The Eindhoven University of Technology has established an institute for Artificial Intelligence (EAISI), with the ambition to become one of the top AI institutes in Europe. It will take on 50 extra professors for education and research in AI. The new institute will focus on the use of smart algorithms in machines, like robots and autonomous cars, traditionally a strong point of the TU/e.

To live up to this ambition, we need to realize intelligent solutions and services that can meet the new challenges and demands of AI applications. High Performance Computing (HPC) is becoming ever more important as a tool in many domains, also in AI. Therefore, the TU/e is setting up a new HPC & AI service for research and education. This service includes local and cloud solutions, but also uses national and international computing facilities.

You will closely work with researchers, students of all departments and TU/e institutes, such as the brand new EAISI institute for AI to enable and optimize their models, frameworks and computations.

What are your responsibilities:

  • Profile and optimize AI compute models from researchers and students;
  • Advise on AI application workflows and infrastructure choices;
  • Work together with AI vendor engineers and TU/e IT professionals;

  • Scientific domain knowledge (such as physics or mechanical engineering);
  • Strong analytical skills and ability to independently learn;
  • You thrive in a research environment;
  • You speak fluent in English. Ability to speak Dutch is a value add.


  • Working at an inspiring campus with excellent work facilities where we work for the benefit of humanity and where you have plenty of room for personal development and growth;
  • The salary is in accordance with the Collective Labor Agreement of the Dutch Universities with a maximum of € 5.127 gross per month, depending on education and work experience;
