This appointment has the potential of being converted to a tenure-track position. Applicants are sought with specialties in all areas but especially in modern methods of data science and computational science.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Data Science, Computer Science, Computational Science, Statistics, Bio-statistics, Applied Mathematics or closely related fields from a regionally accredited institution.

Candidates must demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence at the undergraduate level, preferably in one of these fields: Data Science, Computer Science, Computational Science, or Informatics.

Candidates should demonstrate outstanding research potential and ability to attract external funding and promote undergraduate research.

The finalist will be required to successfully complete a background check.
