The postdoc candidate will work together with other researchers on investigating factors influencing human-system partnership in the context of cyber physical systems.
This new research direction aims to address research challenges of adaptation- 1) transparency, (i.e. how to achieve transparency of adaptation in human-
system cooperation) , 2) engagement (i.e. how to involve humans in decision making and task execution), 3) resiliency (i.
e. how to guarantee safe and reliable operation under misuse and system failure), 4) responsiveness (i.e. how to manage proper timing of adaptation), and 5) robustness (i.
e. how to facilitate adaptation to context and mitigate negative effects of the context). The successful candidate will have the freedom to specify the focus of his / her research within the above-
mentioned domains of research.
Though the research primarily investigates theoretical aspects of human-system partnership, practical application of the developed theories is expected to be validated in various domains of applications (e.
g. medical assistive devices, adaptive haptic feedback, human robot cooperation in manufacturing and automotive applications).
The candidate will be offered the opportunity to cooperate with start-ups, mentor graduate students to accelerate his / her research.
The successful candidate is in possession of a doctoral degree in human computer interaction, or systems engineering with affinity for human factors and proven experience in experimentation.
He or she should have a good understanding of (and be fascinated by) machine learning technologies, artificial intelligence and / or human modelling.
The candidate is expected to publish her / his research in scientific journals and conferences. The candidate should be capable of performing independent research and working in a team on research projects.
He / she should have an open personality and good communication skills to closely cooperate with colleagues, and students.
