Are you interested in the societal impacts and major legal issues posed by the development of Artificial Intelligence and new technologies, including the Metaverse? Do you have a PhD in legal studies (preferably digital law, intellectual property law or European/International/Human Rights law)? Are you ready to dive into the issues that concern protection of personal data and privacy, freedom of expression and other human rights in the era of AI? Do you have an open and curious mind?
If the answer is yes, come and work with a dynamic team of researchers in the Multidisciplinary Institute of Artificial Intelligence, at Grenoble Alpes University. Apply here for a Research Fellow/Post Doc position at the Chair on the Legal and Regulatory Implications of Artificial Intelligence (this is a one year contract, with the possibility of renewal).
The main objective of the Chair on the Legal and Regulatory Implications of Artificial Intelligence is to investigate how to find the right balance between regulation and innovation. The Chair assesses the relevance and effectiveness of existing tools (such as the GDPR or rules that concern human rights, non-discrimination and competition) and actively participates in the debate regarding the development of new rules at the EU level (as well as the current debates on the adoption of the AI Act), at national level and within other organisations, such as the OECD or the Council of Europe.
The Chair is hosted at INRIA, at Grenoble Alpes University, in a dynamic scientific environment and in a region that offers great quality of life and a fantastic range of outdoor activities.
You will conduct in-depth research into the fields of data protection, data governance and artificial intelligence and be part of a multidisciplinary research team that includes lawyers, economists and computer scientists. You will also be given the opportunity to participate in events and activities that involve the Chair and its partners in France and other countries.
Very good proficiency in English and French is required.
