The Department of Environmental Sciences (EVSC) and the School of Data Science (SDS) at the University of Virginia invite applicants for a full-time tenured position at the level of Associate or Full Professor in the area of Environmental Data Science, with rank commensurate to experience level. We seek applicants whose research and teaching address questions in environmental science using novel approaches to the data cycle to advance knowledge of environmental systems, and to solve problems of societal relevance. Approaches of interest include, but are not limited to, data acquisition, analytical workflows, and data-driven computational methods (e.g. machine-learning, statistical or simulation approaches). The ideal candidate is data-oriented, has a track record of open collaborative, cross-disciplinary work, and holds a PhD or equivalent in a relevant field. This position is open to all areas of the environmental sciences but will prioritize data science research and teaching in the hydrologic, atmospheric, or geoscience domains.
The successful candidate will be cross-appointed in Environmental Science and Data Science and is expected to develop an externally funded and internationally recognized research program, manage and mentor a diverse research group, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses. They will take a central role that bridges and leverages research strengths between both programs and will incorporate data science computation in the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Opportunities for collaboration/affiliation with other units in the University include the Environmental Resilience Institute and the Department of Engineering Systems and Environment. Environmental Resilience and Digital Technologies and Society have been named as two of the five priority initiatives in the new university Strategic Plan, emphasizing the importance of this collaboration.
