JOBS: 11 PhD / 12 Postdoc positions, Science of Intelligence research

APPLY BY 15 FEBRUARY 2019

Science of Intelligence Berlin - Cluster of Excellence


11 PhD and 12 Postdoc positions
with Principal Investigators at six participating institutions

Cross-disciplinary research in artificial intelligence, machine
learning, control, robotics, computer vision, behavioral biology,
cognitive science, psychology, educational science, neuroscience, and
philosophy

Starting dates: Summer / Fall 2019
Duration of positions: 3 years
Salary level: TV-L 13, 100% for all positions

What are the principles of intelligence, shared by all forms of
intelligence, no matter whether artificial or biological, whether robot,
computer program, human, or animal? And how can we apply these
principles to create intelligent technology? Answering these questions -
in an ethically responsible way - is the central scientific objective of
the new Cluster of Excellence Science of Intelligence: www.scioi.de

Researchers from a large number of analytic and synthetic disciplines -
artificial intelligence, machine learning, control, robotics, computer
vision, behavioral biology, cognitive science, psychology, educational
science, neuroscience, and philosophy - join forces to create a
multi-disciplinary research program across universities and research
institutes in Berlin. Our approach is driven by the insight that any
method, concept, and theory must demonstrate its merits by contributing
to the intelligent behavior of a synthetic artifact, such as a robot or
a computer program. These artifacts represent the shared "language"
across disciplines, enabling the validation, combination, transfer, and
extension of research results. Thus we expect to attain cohesion among
disciplines, which currently produce their own theories and empirical
findings about aspects of intelligence.

Interdisciplinary research projects have been defined which combine
analytic and synthetic research and which address key aspects of
individual, social, and collective intelligence. In addition the Science
of Intelligence graduate program promotes the cross-disciplinary
education of young scientists on a Master, PhD, and postdoctoral level.
All PhD students associated with the cluster are expected to join the
Science of Intelligence doctoral program:
www.scioi.de/education/doctoral-program

The cluster welcomes applications from all disciplines that contribute
to intelligence research.

Information on the required documents and the application process
(including deadline and timeline for reviews and interviews) may be
obtained from:

Further information on the individual PhD and postdoctoral research
projects is available at:

Applicants wishing to apply for several projects need to provide
separate applications for each project.
