UVA Associate or Full Professor in Environmental Science and the School of Data Science
The University of Virgina is searching for an associate/full professor level with research and teaching interests in environmental data science. The position is cross appointed between Environmental Science and the new School of Data Science at UVA.
The Department of Environmental Sciences (EVSC) and the School of Data Science (SDS) at the University of Virginia invite applicants for a full-time tenured position at the level of Associate or Full Professor in the area of Environmental Data Science, with rank commensurate to experience level. We seek applicants whose research and teaching address questions in environmental science using novel approaches to the data cycle to advance knowledge of environmental systems, and to solve problems of societal relevance. Approaches of interest include, but are not limited to, data acquisition, analytical workflows, and data-driven computational methods (e.g. machine-learning, statistical or simulation approaches). The ideal candidate is data-oriented, has a track record of open collaborative, cross-disciplinary work, and holds a PhD or equivalent in a relevant field. This position is open to all areas of the environmental sciences but will prioritize data science research and teaching in the hydrologic, atmospheric, or geoscience domains.
Review of applications will start November 1, 2020, but the position will remain open until filled.
