Job Description:

Job location: Charlottesville, VA Employment Type: Full-time Posted data: 2019-04-26 Req: R0005610 The University of Virginia (UVA) has announced plans to establish a School of Data Science, an effort made possible in part by the largest private gift in the institution's 200-year history. The School of Data Science - UVA's 12th school and the first established since 2007 - will position the University as a global leader in efforts to improve society through teaching and research based on the powerful, emerging field of data science. It builds on a foundation set in place at UVA by the Data Science Institute (DSI), a pan-University institute established in 2013 that grants graduate degrees and has a dual mission in education and research. The new School of Data Science proposes to ultimately offer both doctoral and undergraduate degree programs and certificate programs, helping to meet soaring demand for qualified data science professionals in a field that plays a key role in the global information-based economy. To realize the new School of Data Science vision, UVA seeks applicants for 12-month Open Rank General Faculty teaching track appointments in the area of data science related to education and policy. The DSI is committed to becoming a world leader in data science for the social good. To achieve this goal, we will recruit faculty at all levels who possess a diversity of life experiences. We especially encourage applications from individuals who are members of underrepresented groups and who have worked to support the broadening of student access to data science careers. Candidates are expected to develop and teach potentially both residential and online courses primarily for the Master of Science in Data Science program , but will also build and teach courses in data science for education and policy independently and jointly in the Curry School of Education and Human Development and the Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy. Candidates with experience and interest in policy analysis and educational analytics with backgrounds in areas related to data science such as: data mining and machine learning; data visualization; data integration and engineering; data management, acquisition and dissemination; and data ethics, law, policy and social implications are encouraged to apply. Currently teaching faculty spend the majority of their time teaching with a balance of effort dedicated to research and service responsibilities. Research at the intersection of data science and education and public policy will be an important part of the collaboration with the other schools. Initial applied research projects will focus on leveraging data science strategies to support individuals to complete postsecondary education and achieve better workforce outcomes, through close partnerships with public agencies and organizations. Service time includes roles in developing and building the new School of Data Science and commitments to help achieve student and team success. UVA is proud to have a strong culture of collaboration and collegiality and is committed to creating collaborative and diverse environments necessary to develop and deliver quality educational programs. Successful candidates will help build bridges and will be a valuable part of creating cross-disciplinary programs with Curry and Batten; collaborate with both University faculty and public agency partners on applied research projects; teach and advise students at the undergraduate and graduate levels; mentor capstone research projects and perform service to the institution and the profession, locally, nationally and internationally. A Ph.D. in a relevant field is required. A commitment to teaching excellence is essential, as is evidence of an explicit commitment to diversity and of advancing understanding and outcomes for underrepresented groups. Candidates with some experience teaching in an online format are preferred, however instructional design and related technical support will be provided to those interested in teaching online. Rank and compensation is contingent upon qualifications. Applicant review begins May 16, 2019. The position will remain open until filled. TO APPLY: Upload the following materials at https://uva.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/UVAJobs (or through Workday for internal applicants). Complete an application online and attach: CV Cover Letter Brief (1-2 page statement) addressing the following: Your philosophy and experience in teaching and mentoring How you have worked to contribute to equity and inclusion in your research, teaching and/or service. How your experience contributes to the DSI's core values of ethics, open data and collaboration.
