The Data Science Program at William & Mary, a public university of the Commonwealth of Virginia, seeks applications for two tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor level in Data Science. Appointments will begin August 10, 2021. We are primarily interested in individuals with expertise in Big Data Mining, Network Analysis, or Data Visualization, but exceptional applicants from other areas of Data Science may also be considered.

 The applicant is expected to maintain a productive research program that inspires highly motivated graduate students (M.S and Ph.D level) and undergraduate students, and that has the potential to yield external funding.

 Successful applicants should have a broad knowledge of data analytics, with a strong interest in teaching to multidisciplinary, liberal arts audiences, including students in disciplines outside of traditional STEM areas. Teaching expectation is 2 courses per semester. Successful applicants must possess the skills to teach compelling courses in their area of expertise, as well as contribute to teaching standard undergraduate courses such as Introduction to Data Science and Machine Learning.

 Required Qualifications: Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in Data Science, Information Science, Computer Science, or a related field by the time of appointment (August 10, 2021).

 

Preferred Qualifications: Postdoctoral research experience is desirable, and previous experience in teaching and mentoring successful undergraduate and graduate research is a plus.  

 Application process: Applicants must apply online at https://jobs.wm.edu/postings/40324. Submit a curriculum vitae, a cover letter, a statement of research and teaching interests, a statement describing previous professional experience or future plans (or both) that demonstrate a commitment to diversity and inclusion. You will be prompted to submit online the names and email addresses of three references who will be contacted by the system with instructions for how to submit a letter of reference.

 For full consideration, submit application materials by the review date, February 15, 2021. Applications received after the review date will be considered if needed.

 William & Mary values diversity and invites applications from underrepresented groups who will enrich the research, teaching and service missions of the university. The university is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and encourages applications from women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities. William & Mary conducts background checks on applicants for employment.
