Northwestern Data Science Initiative

Wherever you look, there is talk of the revolution being brought about by "Big Data." But is Big Data just a fad, as its critics contend, or is there something at its core that is here to stay with us? - Luis Amaral

November 2016 - Data Science Scholars

We are looking to recruit 4 to 6 Data Science Scholars who will join a university-wide initiative advancing Data Science throughout Northwestern, across a number of research areas spanning the physical, chemical, biomedical, behavioral, social, economic, information, and communication sciences. Scholars will have joint-appointments with the Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO) – which coordinates the program – and another Research Center matching their area of expertise. Scholars will be appointed to two-year terms (potentially renewable for a third year). Scholars will receive a competitive stipend and benefits package, and an individual research budget. Starting date is flexible.

The aim of the program is to offer a unique opportunity to expand the Scholars’ domain-focused research portfolio, and simultaneously establish their reputation as leaders in the exploding field of Data Science and Analytics. Applications received by December 15, 2016 will receive full consideration. Later applications will be considered until all positions are filled.
