Are you, or someone you know, interested in artificial intelligence, law, ethics, data analysis, digital privacy, or increasing access to culture? The University of Glasgow and the National Library of Scotland are looking for a PhD student to work in these exciting areas to investigate how the National Library, and other organisations, can use artificial intelligence within a legal and ethical framework to identify sensitive information within their digital collections and improve access to them.

The deadline for applications has been extended to Wednesday 29th August at 5pm with interviews taking place in early September for a 1st October start.

If you have experience in some or all of the areas mentioned then this is a fantastic and funded opportunity to develop your skills with support from a wide pool of experts in two of Scotland’s leading organisations.

Where’s the digital preservation angle? We’d hope to use evaluation and appraisal techniques informed by the studentship to help understand the additional costs that may be required preserving long-term access to content that has some form of sensitivity. This may be in the form of additional controls or human intervention before content can be made accessible.
