The *UNH Space Science Center* (SSC - 
https://eos.unh.edu/space-science-center), *Center for Coastal and Ocean 
Mapping Joint Hydrographic Center* (CCOM/JHC - https://ccom.unh.edu), 
and *Data Visualization Research Lab* (DVRL - 
https://ccom.unh.edu/vislab/) are seeking a Post-Doctoral associate to 
develop visualizations of electromagnetic field and bathymetric data in 
virtual reality. Specific tasks include:

  * Design VR environments in Unity, augmenting prior art from the
    CCOM/JHC DVRL on interactive point-cloud manipulation and flow
  * Support local manipulation of streaming data from cloud-based
    bathymetric data processing algorithms
  * Implement and visualize reconstructions of electromagnetic field
  * Implement combined grid reconstructions, guidance statistics, and
    source point visualizations
  * Incorporate interactive features for the user, particularly with
    free-space manipulation tools (e.g., pairs of 6-DOF controllers)

In addition, this project contains a public outreach component and will 
support NASA press releases. The Post-Doc will work with local K-12 
schools to showcase science in VR as well as with the NASA Science 
Visualization Studio (SVS) to create visualizations for press release 
articles regarding the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission.

Questions regarding visualization components can be directed to DVRL’s 
Director, Thomas Butkiewicz (tbutkiewicz at ccom.unh.edu). Questions 
regarding bathymetric data processing components should be directed to 
CCOM’s Associate Director, Brian Calder (brc at ccom.unh.edu). Questions 
regarding the electromagnetic field reconstructions, public outreach, or 
press releases should be sent to SSC Professor Matthew Argall 
(matthew.argall at unh.edu).

This is a two-year appointment. Interested parties should send their 
resume and cover letter to matthew.argall at unh.edu.
