The German Aerospace Center DLR has a dual mandate as the national research
center for aeronautics and space, and as the space agency of the German
federal government.


For our institute Data Science in Jena, Germany, we wish to recruit a



Computer Scientist in Visual Analytics


Software Research for Visualization and Analysis of Big Data



Your Mission:


We are looking for computer scientists to investigate efficient frameworks
and methods for Visual Analytics in the domain of space, aeronautics,
transportation, and energy. Your mission would be to contribute to the
Visual Analytics group by investigating and developing new analysis and
visualization approaches:


- Design and development of a Visual Analytics module which should become an
extension to DLR’s geographical 3D rendering system (in cooperation with the
DLR institute Simulation and Software Technology).

- Integration of Data Mining methods (mainly contributed by the DLR
institute for DLR Remote Sensing Technology Institute).

- Investigation of advanced approaches for 2D and 3D information
visualization applications.

- Development of domain-driven scaling methods for temporal and spatial

- Assessment of data quality and uncertainty in derived data products.

- Efficient coupling of data management and data mining with interfaces for
user interaction.

- Research on methods for multi-user systems and multi-touch displays with
respect to cognitive aspects.

- Evaluation of the overall system with respect to efficiency, user
acceptance, and risk of misinterpretations.

- Development of a distributed and parallel architecture with the
integration of supercomputer resources.

- Development of a web-based interface for citizen science.

- Integration of efficient rendering methods on graphics cards.


In Jena, a new DLR institute will be stablished. If you love to work in
software development and want to become a member of complete new team, we
would be happy to receive your application. We are looking for highly
motivated people with the ambition to initiate new projects with other DLR
institutes as well as research institutions located in Thuringia, Germany.
We are offering an environment where people can bring in own ideas. We
expect that new projects are inspired and advanced methods are investigated.
Part of your job will also be the presentation of your research on
international conferences and in scientific journals. We are offering an
exciting, friendly, and flexible working environment which also provides
part time.


Required Qualifications:


- You have an excellent Master in Computer Science or in a similar research

- You are an expert in object-oriented software development in C++.

- You possess a profound knowledge in Computer Graphics with OpenGL / WebGL.

- You knowledge about methods from Information Visualization and Visual
Analytics are substantial.

- You are a team player, creative, and able to work independent and

- You are fluent in spoken and written English (knowledge of German is an


Following knowledge and skills would be useful:

- Solid training in mathematics, data mining, and machine learning.

- Basis understanding of cognitive science and human-machine interaction.

- Experiences with parallelization techniques (like MPI, OpenMP, CUDA) and
distributed systems (e.g. Apache Hadoop).

- Software Engineering methods (Continuous Integration, Git, etc.).
