The HDCE unit is a multidisciplinary team performing applied research in the Human-Centric computing field, at the interplay between computer and human science. It studies Cyber-Physical Social Systems and develops Ambient Intelligence technologies that leverage connected physical spaces and objects that citizens and workers use to enhance their individual and collective experience or performance. The successful candidate will join the Multi-User Natural Interaction (INTERACT) research group, which focusses on human-computer and human-to-human interaction in collaborative scenarios. (S)he will be working on the multidisciplinary FNR CORE 2017 project ORBIT (OveRcoming Breakdowns in Teams on Interactive Tabletops) funded by the Luxembourgish National Research Fund, located at the interplay between technology and social sciences. The main objective of ORBIT is to research and implement technology prototypes for a joint problem solving (JPS) activity using an interactive tabletop. The aim is that participants interacting with the table will have the opportunity to develop collaboration methods by jointly overcoming artificially introduced breakdowns. The JPS activity and its technical solution will be designed iteratively and put into practice during workshops in two different contexts: teacher education and professional training of municipal workers. Description LIST is looking for a highly motivated researcher that holds a PhD degree in computer science to perform a key role in the ORBIT project. She/he will closely collaborate with the project team to iteratively design, implement, and evaluate the JPS activity for the interactive tangible and touch tabletop.
