PhD Position in Visualization

Syddansk Universitet (SDU)



The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense, invites applications for a PhD position in visualization with a focus on the digital humanities. The proposed starting date is 1 November 2020. The hired candidate will be part of the Data Science and Statistics Group. Application deadline: 14 October 2020.

Candidate Profile
We are looking for highly motivated students interested in designing and developing visual interfaces in collaboration with experts in (digital) humanities within a European project. The ideal candidate has an MSc in Computer Science, and has already gained experience on the intersection of visualization and digital humanities. A minimum requirement is acquired experience in at least one of the following areas:
• Information Visualization
• Human-computer Interaction
• Interface Design
• Digital Humanities.

Experience in interdisciplinary projects and writing scientific publications is a plus.

Fluency in English is required.

The position is financed by the European research project “In/Tangible European Heritage – Visual Analysis, Curation and Communication (InTaVia)”. The InTaVia project aims to draw together tangible and intangible assets of European heritage to enable their mutual contextualization. The development of new means of data creation, curation, and transnational integration is focused. In this context, the University of Southern Denmark will be involved in developing a visual analytics environment to help CH experts to better access, analyze, and visually communicate cultural collections and related biographical and contextual knowledge to the interested public. Together with visualization experts from other European institutions, an information portal for the integration, visual analysis and communication of tangible and intangible cultural assets will be developed. It will support synoptic sense-making and storytelling about European heritage with implications for research, pedagogy, journalism, cultural tourism, creative industries and heritage institutions.
