  • THIS IS A READVERTISEMENT OF VACANCY 128447. PREVIOUS CANDIDATES NEED NOT REAPPLY.

    The Oxford Internet Institute is a leading centre for research into individual, collective, and institutional behaviour on the Internet. We are looking for a full-time Postdoctoral Researcher to collaborate with Professor Luciano Floridi on the ethical challenges posed by digital technologies (digital ethics).

    The Postdoctoral Researcher will be a member of the Digital Ethics Lab, will elaborate new analyses and hypotheses, review the literature, and publish the results, in collaboration with Professor Floridi. The selected candidate will also contribute to the dissemination of the findings through presentations, the organisation of workshops, participation into conferences, and social media.
    The position is suited to candidates who have recently completed a doctorate on any relevant discipline, especially philosophy, ethics, law, sociology. The list is not exclusive and a degree in computer science, AI, machine learning, economics, STS, and geography (this list is only indicative) is also relevant, if combined with a proven interest (e.g., publication, organisation of workshops and panel, and talks) in ethical, legal, or social impact analysis of digital technologies.

    Excellent writing, presentation abilities, and analytical skills are required. A record of publications in international peer-reviewed journals and the proven ability to obtain research funding, both commensurate with the stage of the candidate’s academic career, are very desirable.

    This position is available from the 1 September 2017 for 18 months in the first instance, with the possibility of renewal thereafter, funding permitting.

    Please note that you may only apply through the Oxford University’s recruitment website.

    Only applications received before 12:00pm BST on Monday 26 June 2017 will be considered.

    Interviews for those short-listed are currently planned to take place on week commencing 17 July 2017.
