The Human-Computer Interaction group of EDM performs research in various sub-domains including user interface software and technology, multimodal interaction, user-centered software engineering, HCI and health, physical and ubiquitous Computing (including interaction with the Internet of Things) and Human-Robot Interaction. The candidate will perform research in one of these subdomains, and will be involved in a limited number of teaching assignments in the UHasselt bachelor and master in computer science.


We are one of the leading HCI groups in Belgium and are looking for motivated people to join our team. Our team of about 20 researchers is a multi-disciplinary team but with a focus on software and technology, and hosts people from a wide variety of nationalities and backgrounds.


A PhD trains the PhD student in identifying research problems, developing and evaluating solutions for such complex problems both independently and in team, performing creative work, and to apply critical self-reflection. So we expect candidates to be keen on developing these skills.
