Technology Ethics Postdoctoral Fellows Program

the text

The Notre Dame Technology Ethics Center (ND TEC) and Notre Dame-IBM Technology Ethics Lab (the Lab) annually seek applicants for technology ethics postdoctoral fellowships from eligible graduate students or recent graduates. Appointments are for a minimum of one year, and fellows can apply for a one-time, one-year renewal. We typically hire two to three postdoctoral fellows each year.

ND TEC/the Lab are interdisciplinary units with affiliated faculty and students from a variety of areas around the University. As such, our postdocs are open to applicants from a broad range of disciplines and backgrounds. We invite applications from doctoral students and recent graduates across disciplines who are writing dissertations on or are engaged in major research on topics related to technology ethics, broadly construed. Disciplines could include philosophy, engineering, data science, information studies, business, sociology, anthropology, history, law, critical studies, etc.

While fellows spend the majority of their time conducting independent research, they also each teach one undergraduate seminar per semester for the technology ethics minor (the same seminar can be taught both semesters).

Applicants should be (a) enrolled in either a doctoral program or in a graduate program that leads to a terminal degree in that field (e.g., law) or (b) a recent graduate of such a program (within two years). 

Postdoctoral fellows receive an annual stipend of $60,000/12 months. Fellows are expected to be in residence at the University of Notre Dame during the academic year.

While we are currently closed to applications, we plan to begin recruiting for the 2023–24 academic year in fall 2022. You’re welcome to email Kellye Mitros, ND TEC’s associate director of operations, with any questions.
