Research Assistant Professors - Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society
Research Assistant Professors Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society
The Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society at Cornell University announces a new program to recruit multiple candidates to be hired as Research Assistant Professors; these are 3-year non-tenure-track positions that are funded in part by the Center and in part by a cooperating unit at Cornell University, either at the Ithaca campus or at Cornell Tech in New York City. The first cohort recruited for this program will start in academic year 2020-2021.
This new Center aims to unify programs and curricula in data science with an initial emphasis on questions grounded in data that are generated by human activity, including computational social science (e.g., sociology and government), the economics/computer science interface, the aspects of digital agriculture in the production and management of agriculture, digital platforms supporting urban infrastructure (e.g., the sharing economy), and as a theme that is cross-cutting in many of these areas, the corresponding issues of privacy, security, and fairness. The areas highlighted are meant to serve only as illustrative; candidates for these Research Assistant Professorships are soughtfrom all areas of research that either advance the state of the art in data science, or extend the reach of data-driven research into novel application domains.
Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae (CV) and a research statement summarizing their accomplishments to date, as well as a diversity statement; they must also submit a two-page description of proposed research for the period to be spent at the Center, including a proposed primary Cornell faculty member to mentor the candidate (and potentially a secondary mentor to span both some relevant area from the application domain as well as someone from a core data science domain); two letters of recommendation and a reference letter of support from the Cornell faculty mentor(s). Candidates are expected to have completed their Ph.D. prior to the start of this position, and to have already done substantial research in areas relevant to the Center.
Applications should be submitted by February 15, 2020 for full consideration, but applications will continue to be reviewed on an ongoing basis until the positions are filled.
