[DMANET] PhD and postdoc position in human-centered algorithm engineering at TU Wien

The Algorithms and Complexity Group at TU Wien (
invites applications for two open positions (one PhD student, one postdoc) in
the FWF project "Human-Centered Algorithm Engineering: Graph and Map
Visualization" led by Prof. Martin Nöllenburg. The project is funded by the
Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and deals with algorithmic problems in graph
visualization and cartography that integrate human expertise into the
algorithmic optimization process. It combines aspects of algorithm engineering,
information visualization, and human-computer interaction. The intended
starting date of both positions is September 1, 2018 (with some flexibility).

Applicants for the _PhD student position_ should have an excellent Master
degree (or equivalent) in computer science or a related subject with a focus on
algorithmics or algorithm engineering, good programming skills and a strong
research interest in visualization algorithms, computational cartography, or
graph drawing.

Applicants for the _postdoc position_ should have a doctoral degree in computer
science (or a related field) with a focus on visualization algorithms, visual
analytics, human-computer interaction, or some other project-related area, as
proven by the publication track record. A strong research interest in combining
algorithmic techniques and human interaction in theory and practice is

We offer a stimulating and collaborative working environment in a successful
international research group on algorithms and complexity at TU Wien, one of
the top-ranking universities in computer science in Europe. In 2018, Vienna has
been awarded as the world's city with the highest quality of living for the
ninth year in a row.

The application deadline is June 1, 2018. If you are interested in one of the
