FU Ber­lin - Mathe­ma­tik und Infor­ma­tik, Insti­tut für Infor­ma­tik, Human-Cen­te­red Com­pu­tin (HCC) Rese­arch Group

The rese­arch group Human-Cen­te­red Com­pu­ting (HCC) is an inter­di­sci­pli­nary team in the field of Col­la­bo­ra­tive Com­pu­ting and Human Com­pu­ter Inter­ac­tion. The focus is to advance rese­arch and design of soci­ally respon­si­ble tech­no­lo­gies by ana­ly­zing the intert­wi­ning of data, algo­rithms and social con­text to enable sustainable human-machine col­la­bo­ra­tion. Cur­rent rese­arch focu­ses of the rese­arch group are in the areas of idea genera­tion, data sci­ence and visua­li­za­tion. Our theory-dri­ven rese­arch inclu­des both an empi­ri­cal and an engi­nee­ring dimen­sion.

Stu­dent Assi­stant (f/d/m) 40h/month - Imple­men­ta­tion for pri­vacy-aware dona­tion of mobi­lity data


Iden­ti­fier: HCC2021-SHK-16
App­li­ca­tion dead­line: Octo­ber 25th, 2021

Working field:

We are loo­king for a stu­dent assi­stant in out rese­arch group with a nego­tia­ble mon­thly working time of 40 hours.

In this pro­ject we are inves­ti­ga­ting the use of move­ment data. On one hand, move­ment data is essen­tial to iden­tify areas of necessary impro­ve­ments of traf­fic infra­st­ruc­ture and public trans­port. On the other hand, many move­ments, troughout your day may be sen­si­tive and we don't want our data publi­cally lea­ked. To com­pro­mise bet­ween those two legi­ti­mate inten­ti­ons, we inves­ti­gate the methods to use this kind of data wit­hout com­pro­mi­sing the pri­vacy of the data sub­jects. Our focus is on pre­sen­ting the garan­tiees and risks asso­cia­ted with these novel methods in a com­pre­hen­si­ble man­nor, such that users can take an infor­med decision, whe­ther to agree for their data to be used.

Your area of respon­si­bi­lity will be the sup­port in the con­cep­tion, crea­tion and eva­lua­tion of inter­ac­tive case stu­dies con­cer­ning the infor­med sharing of loca­tion and move­ment data.

Your activity in par­ti­cu­lar will include assi­s­tance with the fol­lo­wing tasks:

  • rese­arch tasks (lite­ra­ture rese­arch, rese­arch of state-of-the-art approa­ches)
  • imple­men­ta­tion of the inter­faces in the form of inter­ac­tive soft­ware pro­to­ty­pes
  • imple­men­ta­tion of (online) stu­dies
  • eva­lua­tion of study results


  • Regis­te­red stu­dent in the field of com­pu­ter sci­ence, media com­pu­ter sci­ence, data sci­ence, mathe­ma­tics or simi­lar
  • Basic know­ledge in web deve­lop­ment (HTML, CSS, Java­script)
  • Good Ger­man and Eng­lish lan­guage skills (level B2)
  • Inde­pen­dent and reli­able way of working and a pro­noun­ced wil­ling­ness to learn

What we offer:

As a stu­dent in our rese­arch group you will have the oppor­tu­nity to shape chal­len­ging, yet prac­ti­cal imple­men­ta­tion tasks in the pri­vacy con­text. Tog­e­ther with an addi­tio­nal stu­dent you will be sup­por­ting the pro­ject Fre­e­Move, clo­sely working tog­e­ther with our team at the rese­arch group HCC.
