The University of Florida Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research (tenure home) invites applications for a nine-month, full-time, tenure-track Assistant Professor position to begin August 16, 2021. We invite applicants in feminist technoscience and related fields who specialize in critical analysis and applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and data science. This includes applicants who focus on how AI and data science can shape and be shaped by gender, race, sexuality and other biases and social inequalities as well as uses of AI and data science to promote ethical accountability and social justice. The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package.

This position is part of a larger hiring initiative in AI and Society that includes multiple departments and colleges at UF. Thus, the successful applicant will have the opportunity to collaborate with scholars working in AI bias, ethics, and equity across the social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, law, computer science and engineering, and other disciplines. We encourage applicants who can utilize resources available at the University of Florida and specifically the new HiPerGator AI NVIDIA GPU SuperPod (https://news.ufl.edu/2020/07/nvidia-partnership/). This search is part of a campus wide effort by the University of Florida to expand the role of AI in higher education and research (https://ai.ufl.edu). The University is home to HiPerGator, one of the most powerful high-performance computers at a US public university (www.rc.ufl.edu/services/hipergator/).

Applicants should have a strong record of scholarship, excellence in teaching and service, and ability to garner extramural funding. Applicants should be trained in and have a research program and teaching experience in feminist, women’s, gender, queer, and/or sexualities studies. The candidate is expected to contribute enthusiastically to the interdisciplinary research, teaching, and service mission of the unit and College by maintaining a productive program of scholarship, pursuing external funding, supervising undergraduate and graduate students, teaching both core required courses and needed electives (e.g., Gender, Race, and Technoscience) that contribute to the women’s studies undergraduate and graduate curricula and to cross-disciplinary curricula (e.g., certificates, minors, majors) in AI and data science, and engaging actively in the life and success of the Center and the College. More information about the Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research can be found at: http://wst.ufl.edu/.

The Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research is committed to creating an environment that affirms diversity across a variety of dimensions, including ability, class, ethnicity/race, gender identity and expression, and sexual identity. We seek applicants who can contribute to such an environment through their scholarship, teaching, mentoring, and professional service. The university and greater Gainesville community enjoy a diversity of cultural events, restaurants, year-round outdoor recreational activities, and social opportunities, including organizations that support the interests of people from varied backgrounds.
