Northeastern University is searching for multiple faculty positions at all ranks (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and/or Professor) in the broad research area of AI and Social Justice, which is central to Northeastern's impact in the broader world and is key to curricular transformations, external partnerships, new research agendas, as well as the development of the emerging field of humanics. This thematic hiring area is looking for outstanding faculty who explore AI and analyze its ethical and social implications.

Tenure home will be in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences, the College of Arts, Media, and Design, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, or the School of Law. A secondary appointment in another college is encouraged, depending on the candidate's discipline and research focus.

Responsibilities

Candidates interested in conducting high-impact research programs and committed to teaching excellence in the broad areas above are encouraged to apply.
