    New methods in advanced computing and AI are increasingly contributing to revolutionary tools in scientific research and discovery. However, the current adoption of AI in scientific and engineering research is slow, unevenly distributed, and inconsistent. Better use of AI in science can help researchers ask better questions and find quicker and deeper answers.


    The Eric and Wendy Schmidt AI in Science Postdoctoral Fellowship will seek to change how science is done by accelerating the incorporation of AI techniques into the natural sciences, engineering, and mathematical science (STEM), providing access to AI tools and training to the sharpest minds on the frontlines of scientific innovation. The Fellowship adds to Schmidt Futures’ efforts of more than $400M and counting to support talent that is developing and using AI in innovative ways to make the world better. 


    The Fellowship program will initially support approximately 160 postdoctoral Fellows across nine universities around the world each year, to learn and apply AI methods to their research. Each university site will select a new cohort, comprised of up to 20 Fellows, annually for up to six years. Universities joining the program will provide advanced AI training, funded research support, and professional development opportunities –– both to shape research in their own departments and to help build a global network of AI-trained scientists. 


    Expanding the Schmidt Futures portfolio of AI programs like AI2050AI Accelerator, and more, this Fellowship will broaden the range of human capabilities by supporting new approaches to scientific discovery and innovation through the rapid combination of AI methods towards STEM research. The Fellowship aims to create breakthroughs across a range of scientific fields –– from creating new drugs to fight disease, to detecting some of the faintest objects in the solar system, to helping produce and store energy more efficiently.

    In its inaugural year, the program is supporting fellows at nine universities across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Singapore, with plans to expand to additional countries in the future. 


    Schmidt Futures is interested in exploring partnerships for this Fellowship program with Universities in regions such as Latin America, Australia, Europe, Africa or India.

    The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University has an opening for a Teaching Faculty member. Teaching track faculty are responsible for teaching courses and enjoy the flexibility and opportunity to engage in broader aspects of our educational programs, including to pursue research, advise students, design, or participate in outreach programs for students and teachers, create new courses, explore and experiment with new teaching methodologies, write course materials including books and online resources or other related interests. Teaching is usually in our core courses alongside other faculty, providing critical insight on pedagogy and maintaining overall learning outcomes, but some teaching track faculty also teach in specialized areas.

    The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University was established in 1979 to conduct basic and applied research in robotics technologies relevant to industrial and societal tasks. Seeking to combine the practical and the theoretical, the Robotics Institute has diversified its efforts and approaches to robotics science while retaining its original goal of realizing the potential of the robotics field.

    Candidates should have a Ph.D. with deep expertise in robotics and a background of demonstrated excellence and dedication to teaching. Candidates must be prepared to teach extensive lecture courses at the advanced undergraduate and introductory/intermediate graduate-level and also be prepared to work with the existing faculty of the department to establish, improve, and standardize the curriculum.

    We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated track record in mentoring and nurturing female and underrepresented minority students.  Applicants looking for a primarily research-based position or those who are looking to teach solely advanced courses are not a good fit for this position. Positions include Assistant Teaching Professor, Associate Teaching Professor, Teaching Professor.

    The Robust Field Autonomy Lab ( at Stevens Institute of Technology is seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to contribute to two DoD-sponsored projects related to robot learning. The first project considers the use of graph neural networks and deep reinforcement learning to permit a team of GPS-denied mobile robots to safely and rapidly navigate known environments and explore unknown environments under localization uncertainty. The second project considers the use of distributional reinforcement learning to permit autonomous vehicles to effectively manage aleatoric uncertainty in complex, stochastic environments. 

    The initial term of appointment is one year, with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance and availability of funding. Due to the requirements of the sponsor, candidates must be U.S. citizens. Prospective candidates should hold a PhD in a relevant engineering discipline. 

    Interested candidates should send a CV and a brief (< 500 words) statement of their research background and interests to Brendan Englot ( Questions about the position are also welcome. Review of applications will start immediately, with the goal of identifying a candidate who can begin contributing to the research during the Fall 2022 semester.
