Schwartz Reisman Fellowship for faculty and graduate students

The Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society (SRI) is seeking fellows from all academic disciplines across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities who are conducting work on ensuring powerful new technologies like AI are effective, safe, ethical, and fair and who are interested in reconceptualizing notions of the ways technology, systems, and society interact. 

Up to 15 U of T graduate students will be appointed for a one-year term. Graduate student fellows will receive $7,500 in research project support. Graduate fellows will have networking and professional development opportunities, including co-developing a workshop with their cohort, while faculty fellows will participate in, plan, and lead activities at the Institute, and contribute to our ongoing research agenda. 

Graduate fellows will be primarily enrolled in PhD programs, although exceptional master’s degree candidates are encouraged to apply. In line with the institute’s equity and diversity goals, we are especially interested in hearing from applicants from traditionally underrepresented groups. 

We look forward to seeing the creative, innovative, and much-needed work that is being conducted across U of T at the intersection of technology and society, and we hope to continue to build community and foster relationships between scholars of all disciplines from across the U of T ecosystem. 

Applications are due by June 25, 2021. Learn more
