Position Description:    

Dr. Can Chen, a faculty member of the School of Data Science and Society at UNC Chapel Hill is seeking postdoctoral research assistants to join his research team in the field of data science. The research focuses on developing and applying artificial intelligence and dynamical systems techniques to solve problems in the field of data science. Dr. Chen’s research interests span a diverse range of fields, including control theory, network science, tensor algebra, numerical analysis, data science, machine learning, deep learning, hypergraph learning, data analysis, and computational biology.

In 2022, UNC Chapel Hill launched the School of Data Science and Society (SDSS), a new school devoted to data science teaching, research, scholarship, service, and creativity. The SDSS vision is to be a leader in shaping the field of data science through an interdisciplinary and rigorous grounding in theory and methods with a human centric approach to the entire data life cycle.

The mission of SDSS is to empower a diverse community of faculty conducting research in the fundamentals and/or the applications of data science. The school is training undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to be the next generation of data science leaders with the knowledge and skills to thrive in this data-driven world. The SDSS will serve the state, the nation, and the world through premier data science educational programs and innovative research directed to advancing the public good with human-centric and ethical applications.

The core elements of the SDSS include porous borders – leveraging our low-walled collaborative Carolina culture to solve major societal problems. Interdisciplinary research clusters that cross disciplines and school boundaries are a vital element of the school. The SDSS is focused on students and education – the emphasis is not just on data science majors but on all students becoming data literate. The school’s culture has an open and transparent structure, governance, and business model.
