The Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien (IWM) is doing research on knowledge acquisition, knowledge exchange, and cooperation with digital media. The institute is a member of the Leibniz Associations and is committed to international standards of excellent science.

For research projects that will start on July 1, 2020 (duration of 3 years), we are currently seeking for *seven highly committed*

in conjunction with the research network “Human-Agent Interaction” Within seven projects coming from a social science perspective we investigate how interacting with intelligent, language-based software agents impacts human performance and human acceptance of agents.

Writing your dissertation on a self-generated research question during the project running time is desired and will be explicitly supported. The dissertation projects will be mentored at IWM, but are closely cooperating with external partner institutions from the field of data science.
