Priority will be given to candidates who can demonstrate successful collaboration and interdisciplinary thinking. We are open to candidates who can engage in any of the following areas of research: the ethical and ontological implications of artificial intelligence; the implications of artificial intelligence and Big Data for justice, privacy, and issues of inclusion, bias, and marginalization; the impact of digital technology on democratic values and discourses; transhumanism as a technological, normative, and political perspective; what digital technology and human-computer interactions mean for human identity and for individual rights and liberty; how digital technology centralizes or disperses political power; or how digital technology impacts our relationship with the natural world and our conception of environmental responsibility. Candidates are also expected to add pedagogically-appropriate digital technologies and applications in the classroom.

We seek candidates committed to fostering an inclusive, diverse community. Candidates who are ABD will be considered, although candidates with a Ph.D. are preferred. The teaching load for this position is four courses during the first year and five courses thereafter.
