The Trinity College Centre for Digital Humanities is recruiting a 2-year post-doctoral fellow with expertise in computational literary studies to join its growing and diverse team. The purpose of this post is to support the development of the LI4AI project, through the delivery of collaborative research in the field of computational literary studies (70%), and teaching backfill for the project PI (30%).
LI4AI is a proposal-stage research project that will use literary evidence to develop an evidence-based model upon which key competencies related to positive liberty – agency, autonomy, competency, transgression, creativity, trust and empathy – can be specified and made actionable within a software environment. As such, it will apply an urgently needed applied humanities approach to the challenge of AI development and regulation in light of the necessary pivot toward humane technology development and deployment.
LI4AI is led by Trinity College Dublin’s Professor Jennifer Edmond, Co-Director of the Trinity Centre for Digital Humanities. The appointee will be based in the Trinity Long Room Hub Arts and Humanities Research Institute and will work closely with Professor Edmond and the DH@TCD Team, also based in the Trinity Long Room Hub.
