        From: Powell,A 
        Subject: Postdoc job: Data and AI Ethics

I'm beginning a new project intended to bring a humanities-led,
interdisciplinary perspective to studies of AI and data ethics. This
project is part of a collaboration between The Ada Lovelace Institute -
https://www.adalovelaceinstitute.org/ - (Ada) and the UK Arts &
Humanities Research Council.

I'm hiring a postdoc (or experienced, non-PhD track researcher) for an
initial 13-month term (starting April 2020) to work between the LSE
Department of Media and Communication and Ada. This post will help
create this network, by:

• framing a creative, humanities-led perspective on AI and data ethics,
particularly through translation across disciplines and between
research, practice and policy 
• building up a repository of research 
• convening workshops and events 
• mapping and managing relationships between researchers and 
practitioners, and contributing themselves to creative, critical 
and novel research on data and AI ethics.

It will involve writing, convening, commissioning and creating.

Please get in touch if you have questions - and share widely.
