Postgraduate Top-up Scholarship in Biological Data Visualisation - CSIRO

The Digital Productivity Flagship of CSIRO in Sydney is offering a PhD top-up scholarship to attract students wanting to join an exciting, interdisciplinary team focused on visualizing biological data. Also jointly associated with the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, the team focuses primarily on using principles of usability, data visualization, human-computer interfaces, and graphic design to develop state-of-the-art methods and tools that address cutting edge challenges in biological and biomedical research.

A second focus of the team is on using these methods to analyse experimental datasets in collaboration with groups at CSIRO and at the Garvan.

This position could be filled by a student from a range of backgrounds, including bioinformatics, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, or computer scientists with an interest in data visualization, human computer interaction, usability, or design.

Of particular interest would be a student with strong JavaScript skills, as well as a strong interest in using HTML 5 to build the next-generation of visualization tools for biology.
