The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is offering a permanent researcher position in mixed reality systems for environmental applications.
She / he will join the Environmental Informatics (ENVINFO) Unit of the Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) department.
The Environmental Informatics Unit is designing, implementing and evaluating innovative ICT methods and applications required in the environmental domain for sustainable resources management, environmental impact reduction and environmental disaster management.
The Unit is organised in four technical areas : data visualisation, mixed reality, geo-computation and data analytics. This position will enhance ongoing work in the field of mixed reality and environmental issues and will complement work in existing European and Luxembourgish projects.
The ENVINFO computer scientists cooperate with various experts from environmental sciences in order to develop new algorithms, create effective methods and to build efficient software applications.
The Unit’s work is designed to assist domain experts to tackle challenging environmental issues. Work also extends to predicting the expected behaviour of systems with AI and Machine Learning techniques.
The position aims to complement ongoing work involving the application of mixed reality (augmented and virtual reality) for use in the environmental domain.
The work will include exploring how mixed reality technologies can be used in the understanding of the unfolding of natural disasters, protecting biodiversity, managing natural resources in a sustainable way and more globally supporting people to behave in an environmentally-
friendly manner. Some of these applications will require the use of space-related data.
The activities will bring together work on mixed reality and data visualisation. The post will also involve looking at how to connect geo-
computation tools and mixed reality.
Her / his main mission is to actively contribute to research, development and innovation and to participate to the definition and contribution to newly developed RDI projects.
The position requires a strong interest and proven experience in research (e.g. accepted publications) as well as in software development.
She / he will mainly be asked to :
