Postdoc: Ethics of autonomous vehicles, with special attention to ethical analysis of human factors in trust in autonomous vehicle systems
Deadline: July 1, 2022

The Philosophy Section of the University of Twente in the Netherlands is looking for a postdoc (approx. 20-month position) in ethics of autonomous vehicles, with special attention to ethical analysis of human factors in trust in autonomous vehicle, This is part of a large European project on ethics of emerging technologies.

The principal aim of this postdoc will be to develop ethical guidance tools for the assessment of trust in autonomous vehicles, to help engineers, designers, regulators, civil society organizations, and researchers in assessing the trustworthiness of autonomous vehicles, and of different components and elements in autonomous vehicle systems. This will involve, amongst others, the development of a ‘trust relationship tool’ that allows actors to identify trust relationships that exist, or are likely to emerge, between key stakeholders in autonomous vehicle systems. This tool will complement technical assessments of trust in autonomous vehicles by looking at human and social factors in trust.
This postdoc project will also develop a novel approach to the ethical assessment and guidance of autonomous vehicle systems, which will build in part on the above mentioned tools. Autonomous vehicles, and the social-technical systems that support them, must factor in values like privacy, explicability, and human agency in addition to values like human safety, efficiency and so on. The postdoc will draw from an Ethics by Design approach to show how values like privacy, explicability, and human agency can increase the overall trustworthiness of a particular system. In seeking to make an autonomous vehicle system trustworthy, it must take into account a range of different values, and may need to make tradeoffs between these values. The postdoc will work closely with other members on the project to see how technical aspects of trust are being built into the system, and to what this means for developing a system that is worthy of human and social trust.
Additional time will be devoted to project coordination and research dissemination tasks. This will involve writing reports for the project (often together with others), and you will also have some time to work on academic publications.
The CONNECT Project
The CONNECT Project for Continuous and Efficient Cooperative Trust Management for Resilient Cooperative, connected and automated mobility (CCAM) is a prestigious three year project international project funded by the European Union’s Horizon Europe program. It has a budget of €6 million, and will start in September 2022. It has 17 participating institutions, including the University of Twente.

Assistant professor in philosophy of health and technology
Deadline: May 9, 2022

We seek a philosopher working in an area of health for an assistant professor position in the Philosophy Section at the University of Twente. The section offers a stimulating and collaborative departmental, faculty and international environment. As our new member you will publish in international refereed journals, present at conferences, apply for external funding and engage in international outreach activities.

For this position you should have an established line of research in a philosophical field related to health and health care (particularly bioethics, philosophy of medicine, health-related philosophy of science or philosophical anthropology). We expect you to develop these lines of research. You will also teach courses within your specialization area in the master programme in Philosophy of Science, Technology and Society (PSTS), as well as introductory courses in different areas of philosophy for bachelor and master programs in engineering and social science.

Its implementation requires careful investigation of the shifting roles of patients and citizens in research and clinical decision making, which takes into account different perspectives. Research could explore, through qualitative investigations for instance (e.g., focus-groups, interviews etc), how different stakeholders understand empowerment, what measures might contribute to it, and what the risks and harms are when considering empowerment to be a main goal of healthcare. We are open to considering any potential plans or proposals for engagement with health science researchers on different topics.

You are appointed as assistant professor (full-time) for an initial period of one year, with 40% research time and 60% teaching and administration.

Preferred starting date is August 1st - negotiable. The University of Twente has excellent terms of employment.

Your profile:
• A PhD in philosophy related to health and technology (particularly bioethics, philosophy of medicine, health-related philosophy of science or philosophical anthropology);
• Experience with collaborating across disciplinary boundaries;
• An interest in working directly with health scientists;
• An excellent publication track record in peer-reviewed international journals;
• An established teaching line in philosophy. The position will be 50%:50% teaching/research with staff expected to teach philosophy courses;
