Present in the fields of software, high-performance computing, Internet of things, image and data, but also simulation in oceanography and biology, it participates at the best level of international scientific achievements and collaborations in both Europe and the rest of the world.
Within the framework of a partnership (you can choose between)
- collaboration within the SPAI Inria Project-Lab
The postdoc project will be conducted in collaboration with the members of the Inria Privatics group and the other partners of the SPAI Inria Project Lab. It will be adapted in agreement with the successful candidate, based on his expertise and motivation.
Transparency is important on the Internet but even more in the context of IoT (Internet of Things), which, by definition, measures and collects a large amount of personal data in a continuous manner. Transparency is a necessary condition to allow users to make informed choices about the disclosure of their personal data.However, transparency is not sufficient in itself. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) emphasises the fact that data subjects should be made aware of the risks related to personal data processing.
The approach followed in the SPAI Inria Project Lab consists in expressing information and consent through privacy policies (for data controllers and data subjects respectively). When they are endowed with a formal semantics, these policies can be analysed to provide information about the privacy risks taken by the user.
The candidate should have a PhD in computer science or a related field. Knowledge and motivation for one of the following fields would be appreciated: privacy, formal semantics, human computer interaction.
Knowledge of French is not required.
