The Department of Digital Humanities wishes to appoint a Lecturer (Education and Research) in Ethics, AI and Society.
We are seeking a passionate researcher and educator with an excellent track record in the field of Ethical AI, and/or demonstrable potential to work towards such a record. The successful candidate will have a sound technical knowledge of AI, and the ethics of its application in one of more of the Department’s areas of research. These include, non-exhaustively, AI for good, the role of AI in surveillance, and the combatting of bias and discrimination on (and by) AI platforms. This is a major opportunity for a suitably qualified candidate to contribute to our emerging teaching and research profile in this critical area through their research and publications and through grant capture. The postholder will be required to contribute original and innovative teaching at postgraduate and undergraduate levels, and to undertake supervision of Masters and PhD students in the field. They will also contribute to the development and delivery of our new parallel online offerings.
Candidates will contribute to the life and reputation of the Department, the Faculty, and the College through taking on an appropriate administrative role, contributing to internal networks and collaborations, taking part in external national and international activities, and undertaking industry and public engagement where appropriate.
