Employment Type
Application Deadline Open until filled

Title Embedded EthiCS Postdoctoral Fellowship in Philosophy
School Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Department/Area Philosophy, Computer Science, Ethics
Position Description
The Harvard Program for Embedded EthiCS invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship based in the Philosophy Department beginning July 1, 2022, pending program needs. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to spend 50% of their time working with the Embedded EthiCS program and 50% of their time on their own independent research. 
Harvard’s Embedded EthiCS is a collaborative pedagogical program that embeds the teaching of ethics directly into the computer science curriculum by creating and teaching ethics modules for courses in the standard computer science curriculum. For details about this exciting program, please see our website . The postdoctoral fellow will have responsibility for (a) teaching in the program, (b) participating in a Teaching Lab that develops ethics modules, © coaching the Teaching Assistants, and potentially (d) advising an undergraduate senior thesis in this area. The fellow will have a faculty advisor. Postdoctoral fellows in this program are encouraged to participate in the many efforts at Harvard to address the social impact of technology through its ties with Harvard’s Center for Research in Computation and Society; Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics; and Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society. 
We seek applicants who are enthusiastic about working with computer scientists to develop ethics modules for their courses. They need not have computer science experience themselves. They must demonstrate competence to teach ethics, but ethics need not be their area of specialization. Ideally candidates would have significant teaching experience, some mathematical training, experience with cross-disciplinary research or teaching, and enthusiasm about developing ethics pedagogy. 
Applicants must have completed all the requirements for a doctorate in Philosophy or related discipline by June 30, 2022. The term of the fellowship is July 1, 2022-June 30, 2024, pending a successful review at the end of the first year. 
We welcome applications from women and members of minority groups, as well as others who would bring additional dimensions to the university’s research and teaching missions. Salary is extremely competitive.
