The department of Computer Science has approximately 170 members, including 35 tenured staff members and 90 PhD students. The department is comprised of 14 research groups that collaborate on six key themes: Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics, Computer Systems, User-Centric Data Science, Software and Sustainability, and Theoretical Computer Science. The department benefits from the rapidly growing interest in AI, data science, and cybersecurity, as well as the investments in Dutch Computer Science research. The department recently moved into a new building with state-of-the-art labs.
Our strategic objectives are twofold: Firstly, to conduct cutting-edge research on key topics within a coherent program, without attempting to cover the entire field. Secondly, to ensure that our work is highly relevant to both the scientific and societal spheres, by combining fundamental, strategic, and application-oriented research, resulting in high-impact publications and research software. We prioritize scientific rigor and strive to be leaders in a global, competitive landscape. Our inter- and multidisciplinary research contributes to various societal domains, including humanities, social sciences, and health.
Our key strategic choices are to attract top talent, optimize internal cohesion and collaboration, form networks with key scientific and societal partners, invest in joint infrastructure, and achieve high societal relevance. We promote collaboration between researchers from different groups, specifically junior staff, and invest in mid-level (associate professor) positions to stimulate collaboration. We aim for an open management structure, and we have numerous strong and formalized collaborations with key scientific and societal partners. Join us in shaping the future of computer science.
