Assistant Research Professorsand Postdoctoral Fellows
Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society 
Cornell University 


The Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society at Cornell University seeks to recruit multiple candidates to be hired as Assistant Research Professors and Postdoctoral Fellows; these are 3-year non-tenure-track positions that are funded in part by the Center and in part by a cooperating unit at Cornell University. The first cohort recruited for this program started in academic year 2021-2022.   


This new Center aims to unify programs and curricula in data science with an initial emphasis on questions grounded in data that are generated by human activity, including computational social science (e.g., sociology and government), the economics/computer science interface, the aspects of digital agriculture in the production and management of agriculture, digital platforms supporting urban infrastructure (e.g., the sharing economy), and as a theme that is cross-cutting in many of these areas, the corresponding issues of privacy, security, and fairness. The areas highlighted are meant to serve only as illustrative; candidates for these Assistant Research Professorships are sought from all areas of research that advance the state of the art in data science, extending the reach of data-driven research into novel application domains. 


Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae (CV) and research statement summarizing their accomplishments to date, as well as a diversity statement; they must also submit a two-page description of proposed research for the period to be spent at the Center, including a proposed primary and secondary faculty mentor at Cornell; these can be any Cornell faculty members, and collectively have expertise that span both some relevant area from an application domain as well as a core data science domain; two letters of recommendation and a letter of support from each Cornell faculty mentor. Applicants should contact the appropriate faculty directly in advance to ensure their support of their application.Faculty mentors can be either on the Ithaca campus or at Cornell Tech; however, appointments for applicants must be at least 50% in Ithaca, and will be split between the campuses (either 50/50 or 80/20) only if at least one of the mentors is at Cornell Tech.  Candidates are expected to have completed their Ph.D. prior to the start of this position, and to have already done substantial research in areas relevant to the Center.  For full consideration, applications should be completed by February 1, 2023. Offers will be made to accommodate a start date for either Fall or Spring 2024 semesters. 


Applications should be submitted on AJO at 


Please Note: We will only consider complete applications;  that includes identified Cornell mentors and their letters of recommendation.

The Center for Data Science for Enterprise & Society embraces diversity and seeks candidates who can contribute to a welcoming climate for students, staff and faculty of all races and genders. We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.
