Professor, Data Science

The University of Chicago invites applications for tenured faculty positions at the rank of Professor in the area of Data Science. Appointments may be made in either the Department of Computer Science or the Department of Statistics, jointly between Statistics and Computer Science, or jointly with another department in the University.

The University of Chicago is implementing 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 Data Science Institute is a collaboration among the Department of Computer Science, the Department of Statistics, and other units on campus. Topics of interest include artificial intelligence, machine learning, data visualization, fairness and data ethics, societal impact of data, data engineering, natural language processing, and high dimensional statistical inference, but we encourage applications from all researchers focused on developing the foundations and practice of Data Science as an emerging field. The Data Science Institute focuses on research that advances fundamental theories at the intersection of data science, artificial intelligence, statistics, and computing in the context of real world and domain-specific problems. The larger data science community at the University of Chicago includes the Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC), the Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Argonne National Laboratory.

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.
