Working at SMIT: You as our future colleague?
SMIT employees (or SMITTERS as we lovingly call them) are curious creatures by nature. They enjoy lifelong learning. They are flexible and creative in findings ways around any obstacle they encounter. They have an entrepreneurial spirit and they combine technological and societal interests. They love building bridges between the world of academia and other organisations, be they companies, non-profits, or otherwise.

Our research group is both part of imec and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. That makes it a dynamic research environment that combines applied and fundamental research. Our multi-disciplinary group hosts over 60 researchers with backgrounds in Communication Sciences, Economics, Psychology, Design, … who together work on 3 core application domains: Cities, Health & Work, and Media.
