Department of Mathematics

Over the past decade, the College of Natural Sciences at CSU has invested in Data Science, yielding dramatic cross disciplinary research collaborations. This investment recently culminated in the creation of a new major – the Bachelor of Science in Data Science. To meet the demands of this new major, and to build upon the College’s successes in Data Science research, the University and College is planning a major systematic investment in Data Science including the development of MS and PhD degrees and the addition of at least six new faculty lines, two in each of the departments of Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics, over the next few years.

The Department of Mathematics at Colorado State University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in the area of Data Science.
