Post-doc Positions in Information Visualization - Brazil


Post-doc Positions in Information Visualization

The Visualization, Imaging and Computer Graphics Laboratory (VICG) of the Institute of Mathematical and Computer Sciences - 
University of Sao Paulo -  Sao Carlos/SP - Brazil  invites applications for two post-doctoral positions to work in the project  
"Challenges in Exploratory Visualization of Multidimensional Data: Paradigms, Scalability and Applications".  

The project, funded by Fapesp (Sao Paulo State research funding agency), aims at advancing the state-of-the-art research in scientific 
and abstract data visualization, with emphasis in the processing and handling of high-dimensional, multimodal time-varying data. 
The novel paradigms to be developed shall provide advanced visual metaphors for visualizations based on multidimensional projection and 
phylogenetic trees, allowing for improved understanding and exploration of many types of data, including text, image, biological, 
music collections and nanoescale sensing data. An additional goal is to investigate data visualization and visual exploration methods suitable 
for execution on portable devices.

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow! Curiosity, open-mind, creativity, persistence, and collaborative-work capability are the 
key personal skills we target. A Ph.D. in computer science, applied mathematics, or related areas is required, with demonstrated experience 
and high quality publications. Candidates should have advanced programming skills and a solid background in mathematics.  
Portuguese speaking is not required but fluency in English is mandatory.

Applicants are invited to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including their full publication record), as well as reference letters (at least two) by email to
Dr. Luis Gustavo Nonato - Applications will be open until February 15th.
