Job description

Location:Notre Dame, IN

Description:The Notre Dame – IBM Technology Ethics Lab invites applications for an open-rank teaching professor position for fall 2022 to lead its “Auditing AI Initiative.” This position is not eligible for tenure.

The initiative will result in 1) the development and instruction of an undergraduate course regarding how to conduct an ethics audit of artificial intelligence, 2) the development of teaching materials including teaching cases and libraries for general use, and 3) the creation and delivery of video tutorials, toolkits, and best practices for public and practitioner use based on that course.

While the details of the course and its related materials will be driven by the incumbent’s expertise, the Lab’s expectation is that audit materials will be broadly applicable and/or segmented for use in various sectors (e.g., healthcare, finance, government) and legible to a general audience.

The starting salary will be market competitive. The Lab will provide salary and benefits, a $50K course development grant, and a $70K budget for the production of video modules related to the course and available for publication by the Lab. Course development will take place in fall 2022, with the launch of the course and public materials to occur in spring or fall 2023.

Although the position is open to candidates from any field, the ideal candidate will possess doctoral-level expertise in artificial intelligence (data analytics, CS, statistics, etc.), with an emphasis on developing ethical AI systems.

The candidate will be a skilled instructor with demonstrated interest in using various media to communicate persuasively to a general audience. They will also exhibit experience translating their knowledge for undergraduate students and practitioners from a wide variety of industries. They must display strong organizational skills and the ability to deliver projects on time and on budget while exhibiting a passion for using innovative methods to advance the ethical development and use of AI.
