A PhD position is available in the Pervasive and Artificial  
Intelligence research group in the Department of Informatics at the  
University of Fribourg (Switzerland).

The research domain of the PhD will be human-computer interaction in  
pervasive computing contexts. Within a project involving a smart  
environment where people may interact using a variety of devices and  
interaction modes, the goal of the research will be to design an  
interaction translation module between devices present in the  
environment. Work will involve the definition of basic interactions  
(e.g. click, drag, zoom...) and associated input modalities on  
different devices, and the study of the relationships between these  
basic interactions and their use for the management of interaction.

The position involves participation in teaching activities within the  
Computer Science Bachelor and Master programs for about 30% of the  
time. The ability to speak French and/or German (in addition to  
English) is therefore mandatory.

Applicants should have a Master in Computer Science or an equivalent  
degree. An interest in working in interdisciplinary projects is an  
asset. To apply, please send a motivation letter, CV and a list of  
main publications to Prof. Beat Hirsbrunner at  [log in to unmask]
