For the SociAl BIas Observatory (SABIO) project, the KNAW Humanities Cluster is looking for a motivated researcher working on the intersection of language technology, semantic web and cultural heritage. The SABIO project is funded by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network and is aimed at investigating bias in the digital collections of the members of the network. In this project, we investigate how collection managers and curators create and add metadata to collection objects, and how bias in these metadata can be detected using statistical models. We aim to create a knowledge graph on top of existing collection databases that makes prejudices and imbalances in the data explicit such that they can be addressed, as well as taken into account by users of the data. The appointed candidate will be embedded in the Digital Humanities Lab at the KNAW Humanities Cluster, and will collaborate closely with the Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen (organisation responsible for Tropenmuseum, Museum Volkenkunde, Afrikamuseum en Wereldmuseum Rotterdam) and the Information Access group at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica.
