Job description

Your goal is to research how information systems can lead to better operational decisions in business processes; create advanced data analytics and machine learning techniques to mine for information that supports these decisions; and investigate how operational processes can be improved with that information. You also want to teach these skills to students. If this describes you, we invite you to apply for the position of an assistant professor in Information Systems.

Job description

As a successful applicant, you will work on methods, tools, and techniques that will contribute to the next generation Information Systems for operational decision support. Our group focuses on industry-driven research that leads to fundamental scientific contributions. We primarily aim to create methods, tools and techniques to solve problems in the areas of healthcare, smart industry, mobility, transportation, and logistics.

As an assistant professor, you will initiate, perform, and supervise high-quality research in one of the areas mentioned above or a related area. You will teach and co-develop courses in the Bachelor and Master Programmes of the School of Industrial Engineering; initiate and contribute to externally funded research projects; assist in the supervision of Ph.D. students and contribute to the management of the group and the department.

You will be embedded in the Information Systems group in the department of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences. In that way you will, of course, directly collaborate with experts in areas such as business intelligence, business process intelligence, business process engineering, or business model and service systems engineering for digital services, but also with people from other disciplines in the department and the university as a whole. You will also benefit from our extensive international network of partner universities, research groups, and company contacts, with whom you will engage in joint research projects.

Preference will be given to applicants with a background in:

  • Business Process Management with a quantitative component (e.g., business process simulation, mining, optimization, or related).
  • Information Systems technology (e.g., ERP, CRM, WMS, TMS, and related systems) as well as the underlying technologies and architectures (e.g., Web-services, Workflow management, Blockchain, and related systems).
  • Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence for Decision Making (e.g., deep learning, NLP, deep reinforcement learning, or related).

  • Salary in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities, scale 11. (min. € 3.974 max. € 5.439).
  • A year-end bonus of 8.3% and annual vacation pay of 8%.
