The University of Oldenburg, Germany and the OFFIS – Institute for
Information Technology invite you to apply for a full-time research
position or PhD scholarship in the area of human-computer interaction.
The following positions are available:
* 1 Post Doc position in pervasive multimodal interaction. The research
directions of particular interest include but are not limited to:
- Studying multimodal interaction for interactive systems in everyday
- Supporting behavioral change with wearable and pervasive systems
- Social interaction and social communication
- Long-term user studies “in the wild”
You will get the opportunity to lead, manage and strengthen particular
* 4 positions in a research project that investigates light in HCI. The
project systematically explores how light displays can be used in
interaction designs to support the transition from continuous unobtrusive
peripheral stimulation to focused attention. We are looking for three
researchers with a background in HCI and one from cognitive psychology.
The project duration is one year.
* 1 position in the area of implicit communication and interaction. The
goal of this project is to support teams working together, which are
spatially distributed over different locations, for example branch offices
in distant cities and countries. The position will investigate how
situations that have a high potential to initiate spontaneous
communication can be represented appropriately to distant users, and
enable users to explicitly engage in informal communication on demand. We
are looking for a researcher with a background in pervasive interaction.
* 1 scholarship for a PhD candidate in the PhD program “SAMS – Safe
Automation of Maritime Systems” (http://sams.uni-oldenburg.de). SAMS
addresses research in safe in maritime systems for navigation and safe
ship handling. This open position focuses on the research on HMI methods
on ship bridges and control stations.
Life and Working Environment:
You will be embedded into the interactive systems group of Prof. Susanne
Boll  and Dr. Wilko Heuten  together with 25 researchers from the
University of Oldenburg  and OFFIS, an associated institute for
information technology . The team is internationally visible and
recognized . Usability and assessment labs, showrooms, a driving
simulator, hardware labs, a 3D printer, a lasercutter as well as different
mobile and wearable technologies are available for developing interactive
systems, conducting studies and working with users. Oldenburg is a
beautiful city in Northwestern Germany with around 160.000 inhabitants
. It is located near Hamburg, Bremen and the North Sea coast.
We invite applications from enthusiastic individuals who are able to work
independently and have an excellent degree in Computer Science or a
related field relevant to the proposed research, and very good knowledge
of human computer interaction and pervasive systems. The working language
is English. Willingness to learn German is appreciated. Applicants are
strongly encouraged to initiate contact with Susanne Boll and Wilko Heuten
prior to their application. Applicants should submit their CV, a copy of
school and university degree and course transcripts with grades, and a
description of research interests. Applications should be emailed to
