The first wave of searches for new faculty who will help propel UF’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) initiative are already underway. UF’s AI Jobs website currently lists more than 25 faculty AI job postings that span a diversity of fields ranging from unexpected areas like African American studies, ethics and hospitality to the more traditional fields of engineering and mathematics.
The UF Faculty Searches toolkit, designed to help departments navigate through the academic hiring process, was recently updated with additional resources to support AI recruitment efforts, including:
- A brief info sheet about the UF AI initiative that can be printed or shared via email with prospective candidates
- An expanded, customizable document in which departments can provide additional details about their unique areas of research and interests
- A guide to inclusive hiring, with supplementary information specific to AI recruitment efforts
UFHR’s Strategic Talent Group stands ready to assist departments with faculty searches and identify, attract and engage prospective candidates.
