Position description

The University of California, San Diego invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Data Science and Public Policy (primary appointment at the Halicioglu Data Science Institute with joint appointment in the School of Global Policy and Strategy). The appointment will be at the Assistant Professor level, and we welcome applications from advanced assistant professors.

Economics, Political Science, and Public Policy are all seeing rapid advancement in the ability to understand human behavior in new ways through the use of data. We seek faculty applicants who are experts in data science, economics, political science, or public policy. Faculty candidates should demonstrate interest and contributions in both: (1) an aspect of data science vital to the design or implementation of public policy, including machine learning, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, network analysis, data privacy and security, or algorithmic fairness; and (2) a policy domain of long-term priority, including public health, public infrastructure (e.g., transportation, housing, smart cities), movement and settlement of peoples (e.g., migration, refugees, border issues), fairness and discrimination (e.g., in employment, housing, or criminal justice), international trade and finance, climate and energy policy, or defense and security policy.

The successful appointee will be expected to teach graduate and undergraduate students at HDSI and GPS, with teaching load for each unit commensurate with the appointment. Candidates are expected to establish a vigorous program of high-quality research that focuses on innovations in Data Science and Public Policy.
