-       visual and algorithmic analysis of movement and event data –

The position is part of the Knowledge Discovery research group, which
focuses on the subfields of computer science known as knowledge
discovery in databases (KDD, sometimes referred to simply as data
mining) and machine learning (ML). For us, these fields include on the
one hand the automated and visually explorative analysis of large data
sets including intelligent algorithms that are capable of extracting
from the collected data hidden knowledge in order to produce models
that can be used for prediction and decision making. On the other
hand, they also include algorithms and methods that are capable of
learning from experience and adapting to their environment or their

The candidate would specifically elaborate and develop scalable visual
and algorithmic methods for the analysis of spatiotemporal data, which
involve a high complexity of geographical space, time, and
multidimensional non-spatial attributes.

The candidate has completed a Diplom, Master degree, or PhD in
Computer Science, Mathematics or Geoinformatics, and has proven
capabilities in software engineering and mathematical modelling.
Knowledge of Data Mining and Information Visualization is a
