Are you interested in exploring the mysterious world of trolling? Maybe you want to figure out how to combat misinformation? Perhaps you would like to learn more about how surveillance lurks in your everyday life? Or, possibly investigating how we can bring design justice and climate justice to the forefront of society?
If these topics intrigue you, consider applying to join the 2023-2024 cohort of the SERC (Social and Ethical Responsibilities in Computing) Scholars Program! Applications are open, but there is only ONE WEEK LEFT to have the chance to explore these cross-cutting topics.
Join a community of undergraduates, graduate students, Ph.D. candidates, and faculty to help advance the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing cross-cutting initiative on Social and Ethical Responsibilities of Computing.
What do SERC Scholars do?
- Collaborate in multidisciplinary teams with members from across computing, data sciences, humanities, arts, and social sciences, led by a SERC postdoc.
- Develop and pilot new SERC course materials in collaboration with postdocs and faculty.
- Engage with external partners to advance AI in the public interest.
- Conduct research in a new, exciting cross-disciplinary area.
Who is eligible to apply?
This opportunity is open to students across the MIT community who are excited to advance our broad mission to incorporate humanities, social science, social responsibility, and policy/civic perspectives into MIT’s teaching, research, and implementation of computing. SERC Scholars are hourly funded positions with selective and limited yearly enrollment.
