Job description

Within the UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous System Node on Verifiability, we
have an exciting opening for a postdoctoral researcher on testing ethical
aspects of AI. These include testing aspects such as fairness and bias, as
well as privacy and explainability. You will be working within a vigorous
multi-disciplinary environment of the Trustworthy Autonomous System program
with researchers across many disciplines designing and verifying the
autonomous systems of the future. You will be using and advancing the state
of the art in testing (validation and verification) methods to provide
assurances of ethical decision making i n sub-symbolic AI components, such
as neural networks and statistical machine learning techniques.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 18 months

This is a full-time post - 100% full time equivalent
