Job title: Assistant/Associate Professor in Artificial Intelligence and Human Systems (COM_02 & 03)

Company: Durham University

Job description: The Department of Computer Science at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented individual to the role of Associate or Assistant Professor. This is a permanent position. We welcome applications from those with research and teaching interests in the broad field of Artificial Intelligence and Human Systems. Our work in this area covers a broad spectrum of human-centred AI research that aims to address people’s needs and preferences with AI-infused systems.

There are five major research themes in this area: Digital Health (Health Informatics), Digital Humanities, Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Software Engineering (SE), and Technology-enhanced Learning (TEL). All themes share the core goal to promote AI for social good by working on real-world problems and having tangible impact on people’s lives. Each theme highlights a specific scope and methodologies. In Digital Health, we pursue research on applying AI to improve physical and mental health. Digital Humanities involves cultural studies of technology such as musicology with machine learning and text analysis of ancient history and modern social media. HCI and SE apply established and emerging approaches (e.g., use-centred design, model-driven engineering) to different projects involving, for example, conversational agents, mixed reality, self-adaptive and autonomous systems. TEL aims to integrate emerging technologies and data science with pedagogical theories to address educational challenges. In addition, through our EquiAI network we explore, with external experts, ideas and methods to ensure equality, diversity and inclusion in the design and use of AI systems and services.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to strengthen our work in AI in Health, Education, and Culture, or extend the scope of our AI work to other significant areas such as Sustainability, Safety, and Space. They will have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues working in AI and other areas of Computer Science, and with academics across the university on applications of AI.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to make a major contribution to the development of internationally excellent research and teaching while allowing you unrivalled opportunities to progress and embed your career

in an exciting and progressive institution. For more information, please visit our Department pages at
