We are particularly interested in candidates from diverse fields who can build a strong methodological research base and contribute impactful insights on the interplay between computing systems and our understanding of individuals and societal institutions.

Faculty duties will include teaching undergraduate and graduate level courses and conducting research. Applicants should possess a PhD in Computer Science, Data Science, Operations Management, Economics, Marketing or other related field by the beginning of employment. The successful applicant will have a shared appointment in both the Sloan School of Management and the Schwarzman College of Computing, in either the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS), or in the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS). 

Applications must include a cover letter, an up-to-date curriculum vita, three letters of recommendation, a personal statement describing research experience and aspirations, and a personal statement describing teaching aspirations and experience. Research papers should be included if available.
