The School of Computer Science of McGill University, Montreal, invites applications for a tenure-track appointment (all ranks) with a focus on computer science approaches to address anti-Black racism and other types of social inequities.
Examples of areas of interest include:
– Data science techniques to detect, monitor, and study the presence and consequences of racial inequities in our societies.
– Design of fair/just artificial intelligence and algorithmic systems, with applications toward reducing racial inequities.
– Development of accountable, transparent, and ethical computer systems from critical human-computer interaction and software engineering perspectives.
Candidates must have a strong publication record in the fields of data science, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, or computational aspects of fairness, accountability and transparency (FAccT), and a demonstrated record for the development of new approaches to detect and/or avoid anti-Black racism and systemic biases in computer systems. Background in critical race theory is desirable.
This position is one of six currently being filled in the areas of African and Black Studies at McGill.
