TU Delft opens up 16 positions for Assistant Professors in AI (related) research

News - 29 July 2020

TU Delft announced it is recruiting 16 talented researchers to become a member of a thriving Artificial Intelligence (AI) community that fosters cross-fertilisation between talents with different expertise and disciplines. The positions are aimed at both AI experts as well as those who wish to apply AI in their Science, Technology, Engineering or Design field.  

Working from the TU Delft AI-Labs

The new and current researchers will join forces in the so-called ‘TU Delft AI-Labs’ program. Artificial intelligence, data and digitalisation are becoming increasingly important when looking for answers to major scientific and societal challenges. In a TU Delft AI-lab, experts in ‘the fundamentals of AI technology’ along with experts in ‘AI challenges’ run a shared lab. In total, TU Delft will establish 24 TU Delft AI-Labs where 48 Tenure Trackers and 96 PhD candidates will have the opportunity to push the boundaries of science by using AI. Each team is driven by research questions which arise from scientific and societal challenges and contribute to the development and execution of domain specific education.

The TU Delft is proud to be a university where academics have the freedom to challenge and develop themselves in an international, multidisciplinary and collaborative community and is looking forward to welcome the 16 new Assistant Professors to further explore the possibilities of AI (related) research. All the vacancies can be accessed via www.tudelft.nl/careers/ai
