Environmental Data Science Faculty Cohort (Seven Positions)

James Madison University (JMU) invites applications for an exciting collaborative environmental data science cohort hire. The cohort will consist of seven tenure-track faculty at rank of assistant or associate professor who will work collaboratively across disciplines to develop curricula and research programs at the intersection of data science, climate science, and environmental analytics. One or more of the seven positions could be teacher-scholar postdoctoral appointments. Successful candidates will possess the expertise, creative ability, interdisciplinary problem-solving skills, and team-oriented work ethic to establish JMU as a home for environmental data science curricula and research. Given that many of the challenges facing the environment differentially affect particular populations of humans, a critical component of this cohort would be the integration of social justice into the curriculum and research initiatives.

Successful candidates will have primary appointments in an academic unit most aligned with their disciplinary focus, including, but not limited to, Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Geology and Environmental Science, Computer Science, Mathematics and Statistics, Physics and Astronomy, and the School for Integrated Sciences, with at least two of the appointments being in Mathematics and Statistics.
