02 Postdocs in Computer Science ‘legal tech’ 485 views

The Institute for Information and Computing Science (iCIS) at Radboud University is looking for two postdoctoral researchers in computer science for foundational research into legal tech. This opportunity provides a chance to dig into the fundamental assumptions underlying computer science (CS), teasing out the implications they may have for real life applications, notably those of legal tech.

About the position:
  • Both postdocs will be part of the cross-disciplinary research team of the ERC Advanced Grant project on Counting as a Human Being in the Era of Computation Law (COHUBICOL).
  • They will inquire into the architecture and foundational issues of:
  • Machine learning applications, e.g. prediction of judgements.
  • Self-executing code, e.g. ensuring compliance by design, in the context of legal practice, while the focus will be on assumptions of computer science and their implications.
  • One of the postdocs will focus on machine learning, the other on self-driving code.

Requirements:

  • Applicant must hold PhD in Computer Science, with a specialisation in either: theoretical Computer Science, with a focus on code-driven architecture or data-driven architecture (ML); or code- or data-driven architecture, with a demonstrated affinity with theoretical Computer Science.
  • An advantage could be that the candidate has a minor in philosophy and/or science, technology & society studies.
  • Academic writing skills, demonstrated fluency in English.

Applications:

Apply online and the application should include the following attachments:

  • CV, including degrees (and grade list), scientific publications, work experience, and language skills.
  • An expression of interest (1500 words), explaining why you are interested in COHUBICOL, what research questions you intend to develop, and what makes the candidate a suitable one.
  • Two reference letters with contact details.
