Assistant Professor/Associate Professor/Professor, Data Science

The University of Chicago: Physical Sciences Division: Departments of Computer Science and Statistics

The University of Chicago invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the rank of Assistant Professor, and tenured faculty positions at the ranks of Associate Professor and Professor in the area of Data Science. The University of Chicago is initiating an ambitious plan for research and education in Data Science including new academic programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels and new cross-disciplinary research programs. The initiative is a collaboration among the Department of Computer Science, the Department of Statistics, and other units on campus. The search is open with respect to subfield, but we encourage applications from researchers focused on developing the theory and practice of Data Science as an emerging field. Appointments may be made in either department, jointly between Statistics and Computer Science, or jointly with another department in the University.

Members of the faculty are expected to lead research programs that will produce significant contributions to a field, and teach and mentor at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Data Science initiative focuses on research that advances fundamental theories at the intersection of data science, artificial intelligence, and computing in the context of real world and domain specific problems.

The Departments of Computer Science (cs.uchicago.edu) and Statistics (stat.uchicago.edu) are home to a diverse community of researchers focused on advancing the foundations of statistics and computing, and driving their most advanced applications. The larger data science community at the University of Chicago includes the Center for Data and Applied Computing, the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC), the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, the Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation and Argonne National Laboratory.

Completion of all requirements for a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Statistics, or a related field is required at the time of appointment. Candidates for Associate Professor and Professor positions must have evidence of leadership in their field and successful independent research.
