Three PhD Positions in Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence in Tilburg
deadline: May 21, 2018
starting date: summer/fall 2018
The Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence department at Tilburg University
(The Netherlands) is looking for three enthusiastic colleagues for PhD positions
on the project VIBE (Virtual Humans in the Brabant Economy). This project aims
to develop embodied conversational agents in virtual reality that look and
behave like humans both verbally and non-verbally and can be deployed in
hospital settings. Together with 13 partners, including Tilburg University,
universities of applied sciences, several technology firms, the Netherlands
Aerospace Center, and three hospitals, we will build these agents for virtual,
mixed and augmented reality environments, train these agents using sensing
technologies and data science techniques, and deploy and test the agents in
three hospitals that partner in this project.
The successful PhD candidate holds a (research) master in a relevant area and is
expected to have an academic mindset with an entrepreneurial interest, and is
supposed to be enthusiastic, creative, and solution-driven. The candidate is
comfortable with working in a multidisciplinary research team, has an excellent
command of English and good professional communication skills. Specifically, the
candidate has a strong background in areas such as cognitive science, computer
science, data science, engineering, computational linguistics and virtual, mixed
or augmented reality.
