Job Info


The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Connecticut (UCONN) seeks applications for a non-tenure track Assistant Research Professor position with expertise in Data Science. The position has a preferred start date of August 23, 2022 and is based in Stamford, Connecticut. Stamford and its surrounding region has among the highest density of data science/analytics jobs and companies in the United States.

The University of Connecticut, with additional funding from the state, has embarked on a unique and innovative multi-year data science initiative in Stamford (see https://stamforddatascience.com). The initiative itself is comprised of three primary components: 1) the establishment of a data science technology incubator built as an extension of UConn's technology incubation program (TIP), the largest and most successful tech incubator in Connecticut, 2) the creation of the Stamford Startup Studio, a yearlong entrepreneurial co-op experience for extremely motivated and talented undergraduates, and 3) a cluster hire of five cutting-edge data science faculty researchers spanning four colleges/schools at UConn. The components of the initiative will integrate tightly with students and startups alongside top data science researchers, thus building a foundation to support both the mission of the institution and the continued economic development of the state. The position emphasizes research and application-no teaching is required-and is situated in a newly updated Class A office building across the street from the UConn Stamford campus (co-located with UConn's data science incubator).

Suitable areas of research include, but are not limited to:

Statistics and Big Data analytics, Bioinformatics, Economics, Geosciences, Geospatial sciences, Psychology, Sociology or related fields.

Review of candidates will begin January 15, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
