Artificial Intelligence in K-12 Classrooms: Postdoctoral Position

The Graduate School of Education at UC Berkeley invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher to join a national research effort that aims to develop, deploy, critique, and study state-of-the-art artificial intelligence in support of K-12 classroom learning. This effort brings together a geographically distributed team of researchers from nine universities with partners from K-12 school districts, industry, and nonprofits to address the central challenge of how to promote deep conceptual learning via rich socio-collaborative learning experiences for students. In this position, you will lead efforts to develop, enact, and study new participatory engagement models that enable students, teachers, parents, and community members to participate in the development and critical analysis of AI technologies for classrooms. You will also conduct fundamental research related to these efforts that will advance our understanding in related policy areas such as responsible innovation, ethics, and equity. This position warrants a motivated, creative individual who shares our commitment to promote equity through the development of learning environments that center the interests, hopes, and concerns of Black, Latinx, Native American, female and gender nonbinary, neurodiverse, and emerging multilingual students and their communities. This position provides an exciting opportunity to be involved with a multi-institution team working on the responsible and ethical integration of AI into classrooms.
