Job Description
Work done will be at the direction of the PI, and where relevant, the Industry Director and Centre Director.As the Programme is interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary by nature, you will be expected to convey yourdomain expertise and edify others (and vice versa) in as productive, constructive, and collaborative a manneras possible.
You may be asked to participate in the development of use cases and delivery of proof-of-concept prototypesfor government and industry partners in the areas of computable contracts and 'rules as code'. Experience inrequirements analysis and agile, iterative methodologies will be useful at this stage.The work of the team will be largely determined by these use cases and customers. We will work with multipleuse cases so that we can abstract across them and develop generalized, reusable infrastructure. We will workwith specific customers so we can build useful applications on top of that infrastructure.You will contribute to the design and development of open-source software written to serve those use cases.You will work as part of a team of research engineers, developers, and domain expertise and you will beexpected to actively participate in team meetings and text-based communications. You will be expected to beactive members of the applied research community, by validating and contributing to advances incomputational law.
You may be asked to conduct use-inspired research at the direction of the Principal Investigator. This includes
  • reading academic papers, standards publications, and related material such as blog posts andpresentations
  • coming up to speed in fields which may be new to you, such as computational linguistics, mathematicallogic, programming language design, formal verification, and model-based architecture
  • reading (and updating/commenting, relevant) existing software documentation
  • creating presentations, video recordings, walkthroughs, etc. to document and explain research work done
  • writing (and presenting, if so decided by the PI) academic papers and materials for publication and
  • documenting in a sufficiently-detailed manner so as to share what you've learned.

You will be expected to participate in software development this includes
  • learning how to use third party tools, including editors, IDEs, databases, business process modelingsoftware, programming languages, and libraries
  • evaluating competing software systems for suitability
  • building infrastructure to enable application development
  • managing yourself, and managing fellow team members
  • engaging in product, project, and program management as needed
  • reading books and consuming such other media forms about software development
  • writing documentation such as user/developer-facing manuals, tutorials
  • delivering community support to users and customers
  • preparing presentations to represent the project before external audiences and
  • writing actual user-facing applications throughout the 'full stack',in each case, documenting, reporting, and/or presenting the same in clearly and efficiently, both internally andexternally.

Qualifications
Researchers under the Programme should possess both mastery of their academic speciality, anddemonstrated practical experience producing and supporting high-quality open-source code throughcommunity engagement across multiple media. Candidates must have Bachelor's, Master's, Ph.D., oralternative qualifications in computer science, software engineering, (symbolic) artificial intelligence,computational linguistics, or formal methods. Fluency in multiple natural languages, and any experience with law, are a plus.
