Postdoc Position in Interactive Visualization and Machine Learning

Tufts University, Medford, MA

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in the intersection
between interactive visualization and machine learning.

The postdoc position is funded by the DARPA D3M program with the goal of
developing visualization systems that enable users to effectively utilize
sophisticated machine learning techniques without having knowledge of the
mathematics and statistics behind the techniques. (

Our D3M team consists of Tufts (Remco Chang), Wisconsin (Michael Gleicher),
and Georgia Tech (John Stasko and Alex Endert). The postdoc researcher will
be primarily located at Tufts University (which is located in the Boston
area) and will work closely with the teams at Wisconsin and Georgia Tech.
Some travel to DC (where DARPA is located) and to Wisconsin and Georgia
Tech is expected.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in developing interactive
visualization systems and some knowledge of machine learning. Further, the
candidate is expected to possess leadership and management skills (to
coordinate between the three universities) and strong communication skills.

Expected starting date is May 2017 but is negotiable. The D3M program is
scheduled for 4 years and the length of the position is negotiable but
subject to continued funding.

Note that there is no citizenship requirement for this position. Candidates
outside of the US are encouraged to apply.

Tufts University is located in the Boston area -- it is two stops away on
the subway to Harvard and two additional stops away from MIT. Boston is
quickly becoming a hub for visualization research including but not limited
to research activities at Harvard, MIT, Google, Tufts, Northeastern, WPI,
Brown, UMass, UMass Dartmouth, Smith, and New Hampshire. The postdoc
researcher is encouraged to take advantage of the Boston area by
collaborating and building relationships with these nearby universities.

Interested applicants should send an email to Remco Chang (
remco at cs.tufts.edu) that includes a CV and an optional research statement.
