William P. and Hazel B. White Center College Professor of the Ethics of New Weapons Technology

Location: Notre Dame, IN
Open Date: Oct 13, 2022

Description:Fairchild engineer Gordon Moore famously noted in 1965 that the pace of semiconductor power was increasing exponentially and was revolutionizing the semiconductor industry. Moore's Law generally applies to the increasingly rapid development of technology in the modern world, especially in the weapons and national security realm. What is less clear is whether our ethical and moral frameworks for using military force, formulated gradually over hundreds of years in a very different and less dynamic technological environment, are keeping pace with these revolutionary developments today.

The Department of Political Science (particularly it's Political Theory and International Relations subfields), the Notre Dame International Security Center, and the ND Technology Ethics Center propose a search for a senior scholar who combines substantive knowledge of and continuing interest in the development and empirical and theoretical analysis of militarily relevant technologies (broadly defined) with a deep understanding of the ethical dimensions (broadly construed) of technology, war, and statecraft to be named the William P. and Hazel B. White Center College Professor of the Ethics of New Weapons Technology. Given the intersection of this position and the work of the ND Tech Ethics Center and NDISC, with important elements of the Roman Catholic Intellectual Tradition, especially its just war tradition, we would especially welcome applications from candidates attracted to Notre Dame's Catholic mission.
