Do you want to help us to set up the AI, Media & Democracy Lab?

We are looking for 3 postdoctoral researchers:
  • a postdoctoral researcher communication scientist;
  • a postdoctoral researcher AI, data science or computational social sciences
  • a postdoctoral researcher in information law;
The AI, Media and Democracy ELSA Lab’s aim is to set up an experimental space and testbed for novel ways of applying AI in the media. Journalists, media professionals, designers, citizens, researchers and public and societal partners bring in their challenges in using AI in the media. The lab investigates how AI-driven applications in the media change the public sphere, civic engagement and economic competition. We will develop and test new AI-applications to help solve problems such as disinformation, algorithmic bias and filter bubbles. Together with our partners we will also (co)-create new ethical and legal frameworks for responsible uses of AI that align with fundamental rights, public values and the European regulatory framework. Apply by the 13th of June!
