3-year Post-doc Position: Application of Augmented Reality (AR) in
Motion Analysis

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft)
Faculty of Technology, Policy, and Management
Department of Multi-Actor Systems
Systems Engineering Section


Job description
Technology enables participation. The goal of this post-doc position is to
design and evaluate the use of augmented reality to support analysis of
motoric functions, to develop a motion phenogram, providing a means for
reflection on motion for both the individual and the medical practitioner.

The project Technology in Motion (TIM) is to be pursued by a consortium
with Leiden University Medical Centre and the University of Amsterdam.
Research within the Systems Engineering Section of Delft University of
Technology extends current research on presence, participation and virtual
co-location in merging realities based on innovative head-mounted devices
supporting 3D vision.

The candidate
- has a PhD in Computer Science or a comparable field
- speaks and writes English fluently
- has practical and theoretical background on interaction in multimodal
- has practical and theoretical background on virtual or augmented reality
- has experience in requirements engineering, software design and
- has experience with different data analysis techniques
- has experience with quantitative and qualitative research methods
- has communicative and social skills required for interdisciplinary

Conditions of employment
TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible work
week, free high-speed Internet access from home, and the option of

Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution
offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at
an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are
strongly oriented towards applicability. TU Delft develops technologies
for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic
vitality. At TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical
sciences and society converge. TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique
laboratories, research institutes and schools.

At the Faculty of Technology, Policy, and Management, the Department of
Multi-Actor Systems (MAS) develops innovative concepts, methods, and tools
for understanding and facilitating multi-actor coordination and
decision-making in large-scale, socio-technical systems. Its research
focus is on governance and participation through coordination and
decision-making processes (ranging from crowd-sourcing to operational
planning decisions to international policy negotiations), while the
research focus spans a diversity of socio-technical systems, such as urban
areas, traffic management systems, energy markets, information systems for
e-business, e-collaboration and e-government, and systems for water
management and flood control.

Today's society is in transition. Technology is changing the way people
communicate and coordinate their activities in new social structures, with
new forms of distributed governance. The design and management of such
systems is the focus of the Participatory Systems Initiative - Systems
Engineering's research programme (see
Participatory systems are socio-technical ecological systems, such as
large-scale, distributed infrastructural systems, that enable and support
participation in today's networked society. Distributed energy markets,
the Smart Grid, dynamic supply chain management, and crisis/emergency
management are examples of such systems. These are systems in which
realities merge, in which participation and presence acquire a different
