Among other reasons, HAI was established to support innovative AI research that bridges disciplines or fields. For this reason, we aim to appoint and support promising researchers working at intersections often overlooked by traditional academic departments, in addition to outstanding researchers pursuing core disciplinary topics.
In February, we announced that HAI was recruiting its inaugural cohort of HAI Fellows. HAI Fellows are Assistant Professors (Research) who will be affiliated with both HAI and a traditional department (e.g., Computer Science or Psychology). This incoming class of faculty will contribute to HAI’s mission by conducting and publishing research, teaching undergraduate and/or graduate classes, mentoring students, and participating in the rich intellectual life on campus.
We are seeking applicants from any area of research related to artificial intelligence, from social impact to theoretical foundations. We are particularly interested in applicants doing research at the boundaries of artificial intelligence with other disciplines, including the humanities, business, education, law, medicine, and physical and social sciences.
Becoming a HAI Fellow will provide an extraordinary springboard to launch a young researcher’s career, including generous research support, access to students, and a low teaching load.
The deadline for applications is April 15. Please consider joining us, or helping us spread the word to a strong and diverse group of candidates.
(Note: The application period for the 2019-2020 academic year has passed. Applications for the 2020-2021 academic year will open in the fall.)
