Subject: Fwd: [Datalab] PhD position in the area of “Digital Risk Awareness” at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences
The Institute of Business Information Technology at the Zurich University of
Applied Sciences has an open PhD position in the area of “Digital Risk
Awareness” (Psychology, Computer Science, HCI) for a period of four years.
At the Institute of Business Information Technology at ZHAW, the student will
mainly work on research project funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation
(SNSF) and have limited teaching responsibilities. The project focuses on
developing and evaluating interventions in the areas of data privacy,
information security, and artificial intelligence to increase users' awareness
of risks (e.g., tracking, phishing, biases). The relationships between factors
such as risk level, salience, and habituation will be investigated, and
appropriate intervention techniques will be identified (e.g., literacy,
incentives, design of software). Quantitative and qualitative methods will be
used in the project (e.g., online experiments). The PhD project is conducted
jointly with the Digital Society Initiative at the University of Zurich (Prof.
Dr. Karsten Donnay).
