Open PhD Position

Human factors have a crucial interplay with modern AI and NLP development, from the way data is obtained (e.g. in low-resource scenarios) to the need to understand and control models (e.g. through global explainability methods). AI technology also does not exist in a vacuum but must be validated together with the application experts and stakeholders it should serve.

To further explore these questions, we are looking for a doctoral researcher to join our team at LMU Munic​h to work on topics of human-centric AI and NLP. As a candidate, you need a Master’s degree and should have experience in machine learning, natural language processing, AI-focused human-computer interaction, or a mixture of these.

The position is affiliated with the Munich Center for Machine Learning and is fully funded for three years on the pay grade TV-L E13 (100%), and no teaching is required.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Michael Hedderich (hedderich at cis. For applications, please send a CV, a study transcript, and a description of your research interests and goals. The application deadline is June 9th, and applications are processed as they come in. Later applications might be considered.
