With us, you’re driving research forward!

PhD in the industry

Researcher AI in nursing care planning (m/f/d)

Augsburg Ingolstadt Leipzig Münster Erlangen Berlin

You want to research modern AI methods and thus improve everyday life in hospitals? In our new research project, you will develop an approach to support care planners with intelligent, interactive decision support. To do this, you will develop models for predicting care needs and capacity and use machine learning to improve the predictions, for example. Together with the University of Augsburg, you combine these models with optimization methods to suggest possible staffing plans and support users’ planning decisions.

In the agile and young XITASO research team, you will dedicate yourself full-time to this exciting topic while also pursuing your own PhD project. We support you with our competencies in the digitalization of healthcare processes as well as research and development. You will shape the research project in cooperation with the University of Augsburg with its Chair of Health Care Operations / Health Information Management and the Augsburg University Hospital. With your applied research, you will pave the way into practice for methods of AI and mathematical optimization – for the benefit of nurses and patients.

You can individually design your way of working with us. We are very flexible in terms of location (office or hybrid) and working time models – as best suits you and your work-life integration.
