In this position, you carry out scientific research and publish the results with the aim of contributing to the development of scientific knowledge and understanding of part of a particular field of research for the benefit of academic and scientific advancement.
You will work in one of the four research themes of the department of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Sciences. These themes build on our joint strengths and focus on areas that address important trends in science and society.
Humans and Technology
We understand people, their needs and wishes, their values and capabilities. We investigate how individuals relate to technology and vice versa. We consider this crucial for developing systems and services that are pleasant and understandable, that empower rather than frustrate or threaten us, and that genuinely contribute to health and human welfare. Prioritizing people - from individuals to society at large, is key in responsible development and acceptance of future technologies in almost every application field, be it energy, mobility, health, work, living, learning or entertainment.
Logistics and its interfaces
We know supply chains: from initial sales, support throughout the life cycle of products, and reverse flows of disposed products. Uniquely, we combine all the required expertise to analyze and optimize supply chain functions from acquisition of raw materials to the satisfaction of ultimate consumer demands. Through this integrative, multidisciplinary approach, advanced methodologies, and our intimate relation with the industry we deliver the highest standards in science and an impressive track record of successful implementations.
A Transition towards sustainability is crucial but will only materialize if it is warmly and actively embraced by individuals, companies and governments alike. Our researchers cover multidisciplinary expertise across the full range of individual, industrial and societal stakeholders. Considering the interest and values of all stakeholders, they research, develop and engineer key enabling methodologies and societal innovations that pave the way towards intrinsically rewarding circular economies, sustainable supply chains, and sustainable behavior of firms and of individuals.
Value of Big Data
The amount of data mined in contexts as diverse as industrial processes, health and well-being, and smart cities is growing exponentially. Our researchers and engineers investigate, develop, and implement artificially intelligent systems, not to replace, but to support and enrich human decision making and to help organizations innovate with these data. We take a multidisciplinary perspective, including computer science, operations management, psychology and philosophy, to ensure that privacy, safety and human values play are factored in to extract real value and true insight.
You will also contribute to courses in the Bachelor and Master Programmes of the department of Industrial Engineering and Innovations Sciences and/or supervising Bachelor students for their final project. The specific courses that you may be involved in will depend on your own knowledge and expertise.
