ASPI Faculty Fellow

April 29, 2024

Emerging technologies pose interesting questions and formidable challenges that can be only met through broad trans-disciplinary research and inquiry. The Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI) at Syracuse University seeks to create a collaborative forum among designers, engineers, social scientists, and scholars in the arts and humanities to discuss these issues. To that end, each year ASPI will support a faculty fellow from across the campus with broad interest in the socio-historical, cultural-humanistic, political-economic, conceptual-philosophical, aesthetic-creative, or legal-ethical aspects of technology, particularly computing and Artificial Intelligence. We invite applicants whose work studies these aspects from cross-disciplinary perspectives. The fellowship is primarily focused on providing the space and opportunity for faculty members to develop their work, to engage with colleagues from inside and outside of SU, and to curate a conversation that focuses on their fields of study.

In return for a course buyout for a semester, the faculty fellow will be expected to:

  • Lead reading groups and discussions at the ASPI AI Seminar for five weeks throughout the academic year;
  • Invite and host a conversation with an invited scholar on a topic of their interest;
  • Participate in ASPI events and activities;
  • Become a member of the review committee to evaluate fellowship applications for the following year.

Interested faculty can email their CV and a one-page description of their research topic to by May 15th of each year. The selected Fellow will be announced by the end of May.
