Dear colleagues,

I would be very grateful if you could help us circulate details of an
important post arising in a new cognate Institute here in Oxford.

Ethics in AI Institute Director

The University of Oxford has launched a major initiative in Ethics in
AI, leading to the establishment of an Institute for Ethics in AI, to be
based in the Stephen A. Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities, under the
aegis of the Faculty of Philosophy. The Institute will build upon the
University's world-class capabilities in the humanities to lead the
study of the ethical implications of artificial intelligence and other
new computing technologies.

Cross-disciplinary collaboration will be fundamental to the success of
this new initiative and from its footing within Philosophy, the
Institute will draw upon the entire educational and research endeavour
of Oxford University - including the Social Sciences, Medical Sciences,
Mathematical, Physical & Life Sciences - to deliver cutting-edge
scholarship. It will also develop significant opportunities for
collaboration with other distinguished research universities, and public
and private sector institutions around the world.

The University now seeks a Director for the Institute to provide
intellectual vision and to give strategic leadership to the Institute,
as it establishes its research programmes and related activities. The
post will be open to academics with an international reputation and
wide-ranging research and leadership profile within Ethics in AI. A
competitive salary will be offered to the successful applicant.

Informal enquiries can be made, by email, to Professor Chris Timpson,
christopher.timpson@philosophy.ox.ac.uk or Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt,
