Job description

The Notre Dame Technology Ethics Center (ND-TEC) and the Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) have partnered to provide up to two Technology Ethics Fellowships during the 2020-2021 academic year. The ND-TEC Fellows will spend all or part of the year in residence at the University of Notre Dame working on a technology ethics-related project consonant with the broader NDIAS theme, the Nature of Trust.

ND-TEC Fellows receive half of their academic year salary (up to a maximum amount), subsidized housing (for those who currently reside outside of the South Bend area), a research allowance of up to $500 per semester, and a private office at the NDIAS. ND-TEC and the NDIAS will also provide up to two undergraduate research assistants from the University of Notre Dame to each ND-TEC Fellow.

Fellowships are open to scholars, scientists, and artists in all disciplines who are conducting research on technology ethics issues connected to the theme of The Nature of Trust. Fellows will typically have a faculty appointment at their home institution, but these fellowships are also open to independent researchers, postdoctoral scholars, and those who have recently received their Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree.

ND-TEC Fellows may be in residence for the entire academic year (August-May), for a semester, or in some cases for shorter periods of time. Because ND-TEC Fellows will be embedded within the NDIAS cohort, some preference is given to those who can be in residence for the entire academic year.

Applications for ND-TEC Fellowships must be submitted through Interfolio and should include the following: 

  1. Completed online application form;
  2. Curriculum vitae (no more than four pages, single-spaced);
  3. Proposal abstract (no more than 400 words);
  4. Fellowship research proposal (no more than six pages, double-spaced - see Interfolio for instructions);
  5. Proposal bibliography (no more than two pages, single-spaced);
  6. Names and contact information for three references;
  7. One representative publication or writing sample (from applicants who have completed doctoral or other terminal degrees within the past five years);
  8. (Optional) up to two pages of non-text materials supporting the research proposal;
  9. (Optional) cover letter.

Review of applications will begin on April 1, 2020 and will continue until the positions are filled.
