Department of People and Technology, Roskilde University, invites applications for a fixed term 18-months position as post doc from the 1st of February 2024, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Department of People and Technology is the largest department at RUC, and covers a range of subject areas, broadly focused on human society technology interactions and covering e.g., sustainable transition, social interventions & entrepreneurship, urban planning, digital transformation, data science, computer science, work and health studies etc.

The position is linked to the research groups Sustainable Digitalisation (SDI) and Programming, Logic and Intelligent Systems (PLIS). SDI is working within the research areas of Information Systems (IS), Design Science Research (DSR) and/or Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW) including Big Data and Data Analytics, while PLIS in addition to traditional theoretical computer science also covers research in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.

We are looking for an applicant with a strong research profile related to applied data science, preferably within Green IT and sustainability. The applicant will be involved in the GameForGreen project: A game platform that lets society learn green and sustainable behavior through playing. The vision of the GameForGreen project is to develop an innovative game platform that combines serious games and gamification elements with the tracking of real-world data on for example water and heat consumption, waste sorting, transportation and other green areas. The data will be made available by municipalities participating in the GameForGreen project.

The candidate will work and do research affiliated with work package 3: Create Data Analytics Overview as well as work package 4 and 6 about building and evaluating the platform (only the data-related part). The main work has the following aims and objectives:

  • Identify data sources and repositories for consumers, households as well as employees.
  • Explore and analyze available data and data sources.
  • Develop a strategy for how to join and validate game play data with data sources.
  • Develop machine learning models to predict and dynamically change consumer responses based on game play data.
  • Publish state-of-the-art articles related to data science, machine learning and business development within highly regarded Information Systems and Computer Science conferences and journals.

We expect the applicant to participate in, anchor and lead development tasks of work package 3, by engaging both with the 5 project contributors (municipalities and companies) as well as the developers of the game platform.
