[isabelle] Research Positions in a project on AI Verification (Types, Programming Languages, Security, Machine Learning )

[Apologies for multiple postings. This is a final call for applications in
the following project:]

AI Secure and Explainable by Construction:

Multiple Research Positions (3 Doctoral, 5 Post-doctoral)

available at Heriot-Watt, Edinburgh and Strathclyde Universities, Scotland,

Start date: 1 September 2020 or soon after; End date: 2023

Postdoctoral Salary Scale: £31,866 to £40,322 per annum

PhD funding: covering PhD fees and stipend for 3.5 years

We encourage interested applicants to contact us informally ASAP.

The project has sufficient flexibility to mitigate the effects of COVID-19,
i.e. by accommodating later start date or remote working.

The project aims to design novel methods and tools for verification of
complex AI systems. It spans several subjects: type theory, automated and
interactive theorem proving, security, AI and machine learning, autonomous
systems, natural language processing and generation, legal aspects of AI.
It will cover two main application areas: autonomous cars and chatbots,
drawing from expertise and infrastructure provided by industrial partners
working in these two areas. The project has a significant international
span, with 12 partners from Academia and Industry in Europe (France,
Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Norway) and the US. Researchers joining
this project will have excellent opportunities to travel to international
conferences, organise scientific events, spend time with industrial
partners, collaborate with academic leaders in the field, develop their own
research profiles as well as gain experience in other AI and CS disciplines.
