We are seeking a postdoctoral candidate who holds a PhD in engineering or computer science, to work in the area of adaptive human-machine interfaces (adaptive visualization) for cyber operations. Knowledge and experience in human-machine interface design and/or information visualization is required.
Knowledge of programming is a great asset. Experience in machine learning, data mining, or a related data-processing field is also considered an asset. The main role of the candidate will be to collaborate with an industry partner on the development of novel adaptive level of detail displays for cyber operations in dynamic network environments. An additional role is to provide leadership to MASc and PhD students.
Excellent communication skills, strong independent research skills, and sensitivity to industry partner direction are required. The candidate will be expected to work independently, provide leadership to an interdisciplinary team of graduate students, produce publishable results, and publish frequently.
If approved, initial funding for 1 year will be available for a full time position. An extension of funding to two years is possible depending on project success, and subject to performance.
The application package (to be emailed to G. Jamieson as below) should include a cover letter and CV, including a list of 3 professional references.
