Applications are invited for a new research post to start on 1st April 2013, or as soon thereafter as practical. The post is at post-doctoral level and will involve the development of specialised techniques and tools with two main motivations: completing research tasks as specified in research projects on which Centre for Computer Graphics and Visualisation (CCGV) is currently engaged and developing novel research relevant to the priorities of CCGV to support and broaden the future development of its research activities.
CCGV is currently involved in 5 European projects, having been involved in 29 such projects in recent years. The Centre has active involvement with researchers in more than 20 countries, world-wide, including Stanford, Oxford and Zhejiang Universities, UCL, ETHZ, etc. As a result of recent project successes and with some further internal investment, CCGV is undertaking a significant expansion programme. This post will bring its strength to 8 full-time researchers, with further appointments to be made in the immediate future.
CCGV researchers work closely as a team, sharing tasks within the overall work programme according to their strengths and capabilities. We particularly value the supportive environment provided to the researchers by this approach.
General topics in which we are interested cover Visual Analytics, medical visualisation, visualisation in emerging environments (cloud computing, mobile devices, etc.) and volume graphics. Skills that will be particularly welcome include analytics for text mining, ontology and its visualization and GPU or parallel graphics programming, though graphical expertise in other areas could also be helpful.
