Job description
The assistant or associate professors we are looking for will strengthen the research on Explainable Artificial Intelligence in the field of human-agent collaboration and relates to the research portfolio of the Interactive Intelligence group. Their research contributes to the mission of Delft University of Technology: combining science, design and engineering in a socially responsible manner. They will supervise PhD and MSc students, acquire external funding, teach and develop new courses at undergraduate and graduate levels in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science, and undertake managerial tasks as required. They will actively collaborate with other research institutes, industry, NGOs or GOs.
We aim to strengthen our research in Explainable Artificial Intelligence in the field of human-agent collaboration. Relevant topics of research include, but are not limited to, social robotics, conversational agents, affective computing, normative, reflective and strategic reasoning by applying Knowledge Representation techniques and/or Machine Learning. Candidates working on related challenges are also welcome to apply.
Faculty | Department | Research Group
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the social relevance of its research programmes. The faculty's excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research. Within this interdisciplinary and international setting the faculty employs more than 1100 employees, including about 400 graduate students and about 2100 students. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software engineering, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics.
The department of Intelligent Systems (INSY) conceptualizes computer science methodologies to sense, abstract, learn, reason, elicitate and adapt data and their meaning in ways that respect human values in order to increase human effectiveness in well-being and social innovation. At the heart of the department is therefore the research and teaching in computer science theory, algorithms and solutions for information processing systems that support humans (e.g. robotics), new products (e.g. internet services), and science (e.g. biology)    
The positions are embedded in the Interactive Intelligence group that focuses on interaction between humans, agents, robots and other intelligent systems. We have a strong research track record on intelligent interactive agents that can learn, plan and reason under uncertainty and have the social skills to use and understand emotions and norms. These agents may serve as coach, decision support agent, or companion, and are used in a wide variety of applications including therapy, health, decision making, and entertainment. We contribute to the Delft Design for Values Institute, the Delft Robotics Institute, and the Delft Data Science Institute. 
We welcome applicants that have a clear vision on how their research fits with the aim of Explainable AI and the research in the interactive intelligence group, see topics. Candidates should have a PhD in Artificial Intelligence or related field, are active researchers with a multidisciplinary mindset, and are enthusiastic team players. Having experience in university level teaching and applying for research funding would be appreciated.
