Responsibilities/Job Description

Mainly research but work duties include teaching for up to a maximum of 20 percent of working hours and external engagement.

The post-doctoral researcher is expected to conduct independent research in the field of quantum law, broadly construed as the field of study concerning the relationship between law and quantum technology. In light of the on-going research activities of the Quantum Law Team, project proposals concerning the implications of the emergence of quantum computing technology on intellectual property law are of particular interest to the research group.

The researchers and teachers at the Faculty are expected to contribute to a dynamic research environment as well as to other Faculty activities. Work is to be carried out primarily in the workplace provided by the Faculty.

Teaching staff employed as a post doctoral researchers are offered the opportunity to undertake further training in teaching and learning in higher education of at least three weeks within the scope of their employment.

About the Quantum Law Project

The Quantum Law Project is the first research project dedicated specifically to the study of the legal implications of quantum computing. The project is funded by and forms part of the Wallenberg Foundations’ ‘Initiative for Humanistic and Social Scientific Research in AI and Autonomous Systems’ (WASP-HS). In the course of this 10-year initiative, the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation and the Marcus and Amalia Wallenberg Foundation will invest 660 million SEK into research projects that study the ethical, economic, labour market, social and legal aspects of the ongoing technological transformation of society.

Substantively, the Quantum Law Project aims to make a significant contribution to the understanding of the legal implications of the emergence of quantum computing with respect to autonomous systems and AI. While the Quantum Law Project aims to carry out a comprehensive appraisal of the legal implications of quantum computing on autonomous systems and AI, the project focusses on three questions in particular: How does quantum computing affect the practice of law? How does quantum computing affect the legal process? How does quantum computing affect metaphysical assumptions about law? The activities of the Quantum Law Project are coordinated by Associate Professor Valentin Jeutner.
