Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed. ***


The University of Notre Dame established the Lucy Family Institute for Data and Society in 2020 with a distinctive mission to enable positive impact on society and individual lives through innovative domain-informed and data-driven methods and applications. The launching of the Institute in 2020 was immediately followed with recruitment of multiple faculty members at the interface of data and society across different departments, Colleges, and Schools. Building on this momentum, the University is launching this interdisciplinary campus-wide cluster search for multiple additional faculty positions to further contribute to the University’s data science aspirations. 

The goal of this search is to hire faculty members who are driven by interdisciplinary and convergent scholarship motivated by societal challenges; novel data science and artificial intelligence methods; and implementation science that translates innovation to societal outcomes. This requires a collection of expertise, a willingness to collaborate across disciplines, and an aspiration to make a translational societal impact. The collective pool of applicants will be evaluated to ensure the diversity of experience and expertise required for interdisciplinary team building is present. Scholars interested in this interdisciplinary interface with a desire to be part of a collegial and collaborative group of faculty colleagues are especially encouraged to apply. 

Applications will be screened by a search committee composed of data science faculty members from departments from across the University. Faculty members hired through this search will have a tenure home in a specific department or school; in some cases, the tenure home might be jointly shared across departments or schools. Candidates are encouraged to express their department / college / school of preference(s) in their application. This search is open rank. 

In addition to this campus-wide cluster search, we have several other ongoing faculty searches across colleges and schools, also supported by the Lucy Family Institute for Data and Society, in diverse areas such as computational social sciences (sociology and political science), data science, applied analytics, and data privacy. These collective searches and investments demonstrate the commitment of the University of Notre Dame toward data science innovations that advance the common good. 

The University of Notre Dame supports the needs of dual career couples and has a Dual Career Assistance Program in place to assist relocating spouses and partners with their job search. The University of Notre Dame is strongly committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion. 

The applicant must have a doctorate in a related area. We are especially interested in faculty candidates that have an ambitious research agenda and are driven by the desire to build new initiatives.
