In the Visualization and MultiMedia Lab, Department of Computer Science 
at the University of Zürich (UZH), there is a new open position for a 
research assistant in PhD program in computer science with a focus on 
foveated perceptual levels-of-detail (LODs) in geographic feature 

We anticipate the project to have three phases: conceptual development, 
software implementation and an empirical user evaluation. The empirical 
evaluation phase will be hosted at the Geographic Information 
Visualization and Analysis unit at the UZH Department of Geography, and 
will be advised by Dr. Çöltekin.

The project requires strong interest not only in visualization and 
graphics but also in cartography, perception and in experimental user 
studies. Furthermore, good software programming skills are required as 
well as a strong interest and ability in learning new mathematical 
methods and complex software frameworks is highly recommended, as the 
targeted research project also builds on previously developed results 
and geo-visualization frameworks. Good C++, 3D graphics and geometry 
programming skills are needed.

A Master degree in computer science or closely related area with a 
strong CS component from a re- search university is required to enter 
the PhD program of UZH. A prior focus on visualization, graphics, 
imaging or geography, as well as experience in programming is also required.
