The Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) has an established and growing research profile in the wide and interdisciplinary field of data-related research with a growing number of funded research projects and sustained contributions to initiatives both internal such as Warwick Data and national such as the Alan Turing Institute. We are also seeking to develop our MSc in Big Data and Digital Futures.
To strengthen further our research profile in this rapidly changing field and to contribute to this Masters programme we are interested in applications from scholars working with interdisciplinary approaches to data science and data studies, including (but not restricted to): artificial intelligence, machine learning, human-data interaction, critical data studies, computational social science, quantitative social research, statistics, digital methods and science and technology studies. You will have a promising or established track record of internationally recognized interdisciplinary research and experience in the design and delivery of interdisciplinary teaching. You will be be enthusiastic about teaching students from a wide variety of backgrounds in arts and humanities, sciences, social sciences and computer science and be able to contribute to teaching on one or more of the following core modules on the MSc in Big Data and Digital Futures: Big Data Research; Data Science Across Disciplines; and Scaling Data and Societies, as well as being able to contribute to and broaden the portfolio of option modules that we offer, which includes, for example, Interdisciplinary Approaches to Machine Learning. Some experience with programming in interpreted/interactive languages like Python and R is preferred.
You will have an interest in one or more of our research themes, as well as the interest, capability and motivation to develop your own research profile and apply for research funding from a wide variety of funding bodies. See, for example, some of our past and current projects. You will be able to play a significant role in the development of teaching programmes in the Centre as well as attracting and supervising PhD students.
We are currently inviting applications to two Assistant Professor positions, this one and one in Data Visualisation. If you are interested in applying for both you may either make two applications or state in one application that you are applying for both and you will be considered for both. Applications for only one are of course very welcome.
Interview Date: TBC.
