    Uppsala University 

    Deadline: April 30, 2019

    The histories of racism and religion are entangled. To understand how processes of racism, nationalism, and exclusion come about in different forms we need to view these developments as intertwined with religion and ideas of religion and religiosity.

    The rise of islamophobia and antisemitism, discrimination and violent persecution of minorities in the name of religion or secularism, and controversies around the visibility of religious practices in public space, all point to the need for a deeper understanding of in what ways religion historically and in the present plays a central role in producing and upholding racism and colonial practices/structures.

    Religion has also played a central role in counter movements such as civil rights, indigenous rights, anti-colonial and, anti-apartheid movements. An additional aspect to explore is religious symbols and representations that have been part of anti-racist art and music and the place of spiritualism in artistic resistance to racism. What role has and does religion play in developing and upholding racist and nationalist structures? In what ways are different entangled forms of racism and religion being manifested? How can we for example understand antisemitism and islamophobia on a global and local scale? What does it mean to be living in a supposedly post-racial, post-secular world? What role does religion and/or spirituality play in antiracist struggles and movements?

    The Center for Multidisciplinary Research on Racism (CEMFOR) invites scholars to send in abstracts for paper presentations and/or session proposals.

    KEY CONCEPTS

    Racism, Religion, Secularism, Post secularism, Intersectionality, Spirituality, Colonialism, Cast, Race, Racialization, Class, Gender, Antisemitism, Islamophobia, Antiracism, Fascism, Interreligious activism, Activism, Oppression, Minority persecution, Globalization, Tradition, Nationalism, Modernity.

    The Alan Turing Institute

    Deadline: February 28, 2019

    The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. The Institute is named in honour of the scientist Alan Turing and its mission is to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better.

    Public Policy Programme

    The public policy programme works alongside policymakers to explore how data-driven public service provision and policy innovation might solve long-running ‘wicked’ policy problems and to develop the ethical foundations for the use of data science and artificial intelligence in policy-making.

    Our aim is to contribute to the Institute’s mission - to make great leaps in data science and artificial intelligence research in order to change the world for the better - by developing research, tools, and techniques that have a positive impact on the lives of as many people as possible.

    As part of our work, the public policy programme has launched a new research project, focused on the role and impacts of women’s representation in data science and AI and how data-driven insights can be used to inform policy and enhance gender equality.

    Women in Data Science and AI

    Digital technologies, data science and AI have diverse and far-reaching implications for the lives of individuals and the functioning of societies. It is imperative for women to be equal partners in developing the algorithms, setting the research agendas, and building the applications underpinned by data science and AI. Nevertheless, at the moment, women are underrepresented in data science and AI professions. With the goal of remedying this issue, the Alan Turing Institute has established the research project Women in Data Science and AI.

    This project will carry out multidisciplinary research to answer the following questions:

    • Why are there so few women in data science and AI professions?
    • What interventions would help increase the number and influence of women in data science and AI?
    • What impacts does the gender deficit have, for example in setting the research agenda and driving the applications of data science and AI?

    Both quantitative and qualitative research will be used to inform our understanding of the gender gap in data science and AI and generate new actionable insights and recommendations to tackle it. We are recruiting for two roles. One Research Fellow will focus on quantitative research, and one Research Fellow will focus on the qualitative aspects of the work. This advertisement is for the qualitative Research Fellow, who is expected to have a social science background.

    Ultimately, the goal of the Women in Data Science and AI research project is to increase women’s participation in these fields and ensure that women’s perspectives and priorities inform the insights that data scientists generate, the algorithms that they build, and the research agendas that they define.

    The Role

    The Alan Turing Institute is recruiting a full-time postdoctoral scholar to work in the public policy programme. The scholar will focus entirely on the Women in Data Science and AI research project, applying social science and quantitative research techniques to study the participation and role of women in these fields.

    The Research Fellow will investigate:

    • Why women do not enter or do not remain in data science and AI. Research should bring forth new evidence and analysis of issues such as gender bias in hiring, career progression path, gender pay gap, lack of mentorship, and male-dominated office culture.
    • How gender deficit in these fields shapes the research agenda, insights and applications of new data-driven technologies. Such impacts could manifest themselves in a myriad of ways, including the interaction between the values and beliefs of technology creators and the technology products themselves, incorporation of bias within technology applications, the setting of research agendas, and representation of women-specific issues within such agendas.

    Research should translate into concrete recommendations and policy measures aimed at increasing the number of women in data science and AI professions.

    The successful candidate will join the Institute’s public policy programme and will play an important role in shaping and executing the programme’s research into the role of women in Data Science and AI. The Research Fellow will be able to work closely with academics and policy-makers in an interdisciplinary, dynamic and collaborative environment.

    Duties and Responsibilities

    The core functions of the post-doctoral Research Fellow are as follows:

    • Carry out a systematic review and synthesis of existing work in this field and work with other members of the project team to lay out a research agenda for the Women in Data Science and AI project.
    • Work with the public policy programme’s leadership team to develop an innovative research strategy and carry out original research to analyse the factors influencing female representation, as well as the position and role of women in data science and AI. Research should ultimately contribute actionable insights to improve gender imbalances in the data science and AI fields.
    • Serve as a key link within the Turing’s academic community, as well as with external partners in the policy and gender equality space.
      • Externally, the Research Fellow will build and maintain relationships with external stakeholders as part of the public policy programme’s external engagement strategy. In particular, the Fellow will meet with external partners to identify common areas of interest, resources and partnerships.
      • Internally, the Fellow will collaboratively set the intellectual direction of the research on factors influencing the position of women in data science and AI, will identify relevant academics from the Turing community to collaborate with where relevant, and will develop and implement work-plans to ensure timely delivery of objectives.
    • Participate in knowledge exchange activities as appropriate. This may include:
    • Preparing research outputs that are tailored to a diverse audience, ranging from policy-makers to researchers, civil society and the general public.
    • Working with the Turing’s Communications team to ensure that the Turing’s research is effectively promoted in the mainstream media.
    • Working in close coordination with other members of the public policy programme to maximise the programme’s influence on ongoing policy debates.
    • Representing the Turing at external conferences and events.
    • Collaborate with other researchers within the Women in Data Science and AI project, and the Alan Turing Institute in general, as appropriate.

    Person Specification

    The successful candidate will have:

    • Essential
      • PhD or equivalent experience that provides suitable theoretical tools to understand the socio-economic and/or political issues raised in the context of women’s role in data science and AI.
