A position as doctoral research fellow is available for three (3) years, to undertake research as part of the project "" (VIROS). The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The research fellow will work as part of an interdisciplinary team comprising researchers from the Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law (NRCCL) and other departments at the Law Faculty, UiO, in collaboration with the Robotics and Intelligent Systems (ROBIN) research group at the Department of Informatics, UiO.
The period of appointment may, in special circumstances, be extended to four (4) years, with teaching, supervision duties and research assistance constituting 25 % of the overall workload. A prerequisite for such an extension is that the appointee meets the current teaching needs of the Faculty of Law.
The VIROS project examines legal and other regulatory issues raised by the increasing deployment of robots and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, particularly with respect to addressing the safety, security and privacy concerns such systems raise. It addresses these issues along two main prongs of research: (i) smart robots, privacy, security and safety; and (2) healthcare robots. The first prong analyses the legal and technical challenges in addressing privacy, security and safety concerns that smart robots pose. The second prong examines the legal, technical and ethical issues associated with the growing inter-dependence and interactions of tangible and virtual elements in robots used for healthcare purposes. Further information about the scope and remit of the project may be found here:
The appointee will undertake research on the legal and regulatory aspects of both research prongs. She/he will work in tandem with a postdoctoral research fellow, along with other members of the VIROS team. Although the appointee's research will have a legal focus, much of the research involved will be interdisciplinary, drawing on expertise in socio-economic, technological, cultural and political processes, along with law. Moreover, the research will focus not just on legally binding codes ("hard law") but also a range of "soft law" initiatives (e.g., recommendations, guidelines, memoranda of understandings, technical standards and industry/branch codes of practice). It will also take account of regulatory policy in a variety of jurisdictions.
