-on analytical
   skills (e.g. with Matlab) and presentation capacity is required. Previous experience with large data projects
   or business intelligence applications will be an advantage.
   The position requires very good knowledge of oral and written English and the capacity to work independently
   and to meet deadlines effectively.

   Thank you,

   Thomas Barbas
