Apply By:Open until filled
The University of Texas at Austin, College of Education, is seeking a faculty member in Data Science / Analytics to be appointed as an Associate / Full Professor with tenure. The College of Education seeks to serve as agents of change committed to transforming education and health research, practice, and policy to ensure the thriving of children, families, schools, and communities. We build upon individual, family, and community strengths in order to combat disparities in education and health and to promote social justice. We are committed to an intellectually diverse and inclusive working and learning environment and are seeking candidates whose research, teaching, and service have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and excellence.
As a College-wide search, this is a broad call for an accomplished scholar who will support these goals within one of our five departments: Curriculum and Instruction; Educational Leadership & Policy; Educational Psychology; Kinesiology and Health Education; Special Education. While the specific area of study is open, the successful candidate’s core scholarship should be quantitatively focused. The successful candidate’s record should reflect advanced experience with cutting-edge methodological approaches to the analysis of large and complex data sets in education and/or health, with experience in high-performance computing a plus. Examples of potential areas of methodological focus include integrating education and health system data to understand student learning and health outcomes; methods for validating causal inferences from educational and health data mining; artificial intelligence; learning analytics; and social networks analysis. Experience in applied research design and novel approaches to analyzing intervention data (e.g., adaptive design) is preferred. Ideally, the successful candidate’s scholarship would inform the translation of research to practice via the development of interventions in schools, communities, families, or clinics. Applicants should also have a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring with a focus on enhancing equity and inclusion in the field and in practice.
The College of Education promotes the shared values of equity, excellence, innovation, empowerment, and community focus, and endeavors to bridge research and practice. We view inclusiveness and excellence as interconnected in the work of our faculty. The College of Education is particularly interested in and values candidates who have experience working with diverse and underserved populations and address the interactions among our diverse identities. Candidates should show a demonstrated commitment to improving access and conditions in educational and health settings for children, adults, families, schools, and communities through our efforts to Reimagine Education: https://education.utexas.edu/about/office-dean/reimagine-education
