Job description

The Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS) constitutes a unique concept in which an integrated approach to Data Science is created by combining the exact sciences of the Eindhoven University of Technology, with the social sciences of Tilburg University. JADS boasts three campuses at Tilburg, Eindhoven and Den Bosch. The JADS Campus at the Mariënburg monastery in Den Bosch revolves around research, education and valorisation on data entrepreneurship. The Den Bosch campus has an opening for a scientific programmer, a professional figure capable of supporting research operations with the development, maintenance, and evolution of scientific computing software as well as project prototypes inherent to (but not limited by) the currently running EU projects at JADS, for example, EU HorizonEurope COMFORTAGE, EU HorizonEurope ONCOSCREEN, and EU ISF MARIT-D.


The scientific programmer will support the individual JADS researchers by designing, constructing and rolling out experimental prototypes. The technology readiness level of these prototypes typically resides between TRL-3 and TRL-7. On the one hand, JADS researchers are involved in various national and European research projects in the field of data analysis, data engineering and data entrepreneurship. The research finds its application in areas such as agrofood, health care, manufacturing, services, and crime and safety. On the other hand, the scientific programmer will act as amanuensis during tutorials, and he / she will play a pivotal role in the SAFEGUARD ICAI lab space—being developed jointly with Deloitte b.v.—that students and researchers can experiment with in the application of data science and AI software engineering for the purpose of the next generation of trustworthy compliance and auditing.
