Job description
This vacancy is particularly interesting if you publish in ACM CHI, ACM CSCW, Ubicomp or ACM Multimedia.
As a postdoc, you will be working with the group in interactive systems and user experience.

You will help our PhD students and will study novel interaction paradigms that result from the convergence of multimedia communications and social networking (including behavioral analysis). In this inter-disciplinary position, you are expected to have a strong background on user experience research, combined with technical skills. The work will primarily focus on QoE research for rich media-mediated communications, which might consider mobile and ubiquitous scenarios.

Applicants should be ready to get their hands dirty and like and be able to work in a team.

Requirements: 
Candidates are required to have a completed PhD (or expect to complete it within the following six months) in computer science or similar (but with a strong background in user experience), mathematics, or related field. Preferable qualifications for candidates include proven research talent, programming skills (C/C++, Python, Javascript), practical experience with multimedia systems, and software development in a team.

Candidates are expected to have an excellent command of English, and good academic writing and presentation skills.
