Six to ten faculty will be recruited into tenure track positions over the next three years.

The successful candidate is expected to develop a competitive research program, attract external funding, and participate in graduate education. Major recent institutional investments have created an outstanding research data–driven infrastructure, exemplified by the Health Sciences Center for Computational Innovation, and the recent $50 million University investment to build the Goergen Institute for Data Science.
