The Computer Science (CS) Department and the Data Science Initiative (DSI) at Brown University invite applications under a focused cluster hiring plan for multiple tenure-track or tenured positions in data science. This year, we are seeking applications in the following sub-areas, broadly construed:

Machine learning, including but not limited to machine-learning theory and algorithms; machine learning for speech, vision, robotics and text; deep learning, reinforcement learning, and data mining. Data science systems, including but not limited to large-scale data management; systems, tools, and languages for machine learning, data analytics, and data mining. The successful candidates will be affiliated with the DSI and will have their tenure homes in the CS Department.

DSI is a university initiative to establish a hub for research and education in the foundational methodologies, domain applications, and societal impacts of data science. DSI brings together five core intellectual units: Applied Math, Biostatistics, the Center for Computational and Molecular Biology, Computer Science, and Mathematics, who are closely collaborating to create a rich, multi-disciplinary research and education environment around data science. Brown has committed to significant investment in this initiative as part of its Brown Together Capital Campaign, including several new faculty lines as well as significant investment in new space for the Initiative. Successful candidates are expected to actively participate in these ongoing efforts and engage in interdisciplinary research across these and other departments at Brown. The teaching load for these positions is one course per semester, typically an undergraduate course and a graduate course in a given year.

Brown CS offers a vibrant community for both teaching and research, with 28 tenured and tenure-track faculty members, two lecturers, two research faculty, two professors of the practice, and several adjunct and visiting faculty members. Department members frequently take advantage of Brown's interdisciplinary culture via collaborations with numerous other departments and centers, including Africana Studies, Applied Mathematics, Visual Art, Biology, Brain Science, Cognitive Linguistic and Psychological Sciences, Computational Molecular Biology, Computer Vision, Economics, Engineering, Mathematics, Medicine, the Physical Sciences, and Psychology, as well as the Rhode Island School of Design.

Brown University is located in Providence, RI, close to Narragansett Bay, an hour from Boston and about three hours from New York City. Providence has been consistently rated as among the Northeast's most livable cities and is home to diverse intellectual, artistic, and business communities.

QUALIFICATIONS We will consider applicants from all ranks. Qualifications for assistant professors include a Ph.D. in computer science or a closely related field (e.g., applied math, statistics) and strong research, mentoring, and teaching credentials. Junior applicants must have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree by the start of the position. Senior candidates should be acknowledged international leaders, with a distinctive record in scholarship and teaching in their respective sub-fields.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS Applicants should submit the following materials via https://apply.interfolio.com/46338: cover letter; current curriculum vitae; separate statements of research and teaching interests; and three letters of reference. Instead of reference letters, senior candidates should submit five names of references whom the search committee may contact. Applications will be considered until the position is filled but we strongly encourage the candidates to submit complete applications (including reference letters) by January 1, 2018 for full consideration.

We encourage applications from women, underrepresented minorities and those who can contribute, through their research, teaching or service, to the excellence, diversity and inclusivity of our academic community. We also encourage the candidates to report any relevant experience and plans in their teaching statements.
