This Postdoc project is part of a major EU H2020 project on trustworthy AI. The offered position is to explore trustworthy AI by designing mechanisms for tuning AI systems to be robust in a decentralized environment and developing an explanatory platform that accounts AI systems based on its quantified quality.

Currently, AI schemes applied in security solutions focus mainly on accuracy and performance (e.g., precision, recall, resource utilization) but lack effective accountability from explainable and transparent perspectives. Existing solutions mainly rely on empirical methods (i.e. on the observation of responses to sampled test data) for evaluating system performance, with limited underlying formal methods or guidelines to support the validity of the system behaviours, especially in terms of legal and ethical obligations. Given such challenge, you will investigate explainability features to quantify the different properties of an AI system, such that it is possible to account its overall execution pipeline. In the context of IoT edge and 5G security and privacy domain, you will contribute to the development of a dedicated platform and a set of metrics to evaluate if the explanations make sense to the end-users or developers of the existing intelligent systems.

The hired Postdoc will conduct the work in the project consortium by coordinating research activities and publishing scientific articles.


The candidate is expected to have PhD degree (or soon to obtain it) in computer science, information science, engineering, or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the PhD degree in engineering. Excellent academic records in analytical, mathematical and programming (Python/Java/C++) are preferred. Good command of spoken and written English is required. Project management and development experience with AI are a plus.

The position is part of H2020 project and entails the following tasks: 1) Scientific development for the project tasks in collaboration with academic and industrial partners; 2) Support and contribute to project management; 3) Contribute to education activities.

As part of H2020 project consortium, you will have the opportunity to conduct practical research in cooperation with world leading industrial companies through the consortium network.
