University of Washington

The Department of Human Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) at the
University of Washington has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher
to perform advanced research and development in the areas of
information visualization and visual analytics. The long-term goal is
to develop a better understanding of the use of visual interfaces in
analyzing and exploring large, dynamic text-based data sets and
networks. This work will involve developing new algorithms to
visualize networks and text. Modeling of the visual interface and the
nature of human-computer interaction over large data sets may also be
involved. The work will be performed as part of an interdisciplinary
team of students and faculty with expertise in a wide range of domains
including computer science, social science, biology, physics, and
other sciences. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to
develop their research skills in all aspects from conceptualization to
publication and presentation. HCDE offers a vibrant multidisciplinary
research environment with links to multiple departments within UW and
