AOC Open
Workload Full time
Vacancies 5
Location Austin, Texas, United States
Job description

For the last 35 years, our 50-person team has been building Cyc, the world’s only AI that deeply understands what it’s reasoning about (as opposed to what everyone else today calls “AI”: statistical machine learning and limited-logic knowledge-graph searching). Human-level Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) only needs to be created once. Now that we are nearing our goal, would you like to be part of our team that pushes across the finish line?   As an Ontological Engineer, you will find and fill gaps in Cyc’s knowledge about common sense, context, and how the world works. You must be exceptionally good at introspecting and articulating what you know and why you believe it. You must also be able to express those things formally as sentences in predicate calculus, the representation language that our AI understands.   You should enjoy the challenge of thinking about multiple reasoning paths by which an answer could have been reached and engaging in pro-con reasoning.

What it’s like to work as an OE Team Member

  • In addition to codifying domain-independent knowledge, many of our OE’s work on one or two particular Cyc applications and gain expertise in those particular areas of healthcare, energy, aerospace, manufacturing, etc.

  • Most of the work goes in teams, so OE’s need to be able to communicate effectively and work collaboratively with their colleagues.

  • For some applications, speed matters, and in those cases the OE’s will tinker and experiment with redundant representations and reasoning heuristics that enable Cyc to find the same answers but much more efficiently.  

  • Part of the OE’s responsibility is to create regression tests to notice when Cyc stops getting some things right (e.g., due to dissonant new things it’s been taught.)

  • There is no one right way to represent things: the job involves judgement and taste, not just objective analysis; OE’s are as much artists as they are engineers.

Qualifications

  • You must be fluent in translating in both directions between English sentences and logically equivalent sentences in predicate calculus.   No particular degree or training is required; some of our OE’s never graduated high school, but most of them have their Ph.D. in Philosophy with a specialization in symbolic logic.  

  • You must be self-motivated and have an interest in artificial intelligence. Cycorp emphasizes having great and creative employees over having a rigid structured environment.

  • As mentioned above, your job as an OE is, roughly, to teach Cyc how to think. So you must be able to hypothesize and articulate plausible reasoning paths. One of the most common ways of doing that is introspecting on how you are able to answer a question, so that makes accurate introspection a valuable asset for an OE to have.

Non-requirements that are plusses:

  • experience and training in artificial intelligence

  • experience and training in computer science and/or programming, especially in LISP

  • domain knowledge in healthcare, finance, energy, and/or manufacturing

  • experience and training in linguistics, natural language understanding, and/or natural language generation

  • client-facing experience (sales and/or technical support)

  • technical project management experience

Notice

Cycorp’s AI R&D is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and applications are understood to be for regular, full time employment on-site here. Cycorp is an equal opportunity employer. We conform to all the laws, statutes, and regulations concerning equal employment opportunities and affirmative action.

Location Granville, Ohio, United States
Start date Fall 2020
Job description

Denison University seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member to further develop its new interdisciplinary program in Data Analytics to start in the Fall of 2020. Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. no later than August 2020, and have a broad and deep formal education in a humanities discipline and in data-driven approaches to research in that discipline. The successful applicant will be actively engaged in research that applies advanced data analytics techniques to significant literary, historical, philosophical, cultural, linguistic, or artistic inquiry. The successful applicant will also be committed to teaching undergraduate students in an interdisciplinary setting. New hires are normally made at the rank of Assistant Professor, but hiring at an advanced rank may be possible with significant prior experience.

For more information on Denison’s Data Analytics program, please visit http://denison.edu/academics/data-analytics.

We seek to hire an individual with deep and innovative background in the humanities and data analysis that is representative of the applied, interdisciplinary nature of Data Analytics. This individual will join an existing group of interdisciplinary faculty to continue to grow and develop the Data Analytics major within our liberal arts curriculum. The candidate will have an opportunity to infuse quantitative and digital humanities examples into our curriculum, and to help raise the level of data-driven humanistic research, awareness, and integration at Denison and in the broader community. Consequently, candidates for the position must have significant formal education in analytics, and actively engage in research that uses or develops advanced data analytics techniques. The ideal candidate will hold a Ph.D. in a humanities discipline or in a data science field, and their research should significantly emphasize data-driven techniques and quantitative approaches to questions within the humanities.

Candidates must demonstrate successful teaching at the undergraduate level and a strong desire for pedagogical and curricular innovation within a liberal arts environment. We are seeking energetic self-starters who have a passion for bridging traditional disciplinary boundaries and an interest in linking the classroom to the wider faculty and community. Teaching responsibilities will include core courses for the Data Analytics major (course specifics can be found at https://denison.edu/academics/data-analytics/courses), as well as the potential to design and teach courses in the candidate’s data analytic specialty. The typical teaching load is 5 courses per year.

The Data Analytics Program is growing rapidly at Denison, and is currently among the largest majors on campus, with more than 120 students. As interdisciplinary majors, all students choose a domain area in which to develop disciplinary knowledge in addition to the core Data Analytics skills. Thus, candidates will have an opportunity to creatively engage with students across broad demographic, academic, and career interests, to apply and connect their skill sets.

The Denison faculty is a community of teacher-scholars. Therefore, candidates must also have a clearly articulated, productive research program related to Data Analytics that is able to accommodate undergraduate research and flourish in a liberal arts environment. Denison hosts a vibrant and well-funded undergraduate research program, and offers competitive professional development funds and a pre-tenure research leave following a successful third-year review. Strong resources exist to support and mentor teaching – for example, the Center for Learning and Teaching, Teaching Matters discussions, and workshops to help new faculty transition.

Finally, successful candidates will demonstrate their interest in contributing to campus governance and the life of the broader Denison community. Individuals with a demonstrated interest in community outreach are especially desirable.

Denison University is an increasingly diverse, highly selective, residential liberal arts college enrolling approximately 2,300 students from across the nation and around the world. We are located thirty miles from Columbus, Ohio, the state capital, which hosts a wide range of cultural and artistic opportunities.

Preferred Qualifications
• Knowledge of one or more programming languages (R and Python strongly desired)
• Experience and ability to conduct quantitative research in a specific humanities field
• Ability to teach novice to advanced level undergraduate courses
• Very good communication, organization, and team collaboration skills
• Ability to contribute in meaningful ways to the university’s continuing commitment to diversity and inclusive pedagogy
• PhD defense completed no later than August 2020
• PhD in a humanities discipline or data science/analytics with strong research or work experience in digital and/or data-driven approaches to humanistic research.

To apply, please go to https://employment.denison.edu and submit
• Cover letter speaking to the areas mentioned above 
• Curriculum vita
• Statement on your teaching philosophy, experience and effectiveness, including how you will engage with and foster diversity on campus
• Statement on your current and future research program
• 4 references, of which at least 2 must address teaching
• Evidence of effective teaching, including teaching materials and evaluations (if available)
• Recent article-length example of your data analytics related research
• Transcripts of graduate work (unofficial acceptable for applications)

We will begin reviewing applications on October 1, 2019 and continue to consider applications until the position is filled.

To achieve our mission as a liberal arts college, we continually strive to foster a diverse campus community, which recognizes the value of all persons regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender, color, gender identity and or expression, sexual orientation, family configuration, disability, socioeconomic status, religion, national origin, age, or military status.

Job description

The Psychology Department at Franklin & Marshall College invites applications for a tenure-track professorship beginning July 1, 2020. Applicants must either possess or be close to completing a doctorate degree. The rank will be Assistant Professor or Instructor depending on qualifications. 

We seek candidates whose research integrates disciplines included in the cognitive science framework to better understand the mind and/or human experience. The successful candidate will demonstrate capacities and skills as follows:

First, we are particularly interested in candidates who will contribute to the intellectual vibrancy and diversity of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service, and who are committed to engaging and inspiring our broadly diverse undergraduate student population. The College has an exciting, nationally recognized vision for cultivating an inclusive community of talented young scholars. The department asks all applicants to address in their teaching statement how their experience, training, and/or potential contributions might serve to advance F&M’s commitment to teaching and mentoring young people from diverse personal experiences, values, and worldviews that arise from differences of culture and circumstance. 

Second, we seek applicants who will contribute meaningfully to the Psychology Department’s interdisciplinary program with the Philosophy Department, theScientific and Philosophical Studies of Mind (SPM) program. Research specialization area is open; however, the candidate must be competent to teach and mentor undergraduate students in cognitive science. The candidate will be expected to offer upper-level courses related to their specialty area in Psychology; core courses in the SPM Program (i.e.,  SPM100 and/or SPM499); and courses that serve the College'sgeneral education curriculum, Connections. Teaching load is 3/2. The search committee asks all applicants to submit a separate “SPM statement” of 250 to 500 words explaining their potential for contribution to the Cognitive Science portion of the SPM program. The SPM statement should convey how the candidate would endeavor to integrate questions and insights that animate both Philosophy and Psychology and how they would prepare students for upper-level Psychology courses and lower-level Philosophy courses (e.g., Philosophy of Mind). 

Third, the successful candidate will provide evidence for an active research program that will contribute to the Psychology Department’s robust commitment to scholarship. All members of the department are engaged scholars, and our coursework emphasizes student research, including lab experiences, across the curriculum. To secure tenure and promotion, the candidate will be expected to maintain an active program of qualitative or quantitative research resulting in peer-reviewed publications. The Psychology Department is seated in the Natural Science Division of the College, and start-up funds and laboratory space are available to support a research program. 

The successful candidate also will participate in academic advising, service, and departmental citizenship as we work together to advance the College's mission

Description 

The Mahindra Humanities Center invites applications for one-year postdoctoral fellowships in connection with the Center’s Andrew W. Mellon Foundation seminar on the topic of migration and the humanities. 

Migration plays as critical a role in the moral imagination of the humanities as it does in shaping the activist vision of humanitarianism and human rights. Too often, the humanities are summoned merely as witnesses to the spectacle of the significant currents and crises of contemporary life. Literature and the arts are viewed as iconic presences whose primary aesthetic and moral values lie in their illustrative powers of empathy and evocation. Yet the intellectual formation of the humanities—their very conception of the nature of meaning, knowledge, and morals—is deeply resonant with the displacement of values and the revision of norms that shape the transitional and translational narratives of migrant lives.

Built around pedagogies of representation and interpretation—textual, visual, digital, political, ethical, ecological, etc.—the humanities engage with the history of shifting relations between cultural expression, historical transition, and political transformation. The ethics of citizenship in our time are defined as much by migration and resettlement as by indigenous belonging, and the humanities play a central role in defining the terms and the territories of cultural citizenship as it creates innovative institutions and identities in the making of a civil society.

We welcome applications from scholars in all fields whose work innovatively engages with migration and the humanities. In addition to pursuing their own research projects, fellows will be core participants in the bi-weekly seminar meetings for both academic terms of the fellowship. Other participants will include faculty and graduate students from Harvard and other universities in the region, and occasional visiting speakers.

Terms and Conditions

Fellows will receive stipends of $65,000, medical insurance, additional research support of $2,500, and (for those not already in residence in Greater Boston) $1,500 in moving expenses. Fellows are expected to be in residence at Harvard for the term of the fellowship.  

Eligibility and Deadline Information

Applicants for 2020-21 fellowships must have received a doctorate or terminal degree in or after May 2017. Applicants without a doctorate or terminal degree must demonstrate that they have completed all requirements for a terminal degree (i.e. dissertation defense) by August 1, 2020. International scholars outside the United States are appointed under either the J-1 visa (Research Scholar status) or F-1 OPT (Optional Practical Training), depending on their circumstances. If awarded a fellowship, the term of appointment for international scholars is September 1, 2020-August 31, 2021. The Mahindra Center reserves the right to cancel awards if the recipient is unable to meet these conditions of completion and visa status.

The application deadline for applicants to submit their materials is November 15, 2019. The deadline for receipt of letters of recommendation is December 6, 2019.

Application Instructions 

Please apply using our online application: https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/9077

In addition to biographical and professional information, applicants are asked to submit:

  1. A curriculum vitae.
  2. A statement of the research project (1,000-3,000 words) that provides a detailed description of what the applicant proposes to do during the fellowship year.
  3. One chapter- or article-length writing sample (no longer than 40 pages).
  4. Names and contact information of three referees, who will be asked by a system-generated email to upload a letter of recommendation once the candidate’s application has been submitted. Three letters of recommendation are required, and the application is considered complete only when three letters have been received. Recommendations may be those included in the applicant’s placement dossier, but they must specifically address the proposed research project. Letters should be uploaded to the electronic application.

Job description

The Jagiellonian University in Kraków welcomes applications for a postdoctoral position ("adiunkt")  in the project "Deep uncertainties in bioethics: genetic research, preventive medicine, reproductive decisions" (BIOUNCERTAINTY), funded by the European Research Council Starting Grant (ERC). The Principal Investigator of this project is Dr. Tomasz Żuradzki (Philosophy, Jagiellonian University). The Jagiellonian University is one of the oldest universities in Europe (established in 1364) and now one of the best two universities in Poland. 

Job description

The person appointed will be expected to be engaged in high-level research relevant to the project goals, to publish in their specialist field, present papers at appropriate scholarly conferences and meetings, and assist with the administration of the project and its events. There is no obligation to teach (but the possibility exists if someone would like to do so). Knowledge of Polish is not required. 

Salary: €30,000-45,000 gross per annum depending on experience (health and social insurance are included, we can also cover expenses for travel, conferences and research stays).

The successful candidate will initially appointed for a period of one year, which may be extended by two years. Starting date: between October 1, 2019 and October 1, 2020. The position is based at the Interdisciplinary Centre of Ethics and the Institute of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University, in central Kraków (52 Grodzka Street).

Application deadline: the position will be formally opened in the second half of 2019, but if interested, please contact the PI of the project (t.zuradzki@uj.edu.pl). 

Project description

Uncertainty is everywhere, as the saying goes, but rarely considered in ethical reflections. This project aims to reinterpret ethical discussions on current advances in biomedicine: instead of understanding bioethical positions as extensions of classical normative views in ethics (consequentialism, deontologism, contractualism etc.), my project interprets them more accurately as involving various normative approaches to decision making under uncertainty. The following hard cases in bioethics provide the motivation for research:

1) Regulating scientific research under uncertainty about ontological/moral status (e.g. parthenogenetic stem cells derived from human parthenotes) in the context of meta-reasoning under normative uncertainty.

2) The value of preventive medicine in healthcare (e.g. vaccinations) in the context of decision-making under metaphysical indeterminacy.

3) Population or reproductive decisions (e.g. preimplantation genetic diagnosis) in the context of valuing mere existence.

The main drive behind this project is the rapid progress in biomedical research combined with new kinds of uncertainties. These new “deep” uncertainties trigger specific forms of emotions and cognitions that influence normative judgments and decisions. The main research questions that will be addressed by conceptual analysis, new psychological experiments, and case studies are the following: how do the heuristics and biases (H&B) documented by behavioral scientists influence the formation of normative judgments in bioethical contexts; how should we demarcate between distorted and undistorted value judgments; to what extent is it permissible for individuals or policy makers to yield to H&B? The hypothesis is that many existing bioethical rules, regulations, practices seem to have emerged from unreliable reactions, rather than by means of deliberation on the possible justifications for alternative ways to determine them under several layers and types of uncertainty.


About the workplace

The Institute of Philosophy at the Jagiellonian University is located in the very heart of Kraków, on 52 Grodzka Street, and now is one of the best philosophy centres in Poland. In the past few years, our faculty members have published papers in the main international journals in philosophy, bioethics and cognitive science: American Journal of Bioethics; Journal of Medical Ethics; Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics; Ethics and Information Technology; Synthese; Erkenntnis; The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science; European Journal for Philosophy of Science; Studies in the History and Philosophy of Modern Physics; Biology & Philosophy; Intelligence; Memory and Cognition; Journal of Philosophical Logic... Here is the list of selected publications: https://filozofia.uj.edu.pl/en_GB/publications

Beyond the classroom, students and instructors continue to collaborate in a dynamic school community, centered on student clubs, activities, competitions, and student publications.

  • Prepare for class, lead synchronous online discussion sections, hold office hours, and assist students in using course materials.
  • Monitor student progress, give feedback, grade assessments, and discuss performance with students, parents, Division Head, counseling staff, and administrative staff.
  • Assist with development and revision of curricula.
  • Develop and teach residential summer courses.
  • Serve as advisor to student clubs and activities and participate in OHS community events.
  • Serve on committees within OHS.
