The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £35,328 - £42,701 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.

The role will involve both data visualisation research and platform development, implementing insights gained through user trials and engagement tracking into a reusable visualisation platform, to be deployed in real-world contexts. Working with project partners in the UK and overseas, the role will involve building on the outputs of other research projects to create visual interfaces for understanding, exploring, and explaining emerging and important trends. Key will be identifying routes for communicating public health trends to a variety of users, from fieldworkers, to health workers, doctors, and academics. We envisage use of a variety of user behaviour tracking techniques, including eye tracking, engagement data, and interviews, in addition to application of advanced analytical methods to understand these behaviours. There are a number of application areas from across the i-sense project where these methods will be applied, so it is vital that the candidate is able to adapt methods accordingly and work effectively with colleagues from a wide variety of backgrounds. It is expected that the candidate will assist in the operational coordination of the project.

The successful applicant will have a PhD (or PhD nearing completion) in Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Science, Data/Information Visualisation, Human Factors, Geographic Information Science, or a related area. They will have experience of information visualisation platform development and deep knowledge of modern interaction visualisation development.
