The Data Science Initiative (DSI) at Brown University is seeking applicants for a faculty position at the rank of lecturer, senior lecturer, or distinguished senior lecturer. The initial appointment would be for a 3-year period (renewable with potential for promotion and longer-term contracts). The position involves teaching four courses per year and providing administrative or advising support for our undergraduate Data Fluency certificate program or the Master's program in Data Science. We seek candidates who will contribute to our overall intellectual culture; lecturers are included in faculty meetings, can advise undergraduate research projects, and can participate in graduate research with the rest of the faculty. Lecturers with substantial research participation and supporting funds may be eligible for periodic course release. The department values teaching and educational innovation, and welcomes candidates interested in formally researching data-science education in the context of their teaching.
The DSI serves as a campus hub for research and education in data science. Engaging partners across campus and beyond, DSI facilitates and conducts both domain-driven and fundamental research in data science, educates the next generation of data scientists, and explores the impact of the data revolution on culture, society, and social justice. The DSI values diversity and inclusion as essential to achieving excellence.
In selecting candidates, we will consider quality of teaching, evidence of effective teaching, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and compatibility with the area needs and interests of the DSI, as well as potential for effective participation in DSI or university activities. For all applicants, we will consider potential for impact beyond Brown (through teaching, research, significant system building, outreach, or other professional activities, as appropriate for the candidate). Applicants must have a Ph.D. by the start of the position.
Applicants must submit a CV, a teaching statement, and a research statement (or a statement describing other significant professional activities beyond classroom instruction), and at least three letters of recommendation. Applications be received by January 2, 2020 will receive full consideration; applications received after this date may be reviewed until the position is filled.
Brown University is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic global community; as an EEO/AA employer, Brown considers applicants for employment without regard to, and does not discriminate on the basis of, gender, race, protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
