Organisation: Stiftung Neue Verantwortung (SNV)
Stiftung Neue Verantwortung is inviting applications for a Project Lead to spearhead and develop a new cross-cutting and multi-year project focused on analyzing the AI labor market in Germany and Europe.
The main aim of this project is to produce data on the strengths and weaknesses of the European AI ecosystem, particularly when it comes to its talent flows, and the forming and retaining of a specialized workforce in the field of AI.
This is an exciting opportunity for ambitious individuals interested in developing much-needed research for policymaking and the public. You will build on previous research recently carried out by SNV on the current state of AI talent flows in Germany and broaden the scope to a wider European level through the development of quantitative analyses, and the conducting of surveys with key stakeholders in the tech and public policy sectors.
- Lead and coordinate an interdisciplinary research project and team conducting quantitative data analysis and qualitative field research on the AI labour market in Germany and Europe.
- Develop research plans and oversee the implementation of different project modules including data collection, quantitative modelling, interviews, surveys, etc.
- Contribute your own ideas to the project and suggest a range of methods that could help to successfully complete the project.
- Publish and communicate research findings to relevant stakeholders
- Build partnerships and collaborate with relevant experts in academia, industry, government,, and civil society.
- Designing and conducting expert workshops.
- Publishing policy papers.
- Strong quantitative research skills are a requirement, and other methodological skills are a plus.
- Excellent project management and organizational skills.
- Knowledge of the European AI ecosystem and current debates in technology policy.
- Solution-oriented, determined, flexible, and skilled in creative problem-solving.
- Ability to communicate complex topics in an accessible manner to non-expert audiences.
- Fluency in English is required. Knowledge of German will be considered a plus, and so will be the knowledge of other European languages. But other aspects in the application can make up for not having enough dexterity in languages other than English.
- Experience in publishing their research will be considered a great asset, particularly if published in specialised academic or media outlets.
- You are based in an EU country. The successful applicant can be a national of any country. But must be based, or willing to relocate, to an EU country.
- Any level of academic qualification is welcome.
