IBM Visual Communications Lab has an opening

Posted to Miscellaneous  |  Nathan Yau

There are a lot of job opportunities out there for visualization people. This is one of the more awesome ones:

We are looking for a PhD-level researcher who is excited by data, visualization, and communication. A job candidate should have a history of designing and building innovative visualizations. An emphasis on large-scale user participation (e.g. collaboration, crowdsourcing, social communication) and on evaluation of hypotheses about user behavior is a plus. A successful candidate will have published in one or more areas of information visualization, computer-supported cooperative work, and human-computer interaction.

No more Martin and Fernanda, but still good I am sure.
