NEW CLOSING DATE FOR THESE POSTS (FEB. 13)

Professor/Reader in Data Science (2 posts)

Departments of Statistics, Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Warwick, UK

Up to two enthusiastic individuals are now sought to be part of the Warwick involvement in the newly created Alan Turing Institute, of which Warwick is a founding partner (with Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford and UCL). The Turing Institute is the UK’s new national data science institute, headquartered at the British Library in London. The Institute’s mission is to undertake world-leading data science research at the intersection of computer science, mathematics, statistics and systems engineering, and to act as a magnet for leaders in academia and industry from around the world to engage with the UK in data science and its applications.
The creation of these posts reflects the strong commitment of the University of Warwick to invest in a coherent methodological approach to the fundamentals of data science and the challenges of complex data sets. The posts will be held either singly, or jointly, in the Department of Computer Science, Department of Statistics, and/or the Mathematics Institute, and are open at senior levels (Reader or full Professor).
You will have expertise regarding the current issues in data science and the drive to address them at a fundamental level, while forming part of a collaborative team of researchers across the mathematical sciences at Warwick and more widely within the Turing Institute. You will help shape research and teaching leadership in this fast-developing discipline. You will have an excellent publication record and proven ability to secure research funding.
This is an opportunity to join one, or more, of the world’s most prominent and most research-active departments, and to be part of the prestigious Turing Institute. It is expected that post-holders will spend at least 40% of their time conducting research at the Turing Institute, and their teaching and administration duties at the University of Warwick will reflect this.
The university has also recently created the Warwick Data Science Institute (WDSI), which coordinates world-class research activities in data science, and is strongly connected to high-quality education in the broad area of data science, ranging from undergraduate to PhD level.

Informal enquires can be addressed to any of the following:

Professor Graham Cormode ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ), Computer Science; Professor Colin Sparrow ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ), Mathematics; Professor Mark Steel ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ), Statistics; Professor Stephen Jarvis ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ), Computer Science, or any other senior member of the Departments involved.

Closing date: 13 February 2017.

It is expected that interviews will take place in March 2017.
Applicants are asked to include a research statement which outlines how their research (past and future) fits with the Turing Institute mission and aligns with research at Warwick. Please specify which role you are applying for, either Reader or Professor.
