Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Interdisciplinary Research in Data Science
The University of Rochester has made data science the centerpiece of its 5-year strategic plan, committing to 20 new faculty lines in diverse areas, a new building, and the establishment of the Institute for Data Science. We are currently seeking applicants for tenure track positions in interdisciplinary research areas within data science. This search complements department-specific searches in data science currently underway. The interdisciplinary search focuses on recruiting candidates who are excited about engaging in collaborative research that connects advances in computational models and methods to other fields of engineering or life, social, or physical sciences. Successful candidates will receive a primary appointment in one of the departments supporting the search, and a secondary appointment in at least one other department. Departments supporting this search are Biomedical Engineering, Biology, Biostatistics & Computational Biology, Brain & Cognitive Sciences, Chemistry, Computer and Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Economics, Linguistics, Mathematics, Physics & Astronomy, and Political Science. Fundamental Methods in Network Science, Statistics, and Machine Learning is one of the four focus areas of this year’s interdisciplinary searches. We are particularly interested in applicants working on fundamental methods to analyze complex relational data using network and other statistical models, and their broad application to problems in the social and natural sciences. Instructions for applying for this search appear at: http://www.rochester.edu/rocdata/recruit/interdisciplinary. Applicants should hold a PhD and will be required to supply a set of refereed scholarly publications, names of references, and research and teaching statements. Review of applications at any rank will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. For full consideration, applications should be received by January 15th, 2014. The University of Rochester has a strong commitment to diversity and actively encourages applications from candidates from groups underrepresented in higher education. The University is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
