Job description

Principal Duties

Purdue is a member of the American Association of Universities and seeks candidates of exceptional promise who will contribute to the excellence of our college. This position will have no teaching duties associated with it but requires strong organization skills in order to coordinate efforts among multiple faculty members across our college to pursue external funding in support of projects that will bolster the college’s AI community (e.g., helping to organize colloquia, workshops and other research endeavors around the theme of AI). Finally, the postdoctoral research associate will be expected to work on existing AI projects, as well as propose new projects as a lead author. Although we would like candidates who can contribute to the AI initiatives outlined in the next section, candidates are also welcome to work on AI-related projects outside of these efforts.

Artificial Intelligence at Purdue University

Purdue University and the College of Liberal Arts have embarked on a series of endeavors to promote the study of Artificial Intelligence on campus. Recently, the College made a six-figure investment in the Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence (VRAI) lab, which aims to employ cutting edge virtual reality technology to answer a variety of research questions. The College has also funded the creation of several social science research labs focused on issues related to AI. The Computational Social Science (CSS) Lab was established to promote the application and development of computational methods to large, typically complex, human and behavioral data. The Governance and Responsible AI Lab (GRAIL) supports research on the social, ethical, and governance implications of artificial intelligence. Each of these efforts is also supported by the newly created Joe and Maggie Kernan (JMK) Social Science lab and the Advanced Methods at Purdue (AMAP) initiative, a cross-college cluster working towards increasing methodological expertise and collaborative opportunities in behavioral, health, and social sciences.
