In the CHANGE project, the University Education Services (Hochschuldidaktik &
Lehrentwicklung), the Data Science Lab, and the Digital Humanities are
collaborating to investigate the successful integration of AI-based dialogue
systems into university teaching. The project has two main areas: First, the
development of higher education didactic concepts, models, and methods to
support integrating digital dialogue systems into higher education teaching.
Second, the development of digital dialog systems for university teaching. The
innovations will be tested in the university's ongoing teaching operations and
further developed using design-based research methods.

The Ph.D. position is part of the second sub-project. We seek a dedicated
researcher with a background in Computational Linguistics or
Digital/Computational Humanities with experience in machine learning.

You will become part of our international and interdisciplinary research group
