The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Drew University invites applications for a 12-month open-rank tenure-track professor of Data Analytics, with a start date of May 23, 2022. The successful candidate will teach six course equivalents per year across the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms, including some evening classes. Roughly half of the teaching responsibilities will be in our Master of Science in Data Analytics program and half in our undergraduate program.  More information may be found on our website:


Candidates are expected to teach courses and mentor students at the undergraduate level and in our MS in Data Analytics program. Preference will be given to candidates with a comprehensive knowledge of data analytics, including implementation of data management plans for the collection, cleaning, and storage of real-world data, analyzing authentic big data sets to support data-driven decision-making, and communication of data-driven conclusions based on an analysis of real-world data to a non-technical audience. Ability to teach SQL and relational databases required.

The successful candidate will be prepared to teach most aspects of data analytics. We seek candidates who have breadth in the discipline and who are passionate about innovative teaching within a liberal arts context in small classes. We have an interest in candidates whose work spans disciplinary boundaries. Some specific areas of potential interest include biostatistics, epidemiology, business analytics, computational statistics, databases, and data visualization. Also required is the ability to oversee internships and to aid students as they create portfolios of their work. The successful candidate will teach five courses each academic year and will supervise internships and teach a related capstone course in the summer. In addition to excellent teaching, candidates will be expected to maintain an active program of scholarship, broadly defined, and to contribute to the university community through committee service, student advising, collaboration across disciplines, and leadership for data analytics at Drew.


A Ph.D. in statistics, computer science, data science, biostatistics, business analytics, or a related area of mathematical sciences is required.
