You will focus on research in the interface between Artificial Intelligence and decision-making methods. Examples of research directions include but are not limited to: using machine learning (such as predictive modelling and reinforcement learning) to find better solutions to optimization problems, developing decision support tools that combine data-driven models with knowledge-based models. With an embedding of the position in the school of Industrial Engineering, special attention will be paid to applications of the methods and tools in domains such as logistics, transportation, service industries, high-tech manufacturing, and healthcare.
You will initiate, perform, and supervise high-quality research in the area of Artificial Intelligence for decision-making; teach and co-develop courses in 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.
The Information Systems group studies how to effectively use information to design, innovate, and support operational processes within and between organizations. Research aims at business intelligence, business process intelligence, business process engineering, or business model and service systems engineering for digital services. The research approach is model-centric and engineering-oriented, integrating basic and applied research with modern real-world cases. Main application domains are the services industry, health care, supply chains and logistics, and high-tech manufacturing. Our research is organized in an open, topic-oriented, dynamic cluster structure. We operate in both a strong international research network and an extensive international industry network.
The School of Industrial Engineering is one of the leading IE schools in Europe, with a strong presence in the international research and education community. Within the School of Industrial Engineering four degree programs are taught: BSc in Industrial Engineering & Management Science, MSc in Operations Management & Logistics, MSc in Innovation Management, and PhD in Operations, Logistics and Innovation Management. The research in the School is strongly connected to the Brainport area, the high-tech industrial area around Eindhoven.
