Faculty of Science
The University of Amsterdam
(UvA) is the Netherlands' largest university, offering the widest range of academic programmes. At the UvA, 42,000 students, 6,000 staff members and 3,000 PhD candidates study and work in a diverse range of fields, connected by a culture of curiosity.
The Faculty of Science
(FNWI) has a student body of around 8,000, as well as 1,800 members of staff working in education, research or support services. Researchers and students at the Faculty of Science are fascinated by every aspect of how the world works, be it elementary particles, the birth of the universe or the functioning of the brain.
The mission of the Informatics Institute
(IvI) is to perform curiosity-driven and use-inspired fundamental research in Computer Science. The main research themes are Artificial Intelligence, Computational Science and Systems and Network Engineering. Our research involves complex information systems at large, with a focus on collaborative, data driven, computational and intelligent systems, all with a strong interactive component.
You will be embedded in the newly set up Digital Interactions Lab
(DIL), part of the Informatics Institute. Lead by Professor Judith Good, DIL focuses on developing impactful technologies which start from a true understanding of users and their needs. It incorporates the latest advances in Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things but aims for them to be deployable in real settings because of their ease of use and low cost. As such, the Digital Interactions Lab will play a bridging role between the four research themes of the Informatics Institute: Artificial Intelligence, Computational Science, Data Science, and Systems and Networking.
