Technische Universität Berlin - Faculty IV – Institute of Software Engineering and Theoretical Computer Science/Quality and Usability Lab
Research assistant - Salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen
part-time employment may be possible
The majority of systems and services, which are provided by computer science, electrical engineering and information technology, finally address the human user. As a consequence, it is essential to understand the user and their interaction behavior for designing successful systems and services. Formal principles for the interface design can be based on this knowledge, as well as demands on the technical components underlying the system. In turn, the availability of new technologies may lead to innovative interface design, and finally to new forms of interaction.
The Quality and Usability Lab, a chair of Faculty IV, is dealing with the evaluation and the design of this Human-Machine-Interaction whereat aspects of human perception, technical systems as well as interaction design are in focus.
Assistance in fundamental research in the field of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality focused on the question of Quality of Experience during the interaction of the user with and within those environments; technical set-up of virtual environments; preparation and deduction of studies with test participants for determination of Quality of Experience and User Experience; writing of scientific publications; representation of the chair at internationals conferences and workshops.
Successfully completed university degree (Diplom, Master or equivalent) in Digital Media, Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Media Engineering or related areas; profound knowledge in Human-Computer-Interaction or Media Engineering; very good English skills (B2); interest in topics like Virtual Reality, multimodal Interaction, signal processing, Quality and Usability, Human-Machine-Interaction.
