With a background in Cognitive Science and Philosophy, Professor Nagel develops approaches to individual and societal challenges in a technological culture, with a focus on the ethical, anthropological, and social consequences of scientific and technological progress. The interdisciplinary research group on Applied Ethics explores how new human-technology-relations – as for example enabled by research in the fields of neuroscience, cognitive science, AI, or data science - influence human self-understanding, and the understanding of values. Recent projects investigate questions of autonomy, responsibility, and trust. The group combines research in applied ethics with philosophy of mind and philosophy and ethics of technology and involves studies on the public understanding of sciences and technological advances. The current position is situated in the Cluster of Excellence “Internet of Production” funded by the German Research Foundation. In this multidisciplinary research project at the core of research and innovation in industry 4.0 the position should contribute to the ethical reflection of the project with a focus on human-machine interaction and responsibilities in the Internet of Production.
