RESEARCH POSITION IN CONTEXTUAL COMPUTING AT XRCE, FRANCE

A Research Engineer position is available in the context of the
European project MILK (Multimedia Interaction for Learning and
Knowing). The project is funded by the European Framework V Programme
and is due to start in February 2002 for 30 months. MILK is a
multidisciplinary project including computer scientists, ethnographers
and interaction designers and builds on the success of a previous
project, Klee&Co., which was addressing contextual access to
documents.

MILK will extend the model developed in Klee&Co. by building services
to make documents relevant to the context available across several
devices (pc, mobile, large interactive screens).

The main contribution of Xerox Research Centre Europe will be in
designing and implementing an ambient display providing relevant
documents and information on large interactive screens in dependence
of the detected social context. The work in the project will be
carried out in a multi-disciplinary team and will address both the
context modelling and the interaction design aspects.

If you have a solid background in user profiling and/or
personalisation and adaptation of services, and some experience in the
field of interaction design and information modelling then you should
take this opportunity to join a motivated and dynamic team, which
seeks to combine world-class research work with practical
experimentation. The work requires a good balance between scientific
and technical excellence, and good skills in communication. You should
have a scientific background from academic or industrial research, and
you will typically have a Ph.D. 

XRCE offers excellent salaries and benefits (and relocation package),
excellent computing facilities and the opportunity to work in a
leading international research institute. The successful candidate
will be located in Grenoble (France), in the foothills of the Alps,
providing access to some of the best outdoors in the world. Please
refer to the XRCE webpages (http://www.xrce.xerox.com) for further
information on our research centre.

Informal enquires regarding this position can be made to: Antonietta
Grasso, grassoxrce.xerox.com or Christer Fernstrom,

Applications should include the reference CCID0102 and be sent to the
