PhD position: Visual Analysis in Data-driven Journalism
University of Vienna

We invite applicants for a PhD position in Visualization/
Human-Computer Interaction within the Visualization and Data Analysis
group at the University of Vienna. The successful applicant will join a
larger interdisciplinary research group with backgrounds in computing,
design, and journalism.

Like many other organizations, publishing houses and the news industry
are facing tremendous challenges making sense of the ever-growing amount
of information. A trend towards data-centric journalism aiming to deal
with these challenges has recently become popular under the term
“Data-driven Journalism” and is vividly discussed in discourses about
the future of journalism.

The successful applicant will explore how visual analysis methods
can support Data-driven Journalism. This will include working with a
diverse range of users to better understand how data is currently used
in journalism, and to design and evaluate novel visual analysis
solutions for Data-driven Journalism.

Review of applications will begin on November 21, 2014, and continue
until the position is filled.

Applicants should submit a CV, a two-page motivation statement, two
references, copies of university certificates, and a transcript to
Monika Gregor monika.gregor at univie.ac.at

Informal enquiries can be directed to Dr. Michael Sedlmair
