PhD position summary/title: PhD Position for the Project: “Relationship Formation with Artificial Partners”

The Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) is looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate for the project: Understanding Relationship Formation with Artificial Partners: Examination of Tools, Users and Outcomes. Due to rapid advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning, we have been witnessing remarkable developments in the field of human-machine communication. From social robots to virtual agents, AI-driven technologies are increasingly being used for human interactions. Among these, a new category of digital tools are artificial partner applications. Distinct from other AI tools that are used for assistance or as intermediaries between humans, artificial partner applications represent a novel genre of AI powered tools that function as communication partners that aim to simulate companionship and form emotional connections with users. This project, supervised by Dr. Hande Sungur (PI), Prof. Dr. Jochen Peter, and Dr. Jeroen Lemmens, will examine relationship formation with artificial partners by: (1) developing a comprehensive typology of artificial partner applications, (2) identifying demographic, social, and technological predictors of artificial partner use, (3) examining associations between predictors and outcomes of use, and (4) examining causal underlying processes that influence relationship formation. Through these four goals, the present research aims to enhance our understanding, specifically of artificial partners, and more broadly human-machine communication, while contributing to the discourse on AI’s evolving role in human society and communication.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position “Other Side of Algorithmic Persuasion”

We are looking for a PhD candidate to join a new research project led by Dr. Joanna Strycharz, Dr. Hilde Voorveld, and Dr. Corine Meppelink: “Other side of algorithmic persuasion: undesired persuasive effects beyond privacy and how consumers can cope with them”. The project is embedded in the Amsterdam School of Communication Research at the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, University of Amsterdam. This 4-year PhD project aims to investigate the unintended and potentially harmful impact of algorithmic persuasion on individuals and the society. Companies collect and algorithmically process large amounts of digital traces of individuals with the aim of increasing persuasiveness of online content (algorithmic persuasion). Sometimes, these personalization practices are beneficial to consumers, because they are used to serve relevant content. For example, when a consumer looks for airline tickets and then sees advertisements for airline tickets elsewhere online, this can be experienced as useful. However, such persuasion attempts can also be experienced as harmful as they can be used to persuade individuals into behaviors that are not necessarily in their own interest and change how they make decisions in the online environment. For example, when a situational factor such as the battery level of consumer’s cell phone impacts the services that they are offered online (i.e., being offered more expensive taxi rides when the battery level is low). Or when consumers are targeted due to their psychological state (e.g., social networking sites allegedly targeting young users in state of psychological vulnerability, by inferring when they feel stressed). In this project, the PhD student will try to unravel how people experience such potential harms, how they try to cope with them, and based on these insights, design intervention strategies that will increase individual knowledge related to harms and hence foster coping with algorithmic persuasion.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Code-Based Cryptography

Are you fascinated by the theoretical underpinnings of security that allow for protecting privacy in an ever more interconnected world? Are you willing to take on the challenge of upgrading cryptography to deal with the threat posed by quantum computation? Do you enjoy working in a team of young and motivated researchers? We are seeking a PhD student to carry out cutting-edge research in theoretical computer science, with an expected focus on code-based cryptography. 

 

Cryptography’s task is to provide tools for maintaining the privacy and integrity of digital data. Unfortunately, almost all currently deployed public-key cryptography is known to be vulnerable if an attacker has access to a quantum computer. Given the near-term deployment of quantum computing technologies, the time to deploy post-quantum secure cryptography is now. Code-based cryptography not only offers plausible security against quantum attacks; it also leads to practically efficient implementations of powerful cryptography such as secure multiparty computation and (non-)interactive proofs. However, our theory of its security is severely wanting. Firstly, unlike its close cousin of lattice-based cryptography, we lack a satisfactory theory of security reductions. Secondly, many recent proposals lack sufficient cryptanalysis. The aim of this PhD project is to fill in these holes and thereby offer a better foundation for the security of code-based cryptography. The PhD candidate will greatly benefit from the active and growing community of theoretical computer science researchers within Amsterdam. Specifically, nearby experts from the CWI cryptology group and QuSoft will offer fertile collaborations on these topics.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position on Human-Aligned Video-AI for Skill Assessment

Video AI holds the promise to explore what is unreachable, monitor what is imperceivable and to protect what is most valuable. New species have become identifiable in our deep oceans, the visually impaired profit from automated speech transcriptions of visual scenery, and elderly caregivers may be supported with an extra pair of eyes, to name just three of the many, many application examples. This is no longer wishful thinking. Broad uptake of video-AI for science, for business, and for wellbeing awaits at the horizon, thanks to a decade of phenomenal progress in machine deep learning. However, the same video-AI is also accountable for self-driving cars crashing into pedestrians, deep fakes that make us believe misinformation, and mass-surveillance systems that monitor our behaviour. The research community’s over-concentration on recognition accuracy has neglected human-alignment for societal acceptance. The HAVA Lab is an intern-disciplinary lab that will study how to make the much-needed digital transformation towards human-aligned video AI. The HAVA Lab will host 7 PhD positions working together with researchers from all 7 faculties of the university, from video AI and its alignment with human cognition, ethics, and law, to its embedding in medical domains, public safety, and business. The lab has 9 supervisors in total spanning all 7 faculties of the university for maximum interdisciplinarity. Depending on the specific topic, the PhD students also have a strong link to the working environment and faculty of their respective supervisors. The HAVA Lab has been given a unique central location at the library, an ideal hub for interdisciplinary collaborations. The PI of the lab is prof. dr. Cees Snoek.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Positions for the Project ‘Connected through Entertainment’

The Amsterdam School of Communication Research (ASCoR) is looking for a 4-year PhD candidate for the project Connected Through Entertainment. This project investigates how the joint consumption of entertainment television content via social media (i.e., social TV) can foster public connection. The project is led by Dr. A. Marthe Möller (PI), Prof. Dr. Jessica Piotrowski, and Dr. Annemarie van Oosten. Grounded in literature on entertainment communication, this project investigates how the act of discussing entertainment television content with others online can lead to feelings of public connection. It does so through four goals. First, it aims to develop a typology of public connection as this term has not been clearly defined in the entertainment literature. Second, it aims to create and validate a measure of experienced connection to others. Third, it investigates the relationship between participation in social TV and public connection. Finally, it studies how experiences of public connection are reflected in the online conversations that people have about entertainment content. By achieving these four aims, the project contributes to our theoretical understanding of public connection as a concept, as well as to our knowledge of the relationship between social TV and public connection. In addition, such insights can shed light on the potential positive impact that entertainment content consumption has on individuals and society.

PhD position summary/title: PhD in Accounting

Accounting research deals with a variety of questions in the areas of financial accounting, managerial accounting, auditing, and increasingly, sustainability/ESG accounting. Broadly, accounting research addresses how (accounting) information is created, disseminated and used, and how this information affects the world around us (e.g., capital market participants, employees, other internal and external stakeholders). This PhD position is a full-time position for a period of four years. The first year will consist of PhD-level coursework, after which the candidate will start working on his or her own research agenda under the supervision and with the support of the senior professors within the department. The research projects will be shaped by the candidate’s ideas, interests and capabilities. We especially welcome candidates with a strong interest in the intersection of accounting and sustainability/ESG, and candidates who are interested in primarily conducting quantitative empirical research (archival or experimental). The fourth year of the PhD position typically involves a half- to full-year visit at another internationally renowned school. During your PhD trajectory, you will become an active member of the accounting section and will benefit from and contribute to our broader research agenda. You will be offered other support (e.g., research funding for data collection and conference travel).

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Cell-water Structure and Dynamics

Water in living cells contains a high concentration of biomolecules, that can significantly alter its properties (see https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-017-00858-0). There are even cells (bacterial spores, for instance) in which all chemistry is put to a standstill: these cells can survive for years in a dried-out, chemically ‘frozen’ state, from which they can recover completely and continue living as if nothing happened. The physical and chemical mechanisms underlying this suspended metabolism are still a mystery. In this PhD project, you will help to solve this mystery by using state-of-the-art experimental methods to investigate the structure and dynamics of water and proteins in living cells capable of surviving extreme circumstances, such as drought and thermal shock. Knowledge of how some cells manage to survive complete desiccation for such long periods of time can help to develop strategies for the dry, room-temperature storage of blood and vaccines (important for third-world countries), but potentially even for the dry storage of entire organisms. The project will be carried out at the University of Amsterdam, in cooperation with the Max-Planck Institute in Mainz.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Position in Green-and-Explainable Machine Learning

There is growing concern that black-box Machine Learning is not always suitable as its explainability is limited and its energy consumption might be prohibitively expensive. Both issues are interrelated, as enhancing the explainability of ML (ensuring that decisions made by ML are sufficiently motivated to humans by that same ML) may require more complex ML models or additional steps – such as local approximations with an interpretable model or simulations of “what if” scenarios, thus leading to increased energy consumption. Conversely, recent comprehensive research into explainable-by-design deep learning systems indicates that feed-forward neural architectures are intrinsically suitable for explainability, at the cost of worsened classification metrics (accuracy). Thus, it is important to understand to what extent explainable ML, accurate ML, and reducing the energy consumption of ML could be simultaneously optimised. This way, we can establish best practices to guide ML developers in the implementation of ML models and users in the selection of ML tools that are accurate, explainable, and energy-efficient at the same time.

PhD position summary/title: PhD position: Social Influences on Digital Media’s Effect on Mental Health

In this project, you will address the question whether digital media’s “bad image” changes the effects of digital media use on the individual. Users are often exposed to messages (e.g., through news articles or their family members) that suggest that digital media use is bad for them. Such messages can be understood as social influence mechanisms that can impact how users see their own media use (e.g., as good or bad) and might subsequently change media effects. The general aim of this PhD project is to investigate how such social influence mechanisms shape the effects of social and mobile media use on mental health. Thereby, the PhD project seeks to contribute to the ongoing discussion about the effects of social and mobile media use on mental health, especially by providing guidance about what consequences (overly) negative societal views on social and mobile media could have. Would you like to explore these questions together with our supervision team? Then this PhD position might be for you. The project is part of the Youth and Media Entertainment Programme Group of the Department of Communication Science. In our programme group, we explore the entertaining role of communication in everyday life studying traditional and new forms of entertainment media. Building on a media psychological orientation, the programme group focuses in particular on children and adolescents. The PhD project will be supervised by Dr. Susanne Baumgartner, Dr. Lara Wolfers, and Dr. Ine Beyens.

PhD position summary/title: PhD candidate Effect of Agriculture on the Plant Microbiome

In the NWO-KIC project MicroHealth, we will study the role of the microbiome in the relationship between soil, agricultural products and health of humans. This relationship has enormous societal implications because agriculture has a large impact on our environment and food is the number one driver of human health.  In MicroHealth, with a team of plant and human biologists, sociologists and data analysts, we will establish the connection between the impact of agriculture on the soil and plant quality/microbiome and the consequences for the health of humans, as well as the social and political context of this connection.  We will achieve this by (1) studying the impact of farming strategies on the soil and crop microbiome and nutritional composition; (2) through advanced data analysis this will be coupled to human health through an intervention study in the HELIUS cohort tracing microbiome changes and its relation to health status; (3) this is embedded in research on opportunities and conflicts in policies and stakeholder-networks and microbiome-related health practises at the household level.
