Open positions

 

The Geoinformation Group at TU Vienna is looking for a PhD Student and a Postdoctoral researcher, starting the earliest possible.

 

PhD Position

We welcome applications from students that are enthusiastic about working in the area of human-computer interaction with a focus on spatial interaction.

The main aim of this 4 year position is to develop an understanding and assist humans during interaction with elements of their surrounding as well as with digital information during spatial decision making. The research is expected to lead to publications and a PhD dissertation for the student.

Qualifications and Skills

The ideal candidate must have an academic degree (Master Degree or equivalent) in a relevant field (e.g., Computer Science, Mathematics, Information Science, Geoinformation Science), as well as strong research interests in Human-Computer Interaction and Geographic Information Science.
