Position: 10 Early Stage Researchers (PhD students or PostDocs) specializing in explainability, robustness and uncertainty of AI systems in medicine
Institution: Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt
Location: Braunschweig, Niedersachsen, Germany
Duties: Artificial Intelligence (AI) is growing into the health sector where increasing implementation of AI in various medical settings will have a major impact on patient care: AI-enabled tools offer the attractive prospect of enabling healthcare professionals to find solutions for complex problems in a time-efficient manner. AI systems do entail economic and social benefits, but they also bear risks. The PTB is working towards minimising these risks by providing a sound basis for trustworthy AI systems. To reinforce our interdisciplinary team in AI research for the duration of 3 years starting by 1 June 2021, we are looking for: 10 Early Stage Researchers (PhD students or PostDocs)
Requirements: hold a Master‘s degree with a grade above average in a relevant scientific discipline as identified in the project descriptions; have prior research experience in a field relevant for the respective project (if applying for a PostDoc position); work well-structured independently as well as and in a team; have excellent communication skills in spoken and written English; are apt to write and present scientific papers; are willing to travel between the sites of PTB and to other locations in Germany and abroad; are eligible for a work permit for Germany
