Work environment


The Department of Artificial Intelligence is part of the Donders Centre for Cognition, which is one of the centres of the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour. This research institute is home to more than 600 researchers from 35 countries, and a world-class research centre devoted to understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of human cognition and behaviour in health and disease. English is the lingua franca at the institute.


The Educational Institute of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is embedded in the Faculty of Social Sciences. AI staff members are employed by both the DCC and the Educational Institute and are therefore involved in research as well as teaching. The Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Artificial Intelligence are international and therefore English-taught and host staff and students from different backgrounds and cultures. Over the last few years, the number of students and staff has increased considerably. You will work closely with the education officer.
