The Visualization Research Center at the University of Stuttgart (VISUS), Germany, is looking to fill a position for a PhD student:

PhD Research Position in Computer Science (f/m/d)
(German Federal pay scale TV-L 13, full-time, temporary)
The position is available from July 1, 2022, or by agreement.

Visualization of Multi-field Processes in Porous Media

The position is funded by the DFG (the German Research Foundation) through the Collaborative Research Center "Interface-Driven Multi-Field Processes in Porous Media - Flow, Transport and Deformation". This CRC 1313 is an interdisciplinary research center at the University of Stuttgart with 18 individual research projects also involving many international partners.

More than 50 researchers collaborate to acquire the fundamental understanding of how interfaces affect flow, transport and deformation processes in porous-media systems. This involves the challenging tasks of quantifying how the dynamics of fluid-fluid and fluid-solid interfaces in porous-media systems are affected by pore geometry, heterogeneity and fractures, and of developing mathematical and computational models that describe the effective behavior of porous-media systems including the effects of interfaces that occur on much smaller spatial scales.

The visualization project D01 aims at developing visualization techniques for the interactive investigation of phenomena that occur in and around porous media. It particularly focuses on developing comparative feature-based visualization methods to relate data from different simulations and experiments.

We are looking for a PhD candidate who will develop specific visualization approaches for data resulting from projects within CRC, generalize them to be applicable to a wider class of use cases, and combine them into a flexible porous-media visualization framework that can be customized by the researcher. In the long term, the project aims at bridging the widely acknowledged gap between the techniques used by domain scientists and the approaches available from visualization research. An open source toolbox of advanced visual analysis techniques for porous-media problems will provide the foundation to support comparative analysis of benchmark results and detailed exploration of where and why deviations actually occur to gain deeper insights into the respective phenomena.

- M.Sc. (or equivalent) in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics or neighboring disciplines with above-average results
- Applicants are expected to possess a high level of proficiency in written and spoken English
- High level of programming skills
- Active participation in center activities (give presentations at seminars, follow courses, assist in the organization)

Part of CRC 1313 is an integrated research training group, where specific short courses, workshops and a summer school are organized to help the doctoral researchers in their training.
VIS and VISUS are vibrant places for internationally recognized research in visualization, visual analytics, VR&AR, computer vision and HCI offering great opportunities for discussion and collaboration with many other researchers in a wide range of disciplines in an excellent technically-oriented university. The city of Stuttgart and its vicinity are well-known for providing an attractive, diverse, and open environment for work and live close to cultural highlights and recreational offers. Applicants will be offered a contract as full-time research assistant in the VIS or VISUS groups under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Ertl.

How to apply:
Questions can be directed to Dr. Guido Reina (Guido.Reina at visus.uni-stuttgart.de).
Please send your application including (1) cover letter, (2) complete CV, (3) list of publications,
(4) names and contact details of at least two references, and (5) education certificates (including transcripts of courses and grades)
