Hybrid Societies: Humans Interacting with Embodied Technologies Call for Applications
Call for Applications | TU Chemnitz
The Collaborative Research Centre (CRC 1410) Hybrid Societies – Humans Interacting with Embodied Technologies welcomes applications for the following open job offers for an employment from 01 March 2020 - 31 December 2023.
We are accepting applications as of right now.
Application deadlines for these positions vary, please refer to the individual job offer.
Research Environment and Tasks: Research in the CRC 1410 Hybrid Societies pertains to the interaction with Embodied Digital Technologies (EDTs) as artificial bodies moving in real or virtual environments (www.hybrid-societies.org). Interdisciplinary research in the CRC is guided by two leading questions to ultimately ensure smooth and efficient encounters between humans and embodied technologies in hybrid societies: What is required so that humans can coordinate with EDTs as smoothly as with conspecifics? How to design EDTs to meet these requirements? Cooperating researchers from psychology, engineering, computer science, human movement science, linguistics and gesture studies, sociology, law studies, physics, and mathematics scientifically inquire the interaction of humans with EDTs from the level of single actions up to the attribution of intentionality.
Chemnitz University of Technology is committed to ensuring an environment that provides equal opportunities and promotes diversity. To increase the number of women working in science and teaching, applications by women with the required qualifications are explicitly desired. Persons with disabilities are encouraged to apply. They will be given preference if equally qualified.
Employment will be governed by the provisions of the German law on fixed-term contracts in academia (Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz).
