About the job
Among other things, Stelar is a centre of competence for improving the understanding of how the protection of rights and personal data can be optimised in digital transformation and artificial intelligence applications.
In our projects we work in multi-disciplinary teams in law, ethics and computer science, with a network of professionals from academia, research, industry and governments, on an international arena in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Greece, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Ireland, the Netherlands, the UK, Israel, etc.
Successful candidates will be working with the research team at Stelar on a variety of projects. You will experience leading European research and technology development in your area of interest, which will also add to your track record as a top-level expert in the field. A small organisation offers you autonomy, experience in more senior roles than you would have in a large company, getting noticed by decision makers, less monotonous work, finding abilities, strengths or interests you never knew you had, more direct contacts to important expert groups and major players in Europe.
We offer super work-life balance. Not only may you work remotely but you also decide when you work during the week. And because it is a position with 14 hours a week, you are even more flexible. Content-wise you may start leading work as soon as you feel ready. You will work with qualified, experienced and innovative people in these sunrise industries of digital health and cybersecurity, in projects like SHiELD , PANACEA  and Pharaon .
Salary depends on relevant work experience, e.g., if you have seven years eight months of it, for this position you will receive 2 862 euros gross monthly salary and we will pay approx. 1 575 euros for your pension and unemployment benefits and health and care insurance.
We limit the first contract to two years. During that period, we are open to consider career opportunities in terms of responsibility and fulltime, based on how consistently and well you collaborated with project partners throughout those two years.
The position will start as soon as possible.
Master or equivalent degree in ICT law, technology/data ethics, security/privacy engineering, health informatics, data science or a related field required
Three years of relevant work experience in research required, experience in industry, regulation or policy is a plus, as are professional certifications in privacy and security and relevant experience as an ethics committee member, data protection officer, information officer, software architect
Make it easy for our manager and researcher to evaluate your application. We expect certified copies of Bachelor and Master degree diplomas and transcripts in English, a complete CV, samples of papers you have written, an English two-page summary of the most important one, reference letters, a research objectives statement (how you intend to support improvement of privacy in digital health), and a relevance letter (how you meet the requried and preferred qualifications)
In your relevance letter please include collaborative projects with your level of responsibility, meetings and groups you chaired, the duration of relevant jobs with the average weekly working hours, and the language of the academic degrees and the relevant jobs.
Kindly note that you will be evaluated based on your research objectives, not (only) on past achievements; in other words your publication record is not the primary criterion. Your sample papers will be mainly used to evaluate how you adhere to the highest standards of research integrity. For the research objectives statement, the scope of the research is the following: Given the collaboration of numerous partners and complex technological systems, devices and datasets, what are the key elements involved in improving privacy protection in the design, selection and implementation of the technology addressed by the collaboration and then presenting conclusions in a clear way to non-experts and repeating the process a second and third time? You may take one of the three projects mentioned above as a basis.
Please send your application with a file size of no more than 15 MB in a common format within two weeks from now by email to ts [at] stelar [dot] de. We will extend the deadline if needed but the process stops when we find the right persons. We wish to start working with the most merited applicants as soon as possible. Please state your earliest possible entry date because we know relocation takes time.
We will do a remote screening and in-depth interview with an assessment for completion within a week, remote presentation of the results and a team fit assessment with other employees.
Germany is a great place to live. Move here if you don't live here yet. We don't care where you come from as long as you are the right specialist with a real interest in this job you may work where we are based, that is, the street leading to Germany's most prestigious building (Elbphilharmonie) but also anywhere else in Germany.
