This covers the broad consequences of innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI), and associated new or disruptive technologies; in ethics and social biases around AI, machine learning and big data; in social narratives around AI; and in AI and public policy. Applicants in such areas may be considered jointly by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences division and the Social Sciences division, and, if appropriate, other schools and centres at Ahmedabad University. The School has five divisions: Biological and Life Sciences, Humanities and Languages, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, Performing and Visual Arts, and Social Sciences, all of which work in a collaborative and interdisciplinary way. This is an exciting opportunity to join a fast-growing school in India in a dynamic new private university with a public ethos.
The persons in those positions are expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate level in the Undergraduate and Graduate Programmes at Ahmedabad University and also to develop interdisciplinary courses. Appointees will be expected to engage in high-level research, to publish in their specialist field, to teach, guide and examine undergraduates, to seek opportunities to win external funding for their research, and to supervise and examine both Masters and Doctoral work.
Required and Preferred Qualifications:
Applicants must already have a doctorate or a postdoctoral fellowship from institutions with international recognition. They must have an existing record of excellence and potential, commensurate with their appointment level and stage of career. They will be expected to provide evidence of excellence as demonstrated by publications in leading academic journals or a research project at an international level, an emerging record of scholarly accomplishments, presentations at significant conferences and examples of original forms of knowledge production.
The University provides a generous salary package and other benefits including a seed grant for faculty research projects and an annual Faculty Development Allowance.
