Research Assistant Professors
Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society
Cornell University

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 2021-2022.

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 sought from 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.

Application review will begin on March 29, 2021, and continue until the position has been filled. For full consideration, applications should be completed by April 15, 2021. It is expected that offers will be made to accommodate start dates for both the Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters. Applications should be submitted on AJO at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/18275.

The Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society embraces diversity and seeks candidates who can contribute to a welcoming climate for students, staff and faculty of all races and genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.
