Position Description:    

Post-Baccalaureate Fellowship in Ethical AI 
This paid Fellowship provides recent college graduates a chance to learn from and contribute to an interdisciplinary research team on Ethical Artificial Intelligence (AI). 

About the Fellowship 
This Post-Baccalaureate Fellow will serve as a full-time in-residence fellow at the Duke Initiative for Science & Society, working under the direction of Dr. Nita Farahany, the Robinson O. Everett Distinguished Professor of Law & Philosophy at Duke University, and Director of the Duke Initiative for Science & Society. The fellow will join a collaborative interdisciplinary research team focused on the ethical design and analysis of AI and computational systems. The fellow will have the opportunity to research and develop manuscripts concerning the ethical, legal, and social implications of AI; assist in the creation of educational modules based on AI ethics case studies; and participate in ethics consultations to advise AI researchers. This will include exploring issues of algorithmic bias, discrimination, transparency, innovation, implications for workforce skilling, and distributional concerns in the development and deployment of artificial intelligence and machine learning. While several technological solutions have (and will be developed) over time, there is still little consistency across society and cultures in addressing the societal implications of AI. 

Qualifications 
This one-year fellowship is designed for pre-doctoral candidates and the successful candidate will begin in residence at Duke University on August 1, 2024. Fellows must have completed their bachelor’s degree within the past three years to be eligible for the fellowship and be authorized to work in the U.S. The successful candidate will have working knowledge of computing (such as AI, mobile networks, computing resources, and network infrastructure) as well as the ethical and policy issues surrounding their implementation.
