Eindhoven University of Technology is an internationally top-ranking university in the Netherlands that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a top-five position in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow. The Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences
(IE&IS) is a leading school in the area of industrial engineering and management science as well as innovation sciences. IE&IS has several BSc and MSc programs housed in two separate schools. Research is multi-disciplinary, based on fundamental scientific insights and methods. The school of Industrial Engineering (IE) focuses on the analysis, (re)design, and control of operational processes in organizations and the information systems needed for these processes, and the school of Innovation Sciences (IS) focuses on the realization and impact of technological innovations at the individual, organizational, and societal level. At the heart of our academic philosophy is the synergy between research and teaching.The Human Technology Interaction (HTI) group
is part of the school of IS. It concentrates expertise in social sciences - in particular psychology - and engineering, and is concerned with the responsible development, introduction, and use of technology, focusing on its interface to humans, its successful deployment in organizations, and a fundamental understanding of its transformative effects on individuals and society. We highly value collegiality, collaboration and team science and look forward to welcoming you in our midst.
You will be part of one of the 17 new ICAI labs, named FEPLab
consisting of 5 PhD students, who will collaborate on studying advanced, AI-based hearing aids investigating (1) design of (probabilistic) generative models for the assisted hearing situation, (2) tools for automated Bayesian inference, and (3 - the current research position) the interaction between the user, hearing aid technology systems. The lab is a collaboration between Eindhoven University of Technology's Electrical Engineering department, the Human-Technology Interaction research group (at the Innovation Sciences sub department), and GN Hearing, a globally leading hearing aid manufacturer with a strong research group.
This lab is part of the 10-year LTP ROBUST program
'Trustworthy AI-based Systems for Sustainable Growth' consortium, which unites 17 knowledge institutions, 19 participating industry sponsors and 15 civil-social organizations from across the Netherlands. You will gain valuable experience working with an industry partner and will be able to tap into a wealth of networking, career development, and training opportunities in conjunction with ICAI, the Innovation Center for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Amsterdam.
