Assistant Teaching Professor - AI Ethics and Society

Published 2024-06-11

The Master of Studies in AI Ethics and Society course, delivered in partnership between the University of Cambridge's Institute for Continuing Education (ICE) and the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (CFI), seeks to equip students with the expertise and skills necessary for critically understanding and responding to the complex socio-technical systems underpinning our greatest AI opportunities and challenges.

Drawing on ICE's established track record in delivering high-quality, part-time professional education, and underpinned by CFI's world-leading interdisciplinary research into artificial intelligence and its impact on society, the MSt AI Ethics and Society programme has seen considerable success since its launch. The course's unique focus as the first-of-its kind to consider the ethical and societal impacts of artificial intelligence has rapidly gained it a global reputation, with consistent growth in application numbers. We have a diverse community of high calibre students from a range of professional backgrounds including business, management, policy, technology, design, consultancy, law, communications, and others.

To support the ongoing delivery of this programme and its further development, we wish to appoint a full-time Assistant Teaching Professor. The Assistant Teaching Professor will be responsible for contributing to the learning and teaching programme, as well as assuming leadership responsibility for the course by sharing course leadership duties. Given high student demand for the course, part of this remit will involve working with the course team, CFI, ICE and other stakeholders to increase capacity on the course to enable it to grow enrolments while maintaining learning and teaching excellence and an academically rigorous and research-led curriculum. The appointee will also be expected to play a role in the delivery of ICE's wider continuing education offer.

Informal enquiries are encouraged and can be made to Dr Christopher Huggins, Director of Academic Programmes (). Questions about the application process may be directed to: .
