== PhD Fellowships in Visualization (up to two positions) at the University
of Bergen, Norway ==

The visualization research group (http://www.ii.UiB.no/vis/) at the
Department of Informatics of the University of Bergen, Norway (UiB), is
seeking motivated and capable new PhD students who wish to pursue
cutting-edge visualization research in a stimulating and dynamic
international environment.

Currently there are vacancies for PhD fellowships (up to two positions) in
the MetaVis project led by Prof. Stefan Bruckner (
http://www.ii.uib.no/vis/team/bruckner) and funded by the Research Council
of Norway. The project aims to study the space of visualizations itself and
how it can be efficiently and effectively navigated. The goal is to develop
interactive visual methods to enable users in choosing appropriate
visualization techniques for particular types of data and tasks. The topic
for the thesis can be chosen within this broad range to suit the strengths
and interests of the PhD candidate.

We are looking for motivated and skilled individuals with a strong interest
in data visualization to join the project team. Suitable candidates should:

- have completed (or be close to finishing) their master's degree in
visualization, computer graphics, or human-computer interaction
- have excellent programming skills (very good GPU programming skills, in
particular, are a plus)
- have very good written and oral English communication skills
- be able to work independently and in a structured manner

We offer:

- an international and professionally challenging working environment
- opportunities for research exchanges with collaborating labs
- full health and welfare benefits including enrolment in the Norwegian
Public Service Pension Fund
- a 4-year contract, with a yearly starting salary of NOK 435K (approx. EUR
47K / USD 51K)

*) Online application (deadline: June 18, 2017)

*) Leaflet
