Functieomschrijving

The Faculty of Science and Engineering has a vacancy in Human-Computer Interaction and Visualization at the level of Tenure Track Assistant Professor. We are looking for a researcher in Computer Science or a related research field who will strengthen our position in the field of Human-Computer Interaction and Visualization, including Computer Graphics and Graphical Interfaces. Candidates preferably have experience in combining visualization with human-computer interaction in order to achieve a better understanding of ways in which human expertise can be integrated in (interactive) visualizations. Observing the ways in which humans interact with computers in novel ways also plays an important role. Broadly spoken, the research field is situated at the intersection of computer science, behavioural sciences, design, media studies, and several other fields of study. Relevant application fields are medical visualization, biological visualization, text visualization, molecular visualization, environmental visualization, astronomical visualization, etc.
