Enabling a Responsible AI Ecosystem-Programme Director information sessions

AHRC is appointing a Programme Director to drive, oversee, and coordinate the delivery of the new Collaborative AI Programme.




AHRC is preparing to launch a new Collaborative Programme: Enabling a Responsible AI Ecosystem. We want the development and deployment of AI and related data-driven technologies to be responsible, ethical, and accountable by default.

Programme activities will harness the UK‚Äôs strengths in responsible AI ‚Äď from humanities, arts and social sciences, through to engineering and computer science ‚Äď supporting cutting-edge research at the interfaces between sectors and disciplines and connecting researchers from a range of disciplines with relevant stakeholders in policy (including but not limited to regulatory bodies and standards organisations) and industry.

AHRC is appointing a Programme Director to drive, oversee, and coordinate the delivery of the programme, working closely with AHRC and other partners as required/desirable. The full opportunity and application process will open in June 2022.

The Programme Director will:

‚ÄĘ Provide intellectual and strategic leadership, visibility and clarity of focus across the programme

‚ÄĘ Ensure coherence and cohesiveness in the scope and focus of programme calls

‚ÄĘ Identify and fill gaps in knowledge and skills necessary to further develop the AI ecosystem

‚ÄĘ Lead programme-level engagement with policy and industry stakeholders, drawing on their expertise to define programme priorities that align with benefits

‚ÄĘ Lead engagement with different, sometimes disparate, intellectual and professional communities and support the establishment of new projects and partnerships at the interfaces between them

‚ÄĘ Facilitate effective and timely knowledge exchange and information sharing across the programme

‚ÄĘ Ensure effective and timely delivery of the programme

The Programme Director must be based at a UKRI-eligible research organisation. The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate considerable strengths and expertise at the intersection of humanities, social science, and STEM disciplines in relation to AI and data-driven technologies. They will also have experience working across sectors to enhance and advance research translation and impact.

AHRC are holding 3 information sessions to answer questions about the Programme Director role from interested applicants. Please note that all 3 sessions will be the same.
