You will be expected to:
Faculty of Social Sciences
The position will be embedded in the Artificial Intelligence department of the Faculty of Social Sciences. The research in this position will align with the research programme of the Donders Centre for Cognition (DCC), which is part of the Donders Institute. The faculty's ambition is to become one of the top social science institutes in Europe, providing high-quality research and study programmes that rank among the best in the Netherlands. The Faculty of Social Sciences is the largest faculty at Radboud University, with a total of around 4,500 students spread over three educational institutions.
The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour is a world-class interfaculty research institute that houses more than 700 researchers devoted to understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of the human mind. Research at the Donders Institute is focused around four themes: 1. Language and communication, 2. Perception, action and control, 3. Plasticity and memory, and 4. Neural computation and Neurotechnology. Excellent, state-of-the-art research facilities are available for the broad range of neuroscience research conducted at the Donders Institute. The Donders has been assessed by an international evaluation committee as 'excellent' and is considered a very stimulating environment for top researchers, as well as for young talent. The Donders Institute fosters a collaborative, multidisciplinary, supportive research environment with a diverse international staff. English is the lingua franca at the Institute.
The School of Artificial Intelligence offers study programmes in Cognitive Computing and Intelligent Technology and lets its students unravel human intelligence and recreate it in smart and responsible AI systems.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 22,000 students and 5,000 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent and collaboration. You have a part to play!
