Digitalization efforts have led to massive sensor infrastructures embedded in the fabric of objects, processes and space. A growing volume of data increasingly demands the ability to access data anytime and anywhere, to be digested, often by drawing from a collective expertise before making a decision. This raises two fundamental challenges: First, current analytics tools can only offer a peephole view into the data and are not suited for situational sense-making tasks. Second, geographic separation frequently makes it infeasible for all stakeholders involved to physically participate in the tasks analysis.

We are searching for a Postdoc – Senior Researcher – to lead a four year project on the topic of “Data Driven Immersive Analytics" with 6 PHDs. We will apply immersive analytics, using virtual reality and augmented reality to deliver first person analytics of digital-twins in industrial applications regardless of location.
