The Human-Data (HuDA) Interaction lab (https: // huda-lab.github.io/) in the
Division of Science, New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit a
research assistant to work on innovative research projects at the intersection
of data management, data science, and interactive systems to enable the
derivation of insights from data and to support data-driven decision-making.
The successful applicant will work on one to two collaborative projects on

the degree of uncertainty within a dataset and enabling data-driven decision-
making with uncertain data. The applicant has to have strong programming
skills, experience with data analysis and data science projects, and
demonstrated strengths in systems-engineering, HCI design, or theory. The
candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment consisting of PhD-level
scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students. The candidate will
be expected to maintain weekly progress, clearly communicate research ideas
and methods, distill existing literature and evaluate research works. The
candidate will also be expected to publish their research work.
Research Assistants must have a Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer
Science. Prior work/research experience is preferred.
For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae
with full publication list, statement of research interests and at least two
letters of reference, all in PDF format. A third reference letter may also be
requested. All applicants are advised to explore past projects and
publications by the HuDa lab to determine their fit for the position. Research
statements need to demonstrate why the candidate believes they can contribute
to the lab's vision and research agenda.
