Dec 1st 2023
CZS Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Law at the University of Tübingen
It is devoted to research on the reciprocal implications between artificial intelligence and law. Tübingen constitutes a preeminent research location on artificial intelligence in Germany and the EU. The AI activities of Tübingen University and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems make Tübingen a thriving hub for AI research, fostered by the Cluster of Excellence "Machine Learning for Science", the Tübingen AI Center, and the Ellis Insitute. Moreover, our law faculty boasts a rich tradition of international and interdisciplinary research, including the distinction of hosting Europe's inaugural chair in law and artificial intelligence. Within this expansive research milieu, the CZS Institute for AI and Law unites senior academics as well as postdoctoral and doctoral researchers from computer science and law to foster outstanding interdisciplinary research.

Artificial Intelligence and Law
Are you excited about the intersection of artificial intelligence and law? Do you want to conduct research in law or computer science that touches on any aspects of this expanding field? If so, then join us as an inaugural
Independent Research Group Leader at the CZS Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Law at the University of Tübingen
The CZS Institute for Artificial Intelligence at the University of Tübingen is a newly-created interfaculty and interdisciplinary institute that furthers research at the intersection of AI and law. It is directed by Michèle Finck, Ulrike von Luxburg and Stefan Thomas. The CZS Institute for Artificial Intelligence offers several postdoctoral positions for independent research group leaders to be filled as soon as possible.
About the positions
The independent research group leader positions are research-focused career-development positions designed to carry out independent research. They combine the advantages of a postdoc position and an assistant professor: they come with scientific independence, generous funding for PhD students, low administrative burden, and no formal teaching obligation. The positions are funded for 5 years.
The offered positions are especially well suited for promising researchers after a first postdoc or, in exceptional cases, directly after the PhD. A finished doctoral degree is mandatory to start. The position is fixed-term for 5 years, with a salary according to the German public sector agreement (E14 TV-L).
The group and Institute will be embedded in the lively law and AI communities in Tübingen. Tübingen not only hosts excellent computer science and law faculties but also the Cluster of Excellence “Machine Learning – New Perspectives for Science”, the Tübingen AI Center, the first Chair for Law and Artificial Intelligence in Germany and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, among others.
Applications should be sent as a single PDF file and contain the following information: a cover letter, curriculum vitae, copies of diplomas, a list of publications as well as a one-page pitch of your research plans. Applications should be addressed to email@example.com. The application deadline is 15 October 2023.
The University aims to increase the proportion of women in research and therefore urges suitably qualified women scientists to apply. Qualified international researchers or researchers of groups underrepresented in academia are expressly invited to apply. Disabled persons with equal aptitude will be given preferential consideration. The hiring process will be conducted by the central administration of the University of Tübingen.
