WASP-funded postdoc position at the Division for Interaction Design and Software Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology and University of Gothenburg.

Project description

Together with the successful applicant, we aim to investigate, develop, and systematically evaluate automated approaches to improve the safety, security, and adaptability of cyber-physical systems, so that they better meet humans’ needs. In the past, we have developed approaches to elicit quality requirements from human users, to explain the quality tradeoffs in automated planning using machine learning techniques, and to monitor systems in an adaptive way. Depending on the context that a system operates in, it might be more or less desirable to ask a human for help, start collaborative tasks, or to give control to a human user. How can safety and security constraints be guaranteed in such contexts? How can systems plan their actions in a human-aware way? How can possible attacks and faults in cyber-physical systems be effectively identified and mitigated?

As part of the postdoc position, you will have the opportunity to engage in both empirical research and constructive research. Constructive research involves designing architectures of human-aware systems, programming, or developing formal models to reason about these systems. Empirical research includes running experiments and performing studies with humans to assess the usefulness of the developed approaches.
You will be collaborating with a group of PhD students working on similar topics and have the opportunity to support the group leader in supervision activities.

The successful applicant’s position will be funded by WASP. Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) is Sweden’s largest individual research program ever, a major national initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education and faculty recruitment. The program addresses research on artificial intelligence and autonomous systems acting in collaboration with humans, adapting to their environment through sensors, information and knowledge, and forming intelligent systems-of-systems. The vision of WASP is excellent research and competence in artificial intelligence, autonomous systems and software for the benefit of Swedish industry.
