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 program at Emory University (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 NSF CAREER, NIH K01, A.P. Sloan Fellowship, and DARPA CSSG 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.

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 (www.mathcs.emory.edu) and contribute to scholarship and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Courtesy appointments in Biomedical Informatics and Biostatistics/Bioinformatics are available as appropriate.
