Open PhD/Postdoc position in Human-Computer Interaction at KU Leuven

The HCI research group at KU Leuven in Belgium is looking for new members to join our team!

We have an open position (fully funded) on HCI aspects of recommender systems. We welcome applications of both postdocs and PhD candidates.
The focus of the research for the position is on user interfaces for recommender systems that suggest items that match user preferences. The overall objective is to research the use of information visualization techniques to give end-users insight into the rationale of recommender systems to increase trust in recommendations.

Funding is available immediately. The research will be carried out at the Department of Computer Science of KU Leuven.

- a very good background and interest in human-computer interaction research
