Two faculty positions, Data Science for Social Equity, University of Oregon


The Department of Geography at the University of Oregon invites applications for two tenure-track positions at the ranks of Assistant and Associate Professor in the area of Data Science for Social Equity, to begin in fall 2018. We seek candidates who specialize in spatial data science, including (but not limited to) big data, spatial data visualization, spatial cyberinfrastructure, and/or geospatial technologies, and who advance research that makes positive impacts toward resolving urgent societal challenges.

Specifically, we seek scholars who harness data-driven science to analyze and advance social equity, apply research results to generate tangible products, applications, and/or other outcomes that address grand societal challenges, such as accessibility, health and wellbeing, food security, technology access and the digital divide, environmental problems, or other social and spatial disparities.

These positions are part of presidential initiative to establish excellence in data science at the University of Oregon (see https://provost.uoregon.edu/data-science), oriented toward solving significant problems in science and society.  As part of this initiative, the university is building a cross-disciplinary data science program which can be a curricular and research program for data science writ large, and the university’s recently launched High Performance Computing Research Core Facility is available to help serve computing needs.  There will also be opportunity to become involved with the university’s Knight Campus for Accelerating Impact.

 

We are a diverse and growing department with strengths in biophysical geography, human geography, environmental studies, and spatial data science. Successful candidates will join the Spatial Computation, Cognition, and Complexity (S3C) Lab, and will develop a collaborative research program with faculty from the S3C Lab, Geography, and/or other units on campus. Scholars will recruit, teach, and mentor students in the new Spatial Data Science and Technology undergraduate major and Geography undergraduate and graduate majors.

 

Minimum Requirements: Ph.D. in Geography or related field by time of appointment; evidence of (or potential for) a strong research program and publication record in the area of spatial data science for social equity; an established track record of (or potential for) excellence in teaching courses in spatial data science at the undergraduate and graduate levels; and experience in (or potential for) mentoring graduate students. Salary is competitive.

Candidates should apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9772 by submitting a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a research and teaching statement, and contact details (name, affiliation, mailing address, email) of three references. Application materials must be submitted by November 1, 2017, or until the post has been filled.

The University of Oregon is committed to creating a more inclusive and diverse institution, and seeks candidates with demonstrated potential to contribute positively to its diverse community. Successful candidates will support and enhance a diverse learning and working environment, and applicants should include in their cover letter information about how they will further this goal. We strongly encourage applications from women faculty, faculty of color, and faculty with disabilities.

The University of Oregon is one of only two Pacific Northwest members of the Association of American Universities and holds the distinction of a “very high research activity” ranking in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. Located in Eugene, the UO enrolls more than 20,000 undergraduate and 3,600 graduate students, representing all 50 states and nearly 100 countries. The University of Oregon is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution committed to cultural diversity and compliance with the ADA. The University encourages all qualified individuals to apply, and does not discriminate on the basis of any protected status, including veteran and disability status.
