Three PhD Positions in Cognitive Science & Artificial Intelligence in Tilburg

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.
