This vacancy is for PhD position in transparent predictive analytics. Predictive analytics is increasingly used in industry, business, finance, government, healthcare, and education, using methods from machine learning, data mining and statistics. The use of predictive analytics can lead to improved and efficient decision making but the models that are generated are often highly complex. This makes it hard to understand, trust, and judge the results of such models for humans.

This PhD student will be supervised by prof.dr. Mykola Pechenizkiy (TU/e) and prof.dr. Maurits Kaptein (TiU). However, in this project we put the human central, and strongly believe that close collaboration with experts on visual analytics, cognitive psychology, and human machine interaction is needed to make major steps forward in advancing interpretable machine learning research. The PhD student will be appointed in the Data Mining group at the Department of Computer Science, TU Eindhoven and work in the project team located at the JADS Marinburg campus in 's-Hertogenbosch, which is fully dedicated to data science.JADS, the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science is a unique collaboration of two renowned universities, TU Eindhoven and Tilburg University, bringing together their top academics to further the emerging and multidisciplinary academic field of data science.
