The department of Industrial Design (ID) of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e), founded in 2001, is a rapidly growing department with over 550 students, both Bachelor and Master, and around 200 staff members. With a strong emphasis on research the ID department focuses on the design of intelligent products, systems, and related services. These innovative systems and products enable people to interact with their environment in an optimal and flexible way. The TU/e ID engineer, who has developed a wide range of competencies during his/her education, is capable of integrating technology, user aspects, design and business/marketing insights. This MSc-program is practice oriented, capable to deal with and aware of relevant issues as formulated by industry and society at large. Ambient Intelligence and Cultural Computing draw special attention within the TU/e and ID particular, and is an important research and application field. ID encompasses four areas: Technology covered by the Designed Intelligence (DI) group, User aspects, covered by User-Centred Engineering (UCE) group, Design, covered by the Designing Quality in Interaction (DQI) group, and Business, covered by the Business Process Design (BPD) group.

This position is situated within the group Designed Intelligence (DI). This group is focused on the involvement of (new) technologies in the field of ambient intelligence and mixed reality. This position of assistant professor is needed to strengthen the research themes of adaptive and aware environments within this group. These themes address one of the key areas of ambient intelligence and therefore needs to gain more critical mass within the DI group.

Therefore you must have a PhD in Computer Science/Software Engineering focusing on software architecture and control structures for mixed reality, user modeling and/or cognitive simulations. You have a track record of publications in top conferences and journals and are open and interested in an industrial design environment. Strong programming skills (e.g. JAVA, C or C ++) and background/strong interests in empirical research methods (e.g. experiment) are required. Dutch language skills are not required, English is obligatory. Having obtained the Basic Certificate in Learning and Teaching (BKO) is mandatory for a scientific career at the TU/e. If necessary the TU/e will facilitate candidates in getting their BKO-certificate.

Appointment and salary:

We offer a full time, challenging position in a new and rapidly growing Department of Industrial Design.
This is a four year tenure track position.
We offer a salary with a minimum of € 3,195 and a maximum of € 4,970 gross per month (salary scales 11 and 12, CAO NU (Dutch Universities)) on a full-time basis and related to relevant experience and knowledge, plus 8% holiday allowance and 8.3% end of the year allowance.
