Vacant positions

Research Scientist, Cognitive Psychology 
Halden 
Description:

The department of Human-Centred Digitalization (HCD) seeks to enable organisations to exploit the full potential of emerging technologies and analytics by producing state-of-the-art knowledge on how to develop and adapt technology and organisations based on human strengths and limitations.  The department core research areas are human-technology interaction, human-systems performance analysis and evaluation, and work systems design. We perform empirical research in simulator-based operational environments in the MTO-labs as well as in the industry, on how individuals and organisations efficiently and safely interact with increasingly more advanced and intelligent technology; on how research methods can enable integration of new knowledge into the design of systems, operations and on-line decision making; and how adaptive expertise can be engineered into organisations to support performance in changing environments. A substantial part of the research activities are performed within the international OECD Halden Reactor Project and in research projects for the Research Council of Norway. Bilateral and multilateral projects are carried out for the nuclear industry, the petroleum industry, and other industries.

We seek to address the following main questions:
How do individuals interact with increasingly intelligent technologies?
How can we best enable humans to perform in digital organisations?
How can emerging technologies be used for innovating our ways of working?

We invite applications for:  Research scientist with competence in human factors and cognitive psychology and/or interest in Human Reliability Analysis
