The Questrom School of Business at Boston University anticipates hiring a tenured faculty member at the rank of associate or full professor. Candidates should have an established reputation as an empirical data scientist. Pending Provost budgetary approval, the anticipated start date for this position is July 1, 2020.
The Questrom School of Business is building a strong group of faculty with expertise in all aspects of data science and analytics. Data Science has become a focal area for the entire University, with support at the Presidential level for a new Data Sciences Institute. Multiple recent hires at Questrom represent a strategic focus for the School and are intended to fuel cross-departmental program and research initiatives in analytics and data science. Candidates with a focus on health analytics or on digital innovation and platforms will have an edge in the hiring process.
Successful candidates will likely have a disciplinary association with Information Systems but could also have an interest in Marketing, Operations & Technology Management or Business Economics. Foundational training in these core business disciplines or in statistics, computer science, psychology or policy is welcome. A PhD in one of these areas is essential to signal a deep understanding of the power of analytics and experimentation using large data sets. Experience as a practicing data scientist working with companies is a plus.
We seek outstanding candidates who would be comfortable in, stimulated by, and engaged with the vibrant cross-disciplinary community that is data science. Prospective candidates must have demonstrated the ability to produce original and innovative scholarly work of the highest possible quality with impact in the top academic journals. Special consideration will be given to applicants who have demonstrated intellectual and institutional leadership, successful mentoring of doctoral students (as relevant for tenure track), strong teaching at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and evidence of curricular leadership. Candidates will be expected to teach a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in analytics and contribute to cross-disciplinary curriculum development activities. Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
Interested candidates are encouraged to send application details to Dawn DeRossette email@example.com and include the following:
Applications will be accepted until December 15, 2019 but will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as they arrive. We will begin interviewing in early September for a July 1, 2020 start.
