Candidates should have an earned doctorate in Mathematics, Statistics, Data Science, or a related field. ABD will be considered, as will a Master’s with considerable work experience in data science or data analytics. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are required.

The candidate should be comfortable with creative pedagogy, active and holistic learning, and online instruction.

The successful candidate will be expected to develop and maintain an active program of faculty-mentored student research and scholarship. Active membership in professional societies, professional service, student advising, faculty governance responsibilities, and chapel attendance are expected.
