Associate/assistant professorships in DTU's Multimedia Section.

Two positions are available in the Multimedia Section at DTU for
occupation as soon as possible.

In collaboration with the Danish National Center for IT Research, the
Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is in the process of building up
a new Section for Multimedia.  The central focus of the section's
research is distributed multimedia and its applications.  The section
is placed at the Center for Tele-Information (CTI), and contributes to
an inter-disciplinary initiative involving several departments at DTU.
CTI works in a cross-disciplinary manner on research and teaching in
the areas of planning, development and use of teleinformation and
telecommunications services, as well as with multimedia.

As part of a larger effort to develop the area of multimedia, we are
looking for an associate or assistant professor in Distributed
Multimedia and an associate professor in Multimedia Support for
Cooperation.  More positions in the Multimedia Section will be
available later.  The positions are related to various aspects of
distributed multimedia and their applications.  In this connection,

technologies which, via treatment and transmission of mixtures of
text, pictures, graphics and sound, permit efficient man-machine
interaction and stimulate and encourage cooperation and inter-personal
