Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Research Fellowship within the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University. The post is fixed-term for the period 30 January 2012 (or as soon as possible thereafter) to 30 September 2012.

The Future of Humanity Institute (FHI) is a unique multidisciplinary research institute at the University of Oxford, and is directed by Professor Nick Bostrom. The Institute’s mission is to bring excellent scholarship to bear on big-picture questions for humanity. The FHI is part of the Oxford Martin School, and is hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy.

The Institute’s work centres on developments that may affect the human condition in fundamental ways – and how we can better understand, evaluate, and respond to radical change. The postholder will conduct independent and collaborative research related to artificial intelligences and other cognitive systems, machine intelligence, superintelligence, and other associated topics. Further particulars are available from the FHI website (www.fhi.ox.ac.uk/) or by emailing Nailya.Nikitenko@philosophy.ox.ac.uk.
