Aviz is ready to welcome you aboard!
Inria in a few words
Inria is a public science and technology institution established in 1967, and the only public research body fully dedicated to computational sciences in France. Combining computer sciences with mathematics, Inria’s 3,400 researchers strive to invent the digital technologies of the future with 8 research Centres based in: Bordeaux, Grenoble, Lille, Nancy, Paris, Rennes, Saclay and Sophia-Antipolis.

Non-French people are encouraged to apply whether they speak French or not. A good level of English is required, especially written English. In general, we look for people who are curious, creative and have good analytical and programming skills.
Aviz often has funding for a few internships. In France, summer is not the best time for an internship but summer internships are nonetheless possible if they are arranged long enough in advance. Each of our proposed topics can lead to a 3-year PhD thesis on a related or non-related topic, depending on available funding and the candidate's quality (see below for more details on PhD positions).
List of possible internship topics:
- Interactive 3D Visualization and Exploration of Plant Embryo Development Histories: supervised by Tobias Isenberg
- Interactive 3D Data Registration for Proton Therapy using Touch-Based Interfaces: supervised by Tobias Isenberg
- Interactive Illustrative Map Visualization: supervised by Tobias Isenberg
- Tangible Interaction for 3D Flow Data Visualization: supervised by Lonni Besançon and Tobias Isenberg
- Testing Visualizations in a Browser: supervised by Jean-Daniel Fekete
- Visual Analysis of the Bitcoin Transaction Network: supervised by Petra Isenberg and Christoph Kinkeldey
- Perception of Data Visualizations Across Devices: supervised by Petra Isenberg
- Understanding Dual Axis Charts: supervised by Petra Isenberg
- Embedded Visualizations for Personal Finance: supervised by Petra Isenberg
The currently proposed topics can be found here.
You can apply as a PhD student under the supervision or co-supervision of any of the research scientists at Aviz (list here). The topic of your PhD should be discussed with the researcher you are interested in working with. With your future advisor you can the apply for funding from several sources, such as:
- INRIA (bourses CORDI). Application is between February and May every year. See information for 2015.
- University (allocations de l'École Doctorale). Application deadline is in June every year. See their project proposal list and information for 2013 (2014 under construction).
It is recommended (but not necessary nor sufficient) to do a Master internship at Aviz before applying.

Information for students from abroad
Post-Doc / Engineers
Seeking for a Postdoctoral fellow on "Progressive Data Analysis". Application sought by Feb. 1st 2017.
INRIA also has scholarhips for Post-Docs and Research Engineers on other topics. If you are interested in working at Aviz for a PostDoc please contact Jean-Daniel Fekete or Tobias Isenberg to discuss options and what you would like to work on.
Research Scientists (permanent positions)
You can apply at Aviz as a Research Scientist every year between mid-December and mid-February, for a position starting the next September. INRIA Research Scientists hold a permanent (tenured) position. Your application will be examined by an independent scientific committee at INRIA. Positions are highly competitive and non-French applicants are encouraged.
