        Subject: Job Offer: Digital Ethics

The UZH Digital Society Initiative / Institute of Biomedical Ethics &
History of Medicine of the University of Zurich/Switzerland offer a
Post-Doc position "Digital Ethics" (80-100%)

for 2 years, earliest start in January 2017. The position is funded by the
Swiss National Research Program "Big Data" and the European CANVAS
Consortium - Constructing an Alliance for Value-driven Cybersecurity.
Deadline for applications is December 15 2016 (remains open until position
is filled).

Big Data and Cybersecurity pose important and urgent ethical problems. The
position will allow to carry out research on ethical challenges of applying
Big Data in the insurance industry and on the ethics of cybersecurity. The
Postdoctoral Researcher will review the literature, elaborate new analyses
and hypotheses, and publish the results, in collaboration with two research
teams coordinated by PD Dr. sc. ETH Markus Christen, PI of the project
"Between Solidarity and Personalization - Dealing with Ethical and Legal Big
Data Challenges in the Insurance Industry" and coordinator of the Horizon
2020 project CANVAS. The selected candidate will also contribute to the
dissemination of the findings through presentations, the organization of
workshops, participation into conferences, and several output deliverables
of CANVAS such as a MOOC on the Ethics of Cybersecurity. 

We seek for candidates who have completed a doctorate in Philosophy or any
other relevant discipline (for example Computer Science, Economics,
Geography, Law, Psychology, or Sociology) with a demonstrable strong
interest in ethics. Excellent writing, presentation abilities, and
analytical skills are required. A record of publications in international
peer-reviewed journals and the proven ability to obtain research funding,
are desirable. Knowledge of German is of advantage. 

We offer a challenging position in an inspiring environment, bridging
science and industry, ethics, law and technology. The position will allow
for networking with leading industry partners such as Swiss Re or F-Secure.
You will be integrated in the UZH Digital Society Initiative, which is the
new platform of the University of Zurich for promoting critical,
interdisciplinary reflection and innovation on all aspects of the
digitization of society and the sciences. The research group is located at
the Institute of Biomedical Ethics & History of Medicine and consists of an
interdisciplinary group at the interface of health, science and society.
Your Supervisor is PD Dr. sc. ETH Markus Christen, who is also the Managing
Director of the UZH Digital Society Initiative.

Apply: Please email a cover letter, CV, and writing sample plus contact
details of two referees to PD Dr. Markus Christen (christen at ethik.uzh.ch
<mailto:christen at ethik.uzh.ch> ). For all further informal enquiries, please
contact Markus Christen. There will be a screening and interview process.
