Apply to be a SERC Scholar

Thursday, September 14, 2023

Join a community of undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty to help advance the MIT Schwarzman College of Computing cross-cutting initiative on Social and Ethical Responsibilities of Computing.

What do SERC Scholars do?

  • Collaborate in multidisciplinary teams with members from across computing, data sciences, humanities, arts, and social sciences, led by a SERC postdoc.

  • Develop and pilot new SERC course materials in collaboration with postdocs and faculty.

  • Engage with external partners to advance AI in the public interest.

  • Conduct research in a new, exciting cross-disciplinary area.

SERC Scholars will have the opportunity to work on 1 of 5 projects, such as misinformation, surveillance, climate justice, trolling, and design justice. Undergraduates will be required to participate in one of these projects. Graduate students will have the option to join a project or work with faculty action groups. Each project will meet weekly for approximately one hour. SERC Scholars are required to attend these meetings.

Open to all MIT undergraduate and graduate students.

The deadline to apply is September 14, 2023.
