Call for applications - Science of Intelligence Berlin - Cluster of
11 PhD and 12 Postdoc positions
Cross-disciplinary research in artificial intelligence, machine
learning, control, robotics, computer vision, behavioral biology,
cognitive science, psychology, educational science, neuroscience, and
Starting dates: Summer / Fall 2019
Duration: 3 years
Salary level: TV-L 13, 100%
What are the principles of intelligence, shared by all forms of
intelligence, no matter whether artificial or biological, whether robot,
computer program, human, or animal? And how can we apply these
principles to create intelligent technology? Answering these questions -
in an ethically responsible way - is the central scientific objective of
the new Cluster of Excellence Science of Intelligence (www.scioi.de).
Researchers from a large number of analytic and synthetic disciplines -
artificial intelligence, machine learning, control, robotics, computer
vision, behavioral biology, cognitive science, psychology, educational
science, neuroscience, and philosophy - join forces to create a
multi-disciplinary research program across universities and research
institutes in Berlin. Our approach is driven by the insight, that any
method, concept, and theory must demonstrate its merits by contributing
to the intelligent behavior of a synthetic artifact, such as a robot or
a computer program. These artifacts represent the shared “language”
across disciplines, enabling the validation, combination, transfer, and
extension of research results. Thus we expect to attain cohesion among
disciplines, which currently produce their own theories and empirical
findings about aspects of intelligence.
Interdisciplinary research projects have been defined which combine
analytic and synthetic research and which address key aspects of
individual, social, and collective intelligence. In addition the Science
of Intelligence graduate program promotes the cross-disciplinary
education of young scientists on a Master, PhD, and postdoctoral level.
All PhD students associated with the cluster are expected to join the
Science of Intelligence doctoral program
The cluster welcomes applications from all disciplines that contribute
to intelligence research. Applications shall be uploaded through the
(www.scioi.de/call-for-applications/application-process), where details
of the individual research projects
(www.scioi.de/call-for-applications/open-positions) are also available.
Please submit your applications by 15 February 2019 in order to receive
full consideration. Applicants wishing to apply for several projects
need to upload separate applications for each project.
