Oxford Brookes is establishing an Institute for Ethical AI in response to the need to control the future of AI into societal norms. Our ambition is to create a world leading institute that will help professional service (e.g. law, accountancy, social care, planning, architects) companies adopt new AI and data analysis techniques. Our key focus is the interface between AI / Data Analysis and Society.
This is a full time, two year fixed term appointment with ambitions to extend beyond this term.
We are seeking a person with some experience in social science research - perhaps in a consultancy - to help us deliver this social research to companies, government and society. Depending on their skill sets, the recruits will work on projects to help legal firms, Human Resources departments and other professional services, understand how to use AI /data analysis.
The products and services will:
- analyse customer data to understand risk
- validate how an AI/ data tool impacts their company and customers to ensure this impact is positive
- help companies improve their own productivity and develop new products
- write state of the art reviews
- validate and evaluate AI performance and evaluate the social/ economic value of different AI and other machine learning products, for example.
Our ambition is to help our new recruits develop their skills and expertise so they can be one of the top people in their desired professions. We want them to develop exciting and fulfilling careers and we will do all we can to help them achieve their own goals.
The Ethical AI Institute is located in a vibrant university which is part of one of the World's leading research precincts. Within two miles of us, there are 20 and within 30 miles, over forty internationally leading research institutes. The institute interacts with many of these. The new recruits will be able to develop an enviable network of contacts who are or will become the leaders of their profession, if they desire.
Whilst this position is initially a fixed-term appointment for 24 months, our ambition is to earn sufficient income to extend the position long term. This is largely in your hands.
You will also enjoy the benefits of working at Oxford Brookes University with up to 38 days holiday, rising to 41 days holiday (this includes 13 Bank Holidays and Concessionary Days), a generous Local Government pension scheme (14.7% Employer contribution rate), cycle to work scheme and access to a variety of university facilities (NHS Dentist, Brookes Nursery, Gym and sports facilities).
