Job description

The University of Notre Dame seeks a founding director for the new Notre Dame Technology Ethics Center (ND-TEC). ND-TEC, the centerpiece of Notre Dame’s major new investment in technology ethics, will develop and support multidisciplinary research on normative and applied questions related to the impact of technology on humanity. It will also create curriculum to involve Notre Dame Students at all levels in issues of technology ethics and engage with leading thinkers in industry, non-profit organizations, and governmental agencies to develop policy.  The new director will have a national or international reputation in the area of technology ethics and demonstrated leadership and organizational abilities. The director will be appointed in an academic unit in his or her home discipline in addition to the appointment as Director of ND- TEC. ND-TEC expects to hire at least ten to twelve new tenure-line faculty members across a variety of disciplines. ND-TEC will draw on existing faculty across campus and will work with departments and schools to identify outstanding new candidates who would be interested in engaging the Center’s research agenda. ND-TEC will also host resident scholars and visitors from academia and industry, sponsor regular conferences and workshops, and bring in outside speakers on topics that would interface with the research of the faculty in new and compelling ways.

The University of Notre Dame, an international Catholic research university, seeks to attract, develop, and retain the highest quality faculty, staff and administration. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and is committed to building a culturally diverse workplace. We strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates and those candidates attracted to a university with a Catholic identity. Moreover, Notre Dame prohibits discrimination against veterans or disabled qualified individuals, and requires affirmative action by covered contractors to employ and advance veterans and qualified individuals with disabilities in compliance with 41 CFR 60-741.5(a) and 41 CFR 60-300.5(a).
