*Job Description:*

The newly formed research group for human-computer interaction (HCI) is 
led by Prof. Dr. Johannes Schöning (www.johannesschoening.de 
<http://www.johannesschoening.de>). He holds a Lichtenberg Professorship 
and both PhD positions are supported by the Volkswagen foundation. In 
our group we investigate how people interact with digital spatial 
information and create new methods and novel interfaces to help people 
interact with spatial information. This includes the development and 
evaluation of wearable technologies, mobile augmented reality and 
virtual reality applications, interactive surfaces and tabletops, and 
other [UTF-8?]“post [UTF-8?]desktop” interfaces. Therefore, we are
currently looking for 
students excited to do their PhD in this area at the intersection of 
HCI, geoinformatics, and Ubicomp technologies.

*About us:*

The position offers great opportunities to conduct independent and 
blue-sky PhD research in a vibrant research environment. We offer 
collaboration with other members of the HCI group and other groups 
within the CS department in Bremen. The successful candidate will be 
working with a dynamic, friendly, and helpful team of computer science 
researchers. Our research group is part of the school of computer 
science at University of Bremen. The University of Bremen is one of 11 
institutions classed as an "Elite university" in Germany, and an 
university of approximately 23,500 students from over 100 countries, 
offering a broad range of fringe benefits such as sports facilities, 
cultural activities and daycare.


We love to work with students with strong technical skills and 
backgrounds across disciplines. Candidates should have an excellent 
Master's degree or equivalent in computer science, or related 
disciplines such as mathematics, physics, etc. Required skills are solid 
experience in (mobile) software development (Android, iOS), and a very 
good command of English (reading/writing/speaking). Ideally, you have 
specialized in HCI topics and already have a good knowledge on 
conducting experiments in HCI. In addition, the successful candidate 
will be highly self-motivated, passionate about their work, and have 
good ability to work both independently as well as in a team in a 
multidisciplinary environment.

*Conditions of employment:*

The position is available for a period of three years (under the 
condition of job release), with
the aim to complete the PhD within the 3 years.

As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female 
employees in science, women are particularly encouraged to apply. In 
case of equal personal aptitudes and qualification, disabled persons 
will be given priority. Applicants with a migration background are welcome.

How to Apply & What to Do in Case of Questions:
Applications should comprise a

  * cover letter,
  * complete CV including any achievements,
  * degree certificates (including list of courses and grades),
  * names and contact details of at least two referees,
  * an one pager on your past and future research interests and ideas
    for your PhD
  * and other credentials if any (e.g., recommendation letters,
    publications, etc.).

hesitate to address them to the above email address.
