KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.
As a postdoctor you will work in a new research field which combines media- and environmental history, critical media theory, environmental humanities and social sciences with the study of Artificial Intelligence and autonomous systems. The research field focuses on AI for environmental purposes and on historical perspectives on environmental media, technology, and science. The aim is to develop an understanding for how local and global environments are created through data collecting and data processing, as well as for questions of access, use and ownership of data and knowledge of the environment. The research field involves also how environmental science that engages Artificial Intelligence and autonomous systems can affect the understanding of environmental change, risks, sustainability, and governance.
In this role you will collaborate with the Formas-funded project “The Mediated Planet: Claiming Data for Environmental SDGs” and with the WASP-HS Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program – Humanities and Society project “Media and Environment: AI and Autonomous Systems in Data-based Environmental Research”.
