Assistant Teaching Professor of Data Science

The Data to Knowledge (D2K) Lab, housed in the Department of Statistics at Rice University, located in Houston, TX, seeks applications for one teaching-track professor position with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2024. The D2K Lab is a center within the George R. Brown School of Engineering with a mission of providing students with immersive, experiential learning opportunities in data science.

The D2K Lab offers a series of curricular and co-curricular programs and events for students that connect them to real-world data science problems from partners and clients. The D2K Lab also works closely with other departments across the University, especially the School of Engineering, and all D2K Lab experiential learning courses are being embedded into existing or newly created academic programs and degrees.

Candidates with industry experience or strong applied data science research experience in the areas of health care and biomedical research, social science and public policy, energy, finance, or technology are especially encouraged to apply.
