Chair, Technology, Ethics and Society - Center for Digital Ethics Cluster

Georgetown University: Main Campus: Georgetown College: Center for Digital Ethics

Location: Washington, DC

Open Date: Nov 12, 2021

Deadline: Aug 01, 2022 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time


In support of Georgetown's interdisciplinary initiatives in technology and society, we invite applications for three new tenure-line faculty positions: two endowed full professorships and one assistant professor appointment. Disciplines of interest for the cluster hire span a broad range, including, but not limited to, computer science, philosophy, statistics and data science, law, political science, information science, anthropology, sociology, psychology, history, English, and communications.

Georgetown University is launching a new Center for Digital Ethics (http://digitalethics.georgetown.edu/), which will combine researchers from computer and data sciences with researchers from the humanities, law, and social sciences, to advance frameworks and solutions for digital technologies for the betterment of humanity. All three appointments will have research professor appointments in the Center, in addition to their tenure-line appointments in a department.

Georgetown is also launching a new suite of undergraduate programs at the intersection of digital technology, ethics, and society, including a new computer science major integrating applied ethics and policy into the computer science curriculum and a new interdisciplinary program, with attendant minor, in Technology, Ethics, and Society for non-technologists. All three appointments will contribute to the teaching mission of this program as well as appropriate other programs.

Desirable areas of research interest include, but are not limited to, issues bearing on fairness, bias, and equity, access and disability, privacy and data governance, racial justice, gender and sexuality, sustainability and environmental justice. Opportunities are available for connecting with other Georgetown efforts, including the Racial Justice Institute, Disability Studies, and the Georgetown Environment Initiative.


For this position, Chair in Technology, Ethics, and Society, we seek a colleague able to be appointed at the Associate or Full Professor rank with tenure; the discipline is open. We seek a colleague with a passion for undergraduate education and a proven track record for innovation and leadership in education related to tech and society. The expectation is that this Chair will also serve an inaugural term as Director of the interdisciplinary undergraduate program, to facilitate its visioning and development.

For all positions, we seek candidates with a collaborative mindset, interested in fostering a highly creative, interdisciplinary research and teaching, including those working on non-traditional interventions. Appointments will include primary appointments in tenure homes along with a secondary appointment in the Center for Digital Ethics; opportunities for other cross-appointments are possible.

Application Instructions

The search is overseen by a coordinated search committee which has representatives from computer science, philosophy, law, mathematics and statistics, communication/culture/technology, and data sciences.

Material received by January 15, 2022 will receive full consideration, but we will accept applications until the position is filled.
