Emory University’s Mathematics & Computer Science Department is leading an
initiative in Data Science to pioneer research and educational advances in
this multidisciplinary domain. This initiative builds upon current
strengths and recent growth in data-oriented topics within the Computer
Science & Informatics (CSI) program at Emory University (
http://csi.mathcs.emory.edu), with research concentrations in Data Science
and Biomedical Informatics. The CSI faculty maintain active,
interdisciplinary research programs, and have been recently recognized with
multiple best paper awards, NSF CAREER, NIH K01, A.P. Sloan Fellowship, and
other awards.

Applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level
are invited from exceptional candidates with outstanding research and
teaching records (or promise) in areas related to Data Exploration. Truly
eminent candidates may be considered for appointment at higher ranks,
subject to administrative approval. We are particularly interested in
applicants with expertise in interactive data exploration, broadly
construed, which includes data mining, analytics, visualization,
human-computer interaction, and summarization. Candidates with exceptional
strengths in other data-relevant areas will also be considered.

Courtesy appointments in Biomedical Informatics and
Biostatistics/Bioinformatics are available as appropriate.

We seek colleagues who can complement the current program strengths in data
mining, information retrieval, data privacy and security, machine learning,
natural language processing, medical informatics, neural computation, and
imaging informatics.

Applicants must have a PhD in Computer Science or a closely related area.
The successful candidate would join the Math & Computer Science department (
http://www.mathcs.emory.edu) and contribute to scholarship and teaching at
the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Applications comprising of a cover letter, CV, research and teaching
statements, and three to five letters of recommendation directly from
recommenders, should be submitted via Interfolio -
https://apply.interfolio.com/37659.  Informal inquiries about the position
are also invited by email to chair at mathcs.emory.edu.

Application screening starts December 1, 2016 and will continue until the
position is filled. Applications received up to 30 days after review begins
will be given full consideration.
