Two PhD positions at the University of Luxembourg -- the call is open!

ICR (Individual and Collective Reasoning Group, University of Luxembourg) offers two PhD positions starting in 2019 November within the ITN Marie Curie program Law, Science and Technology -- Rights of Internet of Everything.

ICR is an interdisciplinary research team which is interested in the individual reasoning capacity but also in their social interaction potential of intelligent systems (like humans). Its overarching goal is to develop and investigate comprehensive formal models and computational realizations of individual and collective reasoning and rationality.

ICR is anchored in the Computer Science and Communications unit (CSC) of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication (FSTC) at the University of Luxembourg. The group, which is led by Prof. Leon van der Torre, hosted more than 20 researchers in 2018 and is strongly engaged in international cooperation.

Our research areas include normative reasoning in multi-agent contexts, logics for intelligent agents/robots, legal knowledge representation and reasoning, formal and computational argumentation and defeasible reasoning with uncertain or inconsistent information, with applications to AI, Law, and the formal sciences. In 2018, ICR also started to be active in the UL priority of space education and research. The foci of the two PhD projects should be 'Security and privacy of resource-constrained devices' and 'Risk analysis and regulatory compliance of distributed ledger technologies for transaction and management of securities'.
