Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Interdisciplinary Research in Data
Science: Global Biogeochemistry

The University of Rochester has made data science the centerpiece of its
5-year strategic plan, committing to 20 new faculty lines in diverse
areas, a new building, and the establishment of the Institute for Data
Science. We are currently seeking applicants for tenure track positions
in interdisciplinary research areas within data science. This
interdisciplinary search focuses on recruiting candidates who are
excited about engaging in collaborative research that connects advances
in computational approaches across disciplines, ranging from
engineering, to the life, social, and physical sciences. Global
Biogeochemistry is a focus area for one of this year’s interdisciplinary
searches. We seek candidates who integrate biotic (e.g. microbial),
chemical, and geological processes for an interdisciplinary research
focus on understanding global geochemical cycling processes and/or
global climate change. Applicants should have a strong computational
and/or modeling component to their research aimed at mining,
integrating, and/or interpreting large data sets. The rank of the
position is open.

Further information and instructions for this search can be found at:

The search will continue until the position is filled. For full
consideration, individuals should provide complete applications by
January 15, 2014. Applicants should hold a PhD and will be required to
supply a set of refereed scholarly publications, names of references,
and research and teaching statements. Applicants will be asked to select
a set of disciplines most relevant to their research area.
