CWI has a vacancy for a 4-year PhD position in the Interactive 
Information Access research group for a FP7-project financed by the 
European Union: Fish4Knowledge

The PhD candidate is expected to carry out research in the field of user 
interfaces for interactive information retrieval and will analyze the 
information needs of marine biologists studying large amounts of 
undersea video data, and translate these user needs into innovative 
interface designs that effectively support biologists in their tasks. 
These designs will need to take into account the state of the art in 
video analysis, being developed by other partners, and be empirically 
evaluated. Investigating where these designs are also applicable to data 
sources from other domains is also part of the research.

Results are to be published in international journals and major 
conferences and in lead to a PhD thesis within 4 years.
Candidates are expected to have a Master's in computer science and have 
affinity with HCI and/or IR-related research. One should have good 
academic writing and presentation skills. Candidates are expected have 
an excellent command of English.
