The University of Notre Dame’s Department of IT, Analytics, and Operations (ITAO) at the Mendoza College of Business announces a position as an open-rank professor in Business Analytics, contingent on final funding approval. Candidates must possess an earned doctorate or the strong prospect of earning a doctorate by Fall 2021 in Business Analytics or a closely related area such as Information Systems, Operations, Statistics, Computer Science, or Computational Social Sciences. Additionally, the University of Notre Dame, Lucy Family Institute for Data & Society offers a faculty affiliation opportunity for this position. 

Our ideal candidate has publication success at premier outlets, and a strong pipeline of interesting and rigorous research relevant to business applications. Preference will be given to individuals whose research complements the interests of our existing faculty. Candidates pushing the envelope in exciting boundary spanning areas at the intersection of business, computational social science, network science, human-centered artificial intelligence, experimentation methods, civic media, human dynamics, and social impact research are encouraged to apply. The ITAO department is home to a diversity of approaches and backgrounds making for a vibrant research environment, which results in frequent, compelling, and unique collaborative research projects among our faculty.

In addition, our ideal candidate has proven success in the classroom (or shows great promise) with an interest in teaching in areas related to Business Analytics, broadly defined. The ITAO Department offers two undergraduate majors (Business Analytics and Business Technology) and three Masters of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) programs (a one-year executive-style in Chicago, a two-year dual-degree MSBA/MBA, and a one-year pre-professional South Bend program). The Mendoza College of Business is home to a highly-regarded Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program, for which we offer concentrations in Business Analytics and Supply Chain & Operations Management.

The ITAO Department is an integral part of the University of Notre Dame’s interdisciplinary efforts to make an impact on scholarship and society through data analytics, artificial intelligence, and computationally-intensive research.  There are numerous collaborative opportunities afforded by the aforementioned Lucy Institute, and also the Center for Networked and Data Science, and the Technology Ethics Center. ITAO researchers enjoy generous allocations of resources from Notre Dame’s Center for Research Computing and the support of three full-time staff of Mendoza College of Business data scientists and a director of behavioral research who oversees the Mendoza Behavioral Lab.

The teaching load is 9 credit hours per year. Salary and research budget are highly competitive, with generous summer support based on research productivity.
