Assistant Professor HCI/AI (0,8 - 1,0 fte) position

Technische Universiteit Eindhoven

The Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences (IE&IS) has several BSc and MSc programs in two separate schools. The School of Innovation Sciences focuses on the development and use of new technologies in a broad societal context. Research is multi-disciplinary, based on fundamental scientific insights and methods. Main areas of interest are economics and sociology of technological developments, sustainable innovation policy, human-technology interaction, and the history and philosophy of technology.

The Human-Technology Interaction Group
The Human-Technology Interaction (HTI) group of the School of Innovation Sciences concentrates expertise in both social sciences and engineering, studying technology and its relations to humans and human well-being, within the broader context of a socially and ecologically sustainable society. 

The position: Assistant professor in AI/HCI
For the HTI group, artificial intelligence is a strong growth area. We explore and wish to improve the user experience of AI, including the ability to provide fair and sensible explanations for decisions made by learning algorithms, and continuous adaptive personalization based on user data. We are looking for a candidate who will be able to connect cognitive (neuro)psychology to artificial intelligence. The Assistant Professor in AI/HCI will have expertise at the intersection of AI, HCI and psychology, with a strong human-centered focus, as demonstrated by a relevant PhD, as well as publications in relevant journals and conferences. Additional specific interest and expertise in human factors engineering and cognitive neuroscience will be appreciated.
