  *The Faculty of Sciences, research institute Expertise Centre for Digital
Media of Hasselt University seeks a (m/f)*

*PhD student computer science, specialisation 'human-computer interaction'*


*Task description*
Recent controversies surrounding mobile maps have highlighted the
importance of cartography to human-computer interaction (HCI) and
information visualization on mobile devices. However, despite the prominent
role of “map apps”, they have not yet been robustly examined with a lens
informed by the decades of relevant research in the field of cartography.
Moreover, principles and best practices established cartography have
largely not been integrated with the work of “GeoHCI” and Geo UX
researchers and practitioners. Drawing on the well-established literature
of academic cartography and research in mobile HCI, you will then identify,
and implement, and evaluate potential solutions.


   - Enthusiastic applicants with excellent study results are invited to
   apply. Successful applicants have a keen interest in the HCI-research
   topics at EDM and can work independently as well as in team.
   - As the HCI research in EDM is strongly software oriented, the
   successful candidate should have solid knowledge of and experience with
   software development.
   - The candidate has knowledge of software development on the Android OS
   for mobile devices.
   - The candidate has knowledge of and/or experience with usability
   design, preferentially on mobile devices.
   - The candidate is interested in maps, cartography and spatial
   - The candidate has a very good knowledge of English.

Candidates should have a master degree in computer science, a civil
engineer degree in computer science or equivalent. Students, who expect to
complete these studies during the summer, are also invited to apply.
