Visiting Scholar in Ethics and Technology

Phillips Academy seeks a talented, interdisciplinary-minded Visiting Scholar
in Ethics and Technology with interests in philosophy, computer science, and
design for a two-year position exploring the intersections of ethics and
technology with our students and faculty.  The two-year appointment will begin
in September of 2022.  Minimum requirements include demonstrated success in the
teaching at the secondary or university level and a demonstrated commitment to
writing and public-facing scholarship in the intersection between the fields of
technology and ethics.

The role has three main components: teaching, collaboration, and writing.

Responsibilities include teaching two classes per term.  The topics of these
courses will lie at the intersections of computer science, technology, and
ethics.  The department chair will determine specific assignments in
consideration of both the Academy’s needs and the expertise of the candidate.
There will likely also be opportunities for interdisciplinary teaching with
faculty from other parts of campus.

The successful candidate will support faculty projects currently developed
through the Tang Institute.  In particular, this person would work closely with
the ethi{CS} project, an undertaking led by Andover faculty and supported by the
Tang Institute that endeavors to authentically embed ethical inquiry into
computer science and STEM classes.  Similarly, this role provides support to
student projects with a focus in these areas.

The successful candidate will contribute to the Tang Institute’s role as a
thought leader in the larger educational community.  Through the use of
traditional and online publishing platforms, the successful candidate will
contribute to a robust learning community of teachers interested in exploring
ethics, computer science, and robotics and other areas within the technology
sector.  We seek candidates with a demonstrated interest in public-facing
writing who would use this position to advance a significant writing project.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the
position is filled.  Please visit our application portalto submit a cover letter
(addressed to Mr. Jeffrey C. Domina, Dean of Faculty, Phillips Academy), résumé,
and two letters of reference.

Phillips Academy is an intentionally diverse and inclusive residential
community.  Although the visiting scholar position is not a residential faculty
position, please address directly in your cover letter your experience and
interest in working in an intentionally diverse and inclusive school community.
We welcome applications from individuals who identify with groups typically
