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.
Focus areas for this year’s interdisciplinary search are:
- Fundamental Methods in Machine Learning, Network Science, and Statistics
- Computational Linguistics, Computer Vision, and Computational Models of Human
- Computational Biology and Computational Bioengineering
- Global Biogeochemistry
We are especially interested in candidates with background in computational linguistics with a strong grounding in linguistics, and encourage such candidates to apply. Those interested in this position are encouraged to contact Joyce McDonough at the contact email address below.
