One postdoctoral position in the project “Explainability, Data Sovereignty, and Trust” – TU Dortmund

Dear all,

The Lamarr Institute for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence invites applications for one postdoctoral position in the project “Explainability, Data Sovereignty, and Trust”. The project will investigate what explanainability and transparency of artificial intelligent (AI) systems can contribute to an individual’s data sovereignty and privacy. This is a fixed-term 2-year position, which will be located at the Department of Humanities and Theology and the Department of Computer Science (with JProf. Eva Schmidt and Prof. Jakob Rehof). Deadline for applications is Sept. 20, 2023.

We’re looking for applications from researchers who have a degree in practical philosophy and/or with a focus on philosophical issues of AI and who ideally have interdisciplinary research experience, specifically regarding computer science, political science, or law. The research focus will be thinking about how explainable AI and issues of data sovereignty and privacy connect. The role of this position within the Lamarr Institute will be to strengthen interdisciplinary cooperations and research involving, but not limited to, philosophy and computer science.

The complete ad can be found on Philjobs<> as well as on TU Dortmund’s website here<> (German) and here<> (English).

Excellent command of English is a prerequisite, but you don’t need to be a German speaker, as this is solely a research position. Start of the position is as soon as possible, I expect the beginning of 2024. If you have any questions, I’m happy to answer them at<>

All the best,
Eva Schmidt
