Max Planck Insti­tute for Human Deve­lop­ment - Cen­ter for Humans & Machi­nes

The Cen­ter for Humans & Machi­nes con­ducts inter­di­sci­pli­nary sci­ence, to under­stand, anti­ci­pate, and shape major dis­rup­ti­ons from digi­tal media and Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence to the way we think, learn, work, play, coope­rate and gov­ern.

Stu­dent Research Assist­ant | Human-AI Inter­ac­tion – Data Col­lec­tion & Ana­lysis


To com­ple­ment this team, we are look­ing for a motiv­ated Stu­dent Research Assist­ant that helps us to under­stand bet­ter how AI can influ­ence human beha­vior.

Working field:

The Cen­ter for Humans & Machines (CHM) con­ducts inter­dis­cip­lin­ary sci­ence to under­stand, anti­cip­ate, and shape major dis­rup­tions from digital media and Arti­fi­cial Intel­li­gence to the way we think, learn, work, play, cooper­ate and gov­ern. Our goal is to under­stand how machines are shap­ing human soci­ety today and how they may con­tinue to shape it in the future. The Cen­ter is com­prised of an inter­dis­cip­lin­ary, inter­na­tional, and diverse group of schol­ars and a sci­ence sup­port team. To com­ple­ment this team, we are look­ing for a motiv­ated Stu­dent Research Assist­ant.


Main Tasks
  • Assist­ing in a pro­ject focused on ana­lyz­ing con­tent from one of the most pop­u­lar online video-focused social net­work­ing ser­vices.
  • Online data col­lec­tion from web­sites using web scrap­ing/crawl­ing meth­ods.
  • Devel­op­ing, doc­u­ment­ing, and main­tain­ing Python code for data col­lec­tion and ana­lysis.
  • Assist­ing research­ers in dif­fer­ent sci­entific themes at the CHM.

  • A bach­elor's degree from a uni­versity or another insti­tu­tion of higher edu­ca­tion or an equi­val­ent degree, prefer­ably in com­puter sci­ence, data sci­ence, math­em­at­ics, phys­ics or stat­ist­ics. Enrolled in a Mas­ter's pro­gram at a Ger­man uni­versity in the fields of social sci­ence, nat­ural sci­ences, com­puter sci­ence, or related.
  • High pro­fi­ciency in Python with a spe­cial focus on Data Ana­lysis (pan­das, sklearn, mat­plot­lib) and its applic­a­tion to web-based ser­vices (sel­en­ium, beau­ti­ful­soup, flask, twi­lio).
  • Famili­ar­ity with Git, and the abil­ity to read and adjust exist­ing Python pro­jects for a given pur­pose.
  • A strong interest in work­ing in a sci­entific envir­on­ment. Inde­pend­ent work­ing style, with high self-motiv­a­tion and self-organ­iz­a­tion.
  • Pro­fi­ciency in writ­ten and spoken Eng­lish and will­ing­ness to work in an inter­na­tional and inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team.

What we offer:

  • An inter­est­ing and var­ied pos­i­tion at an inter­na­tional research insti­tute at the fore­front of AI and Human inter­ac­tions research.
  • Insights into the research of the inter­na­tion­ally renowned Cen­ter for Humans and Machines. Involve­ment in sci­entific work related to arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence and eth­ics, and human-machine inter­ac­tion.
  • Room to con­trib­ute and real­ize your ideas. Res­ults from this pro­ject can be a part of your Mas­ter's thesis.
  • Pos­sib­il­ity to work remotely (e.g., from home office)
  • A mod­ern, fam­ily-friendly work­place with a great work-life bal­ance cul­ture.
  • The pos­i­tion is lim­ited to one year with the pos­sib­il­ity of exten­sion.
  • Salary: 13,95€ / hour
