Faculty Position in Department of Informatics – Virtual Heritage

The Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana
University Bloomington invites applications for a tenured full professor
position to begin in Fall 2020, with expertise relevant to the
Department of Informatics Virtual Heritage (VH) track.

The track is devoted to interdisciplinary study of how information
technology can be applied in pursuit of the traditional goals of
cultural heritage professionals: the discovery, recording, restoration,
analysis, interpretation, and transmission of three-dimensional human
creations at all scales. Faculty in the VH track typically have training
in a humanistic, social scientific, and/or engineering discipline, whose
knowledge and methodologies they apply to teaching and innovative research.

The ideal candidate will have a strong engineering background.
Appropriate research interests include 3D digitization technologies in
all forms, ranging from active approaches based on laser scanners and
pattern projection devices to passive methods such as photogrammetry; 3D
modeling from real data; Reverse Engineering and 3D Metrology, Virtual
and Augmented interaction with 3D environments.

The position holder is encouraged to do teaching and research applying
3D technologies outside the VH domain, with special emphasis on
interdisciplinary studies using 3D digitization and modeling.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in a discipline connected with 3D
digitization and modeling (e.g., Electrical Engineering, Robotics,
Bioengineering, Geomatics, etc.) and a significant record of research,
teaching, and service.  A strong record in interdisciplinary research
activities, including coordination of research projects, is a valuable
additional qualification.

Duties will include research, teaching, and service.  We seek candidates
prepared to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in
higher education. The strongest candidates can demonstrate their
experience in teaching or working with diverse student populations.

Candidates should review application requirements and apply online at:


For full consideration, please submit your application by February 7,
2020.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
Questions may be sent to: luddyjob+inf-vh@indiana.edu

        Subject: Senior Researcher Position in Computational Social Science at the Leibniz-Institute for Media Research in Hamburg, Germany

There is still one weekend left to apply for an awesome senior
researcher position in computational social/communication science to
plan, build, and manage our Media Research Methods Lab.


From 2020 onwards, HBI will pool and expand its methodological competencies in
a "Media Research Methods Lab" (MRML). The MRML will focus on linking
established social science methods with novel computational methods (for
example, automated content analysis/natural language processing, image
recognition, network analysis, log data analysis, experience sampling, and
machine learning). This can also include work in the areas of regulatory science
such as case law, the analysis of text corpora, and the ethical-legal components
of data collection and evaluation procedures. In addition to delving into
further methodological development, the lab will focus on the transfer of
specialist knowledge within the institute and to the wider scientific community
as well as to other HBI stakeholders. Together with Dr. Sascha Hölig, the
successful candidate will be expected to manage the MRML and further develop its
conceptual direction.

Please consider applying for this until 15.1.2020
(canary:event?ts=600260405.00) or relaying this vacancy to possibly
interested candidates:

Feel free to ask me anything about the position, the institute, Hamburg,
or Germany.
