VRVis is seeking a skilled and creative mind to join our successful team of researchers developing Visual Computing Solutions for Biomedical Image Management, Interactive Analysis, Mining and Visualization in the course of the DFG/FWF project Larvalbrain 2.0. The project is undertaken by the Biomedical Image Informatics Group at VRVis in Vienna, Austria, in cooperation with the Merhof Lab at RWTH Aachen (Image Registration) and the Thum Lab at University Leipzig (Neuroscience), both in Germany.
Larvalbrain 2.0 aims at providing advanced and novel solutions for the management, web based interactive analysis, mining and visualization of neuroscientific data (see below for further info).
Your research topics will cover
The required software development in context of Larvalbrain 2.0 does not start from scratch. We have a mature framework for the management, mining and visualization of data for neuroscientific data that is in use by neuroscientists in research and industry. You will be embedded in the highly ambitious and skilled team working on it. Your developments will build upon this framework, to be evaluated and finally used by our partners from neuroscience.
Your work is characterized by a high level of independent problem solving and creative thinking, coupled with a good team spirit and excellent communication skills. Depending on your qualification, project management tasks and/or supervision of students may be assigned to you. As research institute, VRVis actively supports the publication of your excellent research results at scientific conferences and renowned journals. In case you do not yet own a PhD, there is the opportunity to pursue a PhD at TU Wien.
We especially encourage female candidates to apply, for we wish to actively counter the lack of female researchers in the visual computing field. Therefore, in cases of equal qualification, preference is given to female candidates.
Please forward your application documents using “Larvalbrain” as subject line to:
