Open Rank Professor in Marine or Atmospheric Science with Data Science Experience
The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) and the Institute for Data Science and Computing (IDSC) at the University of Miami are soliciting applications for tenured or tenure-track faculty position in any of the five RSMAS departments: Atmospheric Science, Environmental Science and Policy, Marine Biology and Ecology, Marine Geosciences, and Ocean Sciences. Applications are sought from scientists who leverage large data sets, statistical learning techniques, machine learning, and data science to advance knowledge in the Earth System or any one of its components: oceans, atmosphere, geology, biota, and human–environment interactions. The two positions open now are part of an intended cluster hire seeking to fill five data science positions in each of the five RSMAS departments in the next three years, to infuse data science into research efforts and instructional programs.
The successful applicants will hold joint appointments in one of the RSMAS departments and in IDSC. They are expected to teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, mentor students, and maintain an active research program. The successful candidate for a tenured faculty position should have a record of internationally recognized scholarly accomplishments, teaching experience, and a sustained externally funded research program, while successful applicants at the assistant or associate professor level must demonstrate potential to develop an externally funded research program of international reputation. Applicants are expected to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching, mentorship, service and the promotion of diversity, equity and inclusion. The candidates are expected to participate in collaborative and interdisciplinary research and to contribute to IDSC’s core mission of fostering inter-disciplinary and data-intensive research across the University of Miami.
To be eligible, candidates must hold a Ph.D. or terminal degree with a focus on data science in their field by the appointment start date. Applications will be considered at all ranks. Review of applications will begin January 15, 2022. Each appointment is expected to start as soon as feasible. The application material can be submitted via the UM Careers website and should include:
- Letter of interest that describes your anticipated contributions to scholarship, teaching, and service in the RSMAS (suggested limit of 2 pages)
- Current CV
- Research statement (2 pages)
- Teaching statement (2 pages)
- A statement of commitments and contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion (1 page)
- ·The names of three colleagues who can provide us with a reference
