The University of Wisconsin-Madison seeks to hire a faculty member with research and teaching interests in the computational and/or statistical aspects of data science, broadly defined. This position in Electrical and Computer Engineering or Industrial and Systems Engineering is part of a campus-wide cluster initiative to expand and broaden expertise in the fundamentals of data science at UW-Madison. Three faculty positions will be hired in the cluster, which will build a world-class core of interdisciplinary strength in the mathematical, statistical, and algorithmic foundations of data science. The cluster hiring initiative involves the Departments of Computer Sciences, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Mathematics, and Statistics. It is anticipated that successful candidates will develop strong collaborations with existing data science research programs at UW-Madison -- especially with the other faculty hired under this cluster program. 

Candidates will have a distinguished academic record, exceptional potential in establishing a world-class research program in computational and/or statistical aspects of data science, and a commitment to high-quality undergraduate and graduate instruction and mentoring.

Principle duties include: teaching undergraduate and graduate courses and contributing to curriculum updates and innovations; supervising graduate student research and mentoring graduate students; developing and directing a strong, extramurally funded research program; participating in departmental and university faculty governance; and contribution to professional and public service.
