The Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI invites applications for a tenure-track assistant/associate professor position in data science. The appointment will begin August 1, 2022 in the Department of Human-Centered Computing at the Indianapolis campus. Candidates must demonstrate an outstanding scholarly record of research, exhibited by high-impact peer-reviewed publications and a forward-looking, vigorous research agenda that will secure competitive, external funding as Principal Investigator (PI).

An exceptional researcher in data science is sought to join our fast-growing department and data science graduate programs. Research expertise in any promising area of data science will be considered including, but not exclusively, data mining, deep learning, statistical machine learning, descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics, cloud computing, distributed databases, data visualization, or other areas involving the collection, organization, management, and extraction of knowledge from massive, complex, heterogeneous datasets. Data may include text, images, video, sensor and instrument data, clickstream data, social media interactions, neuroimaging data, genomics, health data, and so on. Additional AI-ML application areas of interest would be in AI and fairness/bias detection in health, education, and wage disparities; computational foundations of information/data ethics and policy.

As the state's premier urban research institution, IUPUI is committed to being a welcoming campus community that reflects and enacts the values of diversity, equity and inclusion that inform academic excellence. We seek candidates who will not only enhance our representational diversity but whose research, teaching, and community engagement efforts contribute to diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty. IUPUI condemns racism in all its forms and has taken an anti-racist stance that moves beyond mere statements to interrogating its policies, procedures, and practices. We hope to identify individuals who will assist in our mission to dismantle racism so that everyone has the opportunity to succeed at IUPUI.
Fostering an inclusive environment makes us stronger. The IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI draws on the strengths of a diverse community of students, faculty and staff to enrich the educational experience, broaden participation in computing, and meet the needs of emerging technology. The SoIC is committed to actively recruiting and retaining students, faculty and staff from all backgrounds and cultures to join the next generation of innovators. We welcome what every individual brings to our learning environment--socially, geographically, and in thought and experience.

Underrepresented minorities and women are strongly encouraged to apply!
