Bryn Mawr College invites applications for a Director of its new Data Science Program with the experience and vision to develop this initiative to begin on August 1, 2021. We seek to hire an accomplished scholar-teacher, at the level of Advanced Associate or Full Professor, with a deep and innovative background in the humanities or social sciences that is representative of the cross-disciplinary nature of Data Science. This individual will join and lead an existing group of faculty and staff to build a Data Science program within our liberal arts curriculum. The new Director will support faculty and student achievement in data-driven research and pedagogy, provide administrative leadership by guiding curricular development and College initiatives, and coordinate and collaborate with key constituents across campus. The Director will have a reduced teaching load to support these program development efforts. Candidates for the position must hold a Ph.D. in a humanities or social sciences discipline and have significant experience in data science as applied to their discipline. The successful candidate will also have a strong record of commitment to teaching excellence.
