Hi Generative People,
This might interest some here... please get in touch if it sounds like your cup of tea and you want to live and work in Melbourne, Australia for awhile :-) There is plenty of scope for projects related to generative art in this environment too :-)
PhD Opportunity in Analysis and Visualisation of Computational Simulation Models
Computational simulation models are an increasingly important tool for
exploring and understanding patterns of health and disease in human
populations. The output of these models is complex and
multidimensional, and requires innovative approaches to data analysis,
visualisation and interpretation.
An APA equivalent scholarship (or top-up for a scholarship holder) is
being offered for a PhD research candidate who will focus on data
analysis and visualisation of epidemiological agent-based simulations.
The new visualisation approaches will integrate information on
population structure, social networks, spatial location and disease
state to provide novel insights into the links between population
structure and disease transmission.
This is a joint project of the Clayton School of Information
Technology at Monash University and the School of Population Health at
the University of Melbourne. The project also involves collaboration
with social network researchers in the School of Psychology at the
University of Melbourne, and the emerging e-research platform being
developed by the Australian Urban Research Infrastructure Network.
Prior experience in information visualisation, scientific
visualisation, data analysis, human-computer interaction, computer
graphics or geographic information systems would be advantageous.
However, we encourage all well-qualified candidates (MSc or good
Honours degree) with a strong interest in this research area to apply.
Please feel free to contact me in the first instance if you require
any further information.
