Research projects from the "Visual Informatics" team cover a complete scope from basic research (e.g. PhD theses) to applied research in cooperation with public or private partners.

Among others, the team has produced the visualization software called Calluna (see www.calluna.lu) illustrating its ability to imagine innovative concepts and to transform them into usable tools. Team members are coming from various countries and have complementary cultures, skills and hobbies, contributing to a dynamic, result-oriented and cooperative mind-set.

Duties and responsibilities:[edit]

The successful candidate will be working in an applied research team, requiring both scientific skills and the ability to contribute to applied projects with (non- academic) external partners.

  • Proven scientific and/or industrial experience in one of the fields studied in the "Visual Informatics" team: information visualization, visual analytics, data processing, mobile computing, multimedia or human-computer interaction. However, candidates with experience in other fields and willingness to work in the "Visual Informatics" domains are also welcome.
  • From a technology perspective, candidates must have strong skills in software design and development. Ideal candidates should master Java language, related development tools as well as XML language and tools.
  • Experience in web development, performance optimisation or mobile computing will be considered an asset.
  • Applicants must demonstrate excellent written and verbal communication skills, be able to take initiative, prioritize and work under set timelines, as well as the ability to work autonomously as well as in a team.
  • The candidate must be fluent in English (scientific exchanges) and French (administrative language), any additional language will be considered as an advantage.


Candidates who are interested in that position should send their application (with the above reference) including CV, motivation letter, names of two or three referees, a list of research projects and publications, diploma and possible work certificates, either by e-mail to recrutement@lippmann.lu (format .doc or .pdf) or by mail to:
