Oxford Brookes has established an Institute for Ethical Artificial Intelligence in response to the significant ethical and societal challenges that AI raises.

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. 

We are seeking a leader to help us deliver the AI and data analysis consultancy to companies, government and society working in professional services. 

You will have wide range of experience of developing IT experience ideally for cloud delivered services and ideally with experience in or good exposure to an AI area notably Natural Language Processing.

Depending on your skill sets, you will lead projects to develop and deliver new products and services to help legal firms, Human Resources departments and other professional services, understand how AI/ data drives decisions.

The products and services will:

  • analyse customer data to understand risk;
  • validate how an AI/ data tool impacts their company and customer 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. 

The successful applicant will be appointed to the post of Reader with the opportunity to progress to a professorship.

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 twenty, and within 30 miles, over forty internationally leading research institutes. The institute interacts with many of these.
