calendar_month 03 Feb 2015, 00:00
In the context of the ongoing collaboration between the Data Science Centre Eindhoven (DSC/e) and Philips, we are looking for a candidate with a strong background in visualization, computer graphics, and/or human computer interaction for the PhD position - Visual Analytics for Healthcare Workflows.


The Data Science Centre Eindhoven (DSC/e) is TU/e’s response to the growing volume and importance of data and the need for data & process scientists (). The DSC/e has recently started a long-term cooperation with Philips Research Eindhoven on data science, and as a first concrete action, 18 PhD students are being hired.

These students will form a strong research community, which works on scientific and industrial challenges together with researchers from the TU/e and Philips. This vacancy is for the PhD position "Visual Analytics for Healthcare Workflows”, which is part of the "Optimizing Healthcare Workflows" theme.

Visual Analytics
The PhD will be appointed at the TU/e as a member of the VIS group, but also spend substantial time within Philips and EIT co-location center at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. The VIS group is one of the leading groups in information visualization, focussing on getting insight in large amounts of abstract data, typically combinations of networks, hierarchies and multi-variate data, with spatial or dynamic aspects.

Visual analytics involves the integration of methods from data mining and visualization, aiming to combine the strengths of these approaches. In this project we closely cooperate with the AIS group of TU/e, which is the leading group in process mining.
