To expand the team of lab support at the department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences we are looking for two engineers. Researchers in the Humans & Technology (H&T) research theme in this department perform high-quality multidisciplinary scientific research at the intersection of humans and technology, and translate fundamental research insights into viable applications, services, and policies. In the position of research engineer, you will support scientists and students in performing experiments in the Humans & Technology (H&T) labs by realizing required experimental setups, taking care of maintenance, upgrading but certainly also further development of equipment and software applications, providing documentation and supporting and instructing researchers on the use of the facilities. Among others, the H&T labs include the Social Robotics lab, a Virtual Reality lab and a controlled Lighting lab and large-scale living labs.
Ideally, the research engineers, for instance a lighting research technician and a technical software engineer complement each other to provide the support and software development required for these labs.
In the Virtual reality lab people can become fully immersed in virtual worlds. This allows us to study behavior in the virtual worlds, but also enables us to precisely track peoples' behavior. You develop VR environments and 3D objects and write interactive VR applications in Vizard, Unity or Unreal Engine, program robot actions and are responsible for the maintenance of the relevant research equipment.
