We are looking for someone to contribute to the smooth operation and administration of the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent Artificial Intelligence (ART-AI).

You’ll be at the heart of this exciting doctoral training programme, working with excellent students, partner organisations and academic staff. You’ll be responsible for the planning of student and partner events, including AI Challenge days, conferences, writing retreats, and partner-led workshops. You will arrange travel associated with the CDT, including internships, research visits and conference travel. You will also liaise with the Centre Manager and other staff regarding budgets and reimbursements. On the public engagement side, you will co-ordinate our social media presence and assist students in identifying and participating in public engagement activities.

Excellent communication and organisation skills are essential, as is the ability to work both in a team and with substantial independence.

Travel with overnight stays within the UK is expected, and occasionally beyond.

The CDT in ART-AI was founded in 2019 and its first students joined this year. This is an exciting time for the new Centre as it works with industry and other partners to train the next generation of specialists understanding, leading and informing the development of responsible AI.

The ART-AI students are on a 4-year integrated PhD programme, and spend their first year in the University doing a Masters-level training course. Over the following 3 years, the students pursue research in a specialised topic. ART-AI students collaborate during their PhD with a range of stakeholders, including commercial and non-commercial organisations and other academic institutions in the UK and internationally.

This is a part-time post (18.25 hours per week) with an expected fixed-term end date of September 2027.

The closing date for this job opportunity has now passed, and applications are no longer being accepted for this position
