Johns Hopkins University seeks applicants for tenured faculty
positions in Artificial Intelligence (AI) across all departments
and divisions of the university. These faculty will hold Bloomberg
Distinguished Professorships in the area of AI systems working
within application domains as part of the BDP AI-X Cluster.
Candidates must be interdisciplinary working at the intersection of
AI and another domain, including science, engineering, medicine or
public health, among others. We anticipate multiple hires at the
associate and full professor levels, who will then guide our hiring
of multiple assistant professors in this area.
The AI-X Cluster will build on Johns Hopkins’ leadership to advance
AI to drive discovery, decision-making, and prediction in science,
engineering, medicine, and public health, and leverage JHU’s
remarkably strong culture of faculty collaboration and
interdisciplinary work. The design of these systems requires
interpretability for experts and integrates domain knowledge with
data-driven AI. These systems must include human-AI interactions
and collaborations, as well as conditioning on many data types
(including images, videos, audio recordings, natural language text,
electronic medical records). Recognizing that these data types can
often lead to the creation of algorithms that exacerbate racial and
other biases, these systems must also ensure equity, fairness,
accountability and transparency, which are critical to future
discoveries and for guiding decisions across science, engineering,
public health, and medicine.
The Bloomberg Distinguished Professorships Cluster Initiative at
Johns Hopkins University is part of an ambitious investment in
interdisciplinary research to bridge academic disciplines and open
novel fields of inquiry to tackle society’s most complex problems.
Recruiting 100 researchers and scholars, the BDP program was
established in 2013 and expanded in 2021 with gifts from Michael R.
Bloomberg, JHU alumnus and 108th mayor of New York City. Many of
these positions are dedicated to the Cluster Initiative to recruit
scholars and innovators who will draw on each other’s unique
strengths to make meaningful impact and generate solutions.
Applicants should possess distinguished records of achievement in
research and scholarship in the areas of artificial intelligence
(AI), machine learning, data science or related fields such as
computer vision, natural language processing, robotics, human-AI
interactions, trustworthy AI, or data-driven health and medicine.
Applicants are also expected to have demonstrated records in
teaching and mentorship of undergraduate and graduate students, and
to demonstrate standards of academic engagement compatible with
appointment to tenure at the Johns Hopkins University. Successful
candidates are likely to have demonstrated a commitment to
cross-disciplinary collaborations with researchers or practitioners
in the areas of artificial intelligence and related domains.
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, a description of
scholarly and teaching activity, and three letters of
