The newly established Collaborative Research Center (CRC 318) „Constructing explainability“ at Bielefeld University and University of Paderborn (Germany) investigates how algorithmic decisions can be interactively explained through dialogical processes in human-AI interaction. The CRC is a DFG-funded research unit and brings together researchers from Computer Science, Linguistics, Cognitive Science, Psychology and Social Sciences in 17 subprojects to work on different aspects of this problem (https://www.uni-paderborn.de/en/trr318/ <https://www.uni-paderborn.de/en/trr318/>).

The project A01 „Adaptive Explanation Generation“ aims to study the linguistic and cognitive mechanisms that enable explainers to adapt their explanations to the explainee, based on partner and domain models they maintain throughout the interaction. The project is carried out in cooperation between Computer/Cognitive Science, Linguistics and Psychology. In this project the Social Cognitive Systems Group at Bielefeld University (Prof. Stefan Kopp) seeks to fill a

*** fully funded, 4-year PhD position ***

The successful candidate will develop a computational cognitive model of rational decision making in pragmatic explanation-giving. This research builds on and brings together methods from A.I. (learning-based, probabilistic decision models), Cognitive Science (models of mental representation) and Linguistics (Rational speech act theory, dialog modeling).

The position will start around August/September 2021, or as soon as possible afterwards as long as the position has not been filled. The duration is for 4 years.
