Headlines ILLC Events this week


  • Assistant Professor in Generative AI in the Arts

    Deadline: Thursday 12 January 2023
    Generative AI in the past decade has changed the field of artistic creativity, making us ask new questions that are relevant not only for scientific research but also for musicians and artists of all kinds. With this position, we are seeking to broaden our profile with respect to AI-assisted music generation and how AI-generated art can be positioned within the humanities and cognitive science more generally.
  • (New) PhD Project Digitale Ondersteuning voor het Leren van Nederlandse Gebarentaal

    Deadline: Thursday 12 January 2023

    Wist je dat de meeste dove kinderen horende ouders hebben die nog nooit in aanraking zijn geweest met gebarentaal op het moment dat hun kind geboren wordt? Wil jij bijdragen aan het ontwerpen, ontwikkelen en testen van nieuwe technologieën om deze ouders te ondersteunen bij het leren van gebarentaal, zodat zij beter met hun kinderen kunnen communiceren?

  • (New) PhD in Quantum-Safe Cryptography

    Deadline: Saturday 31 December 2022

    Do you enjoy working in an interdisciplinary research setting on intellectually challenging and societally relevant questions? The Informatics Institute is looking for an ambitious PhD candidate. Your research is part of the NWO-funded research project ‘Quantum Impact on Societal Security’.

    As the potential risks and consequences of cybersecurity breaches of existing cryptography by future quantum computers would be devastating, there is an urgent need to prepare for a transition to quantum-safe cryptography (QSC). Addressing the many complexities of this transition requires a multidisciplinary collaboration of scientists, financial and governmental institutions, and civil society groups. The ‘Quantum Impact on Societal Security’ (QISS) consortium will analyse the technical, ethical, legal and societal impact of this upcoming society-wide transition. QISS’s objective is to contribute to the creation of a Dutch ecosystem where quantum-safe cryptography can thrive, and mobilize this ecosystem to align technological applications with ethical, legal, and social values.
