We present predictions and projections for hadron-in-jet measurements and electron-jet azimuthal correlations at the future electron-ion collider (EIC). These observables directly probe the three-dimensional structure of hadrons, in particular, the quark transversity and Sivers parton distributions and the Collins fragmentation functions. We explore the feasibility of these experimental measurements by detector simulations and discuss detector requirements. We conclude that jet observables have the potential to enhance the three-dimensional imaging EIC program.
