EDGE Marie-Curie Postdoctoral fellowships.

A new call for EDGE Marie Skłodowska Curie postdoctoral research fellowships has opened. These are prestigious and well funded positions. Note that only applicants who have not been resident in Ireland over 12 months in the previous 3 years are eligible to apply (for specific guidance, see the application documents section of . . . → Read More: EDGE Marie-Curie Postdoctoral fellowships.

PhD Studentship in Mobile Applications to Support Emotion Regulation in Mental Health (Marie Curie ESR)

Marie Curie PhD Studentship in Mobile Applications to Support Emotion Regulation in Mental Health
We are seeking an excellent Early Stage Researcher (ESR) who must be eligible to enrol as a PhD.

Closing Date and Time:    5pm on 15/5/2017

The selected PhD student will be paid a gross annual salary of approximately €31,400 over a 3 year fixed term contract. They will also be entitled to a mobility allowance of approximately €6,500 per annum and potentially a family allowance where appropriate. The goal of the research is to investigate the role of self-reports in emotional sense making and self-regulation in mental health. This research will involve working to understand the self-management strategies and needs of people with mental health difficulties, and particularly bipolar disorder. Through the development and evaluation of innovative prototypes, it will look at the refinement and evaluation of different strategies for mobile self-reporting. Evaluations will explore the effectiveness of these strategies with respect to the different motivations for use of self-reports. It will involve work with both patients and clinical collaborators.

PhD positions on Visualization Support for Software Defined Data Centers

Trinity College Dublin in collaboration with Intel Labs Europe are seeking two exceptional candidates for postgraduate (PhD) research scholarships on visualization support for software-defined data centers. Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI) is an emerging technology that will radically change the way in which ICT infrastructure is provided, managed and consumed. The research will have a strong HCI component, starting with end-user interviews, observations, and analysis, feeding in to the design of visualizations to support the work. It will involve significant interaction with industrial users throughout.

Position for postdoctoral HCI researcher on Understanding and Visualizing Multicore Performance

The School of Computer Science and Statistics at Trinity College Dublin  is looking for applications for a Post-doctoral research position in the area of HCI and Visualization. The position is part of Lero, the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre, with collaboration from IBM Research.

Whereas previously only a small minority of programmers would deal with parallel programming, the shift towards multi-core has meant that
a much wider proportion of programmers will need to produce parallel programs. The successful candidate will work as part of a small team
on the ManyCore project, which aims to support this activity through visualizations which help programmers understand and improve the
performance of their programs.

PhD Studentship on Visualizing Multicore Performance

Improved performance is one of the main motivations behind the move towards the use of many-core processors, but how do software engineers actually do performance optimization? Can we provide better visual tools to allow programmers to better understand and improve their many-core programs? This PhD studentship in Human-computer Interaction will examine these questions. . . . → Read More: PhD Studentship on Visualizing Multicore Performance
