Qualification Details

The applicants with a PhD degree in Human-Computer Interaction, Computer-Supported Cooperative Work, or a closely related field are preferred. Outstanding spoken and written communication skills in English are essential.

Responsibilities/Job Description

In this project, we will establish a thorough understanding of the needs of citizens in making sense of explanations on algorithmic-driven decisions and contribute a software platform that supports this aim. As such, the project leans heavily on interdisciplinarity, which is expected to be reflected in the profile of the applicant. In particular, proven experience and/or interest in the area of Human-Centred AI is desired.

In addition to the postdoc, the project team will also consist of two PhD students and the principal investigator, Associate Professor Niels van Berkel. The project offers a large amount of freedom and autonomy in terms of research directions within the umbrella of Human-Computer Interaction. Scientific dissemination is expected to focus on venues such as CHI, CSCW, IUI, TOCHI, IJHCS, and the HCI journal.For further information about the project, see here.

The selected candidate will be part of the Human-Centered Computing research group, an ambitious and supportive research environment in which we study the design, development, and use of interactive computer systems through empirical and experimental methods. The group operates at the intersection between psychology and the social sciences, on the one hand, and computer science and technology, on the other.

You can learn about the research group here.
