    Two posts: Established Professor in Data Science and Established Professor in Data Analytics

    Data Science Institute, National University of Ireland in Galway, Republic of Ireland

    Linked to our ambition and strategic research priority area of realising potential through data and enabling technologies, NUI Galway invites applications for two closely linked Established Professorships in our Data Science Institute (DSI) in the College of Science and Engineering.

    Data Science, including data analytics, is a thematic priority research area for the College of Science and Engineering. Through the DSI and our schools (especially the schools of Computer Science; Engineering; and Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics), as well as other Research Institutes and centres, NUI Galway currently holds a strong international reputation in specific research areas of Data Science and Data Analytics and in translating this research into strong teaching programmes. The concurrent recruitment of an Established Professor of Data Analytics and an Established Professor of Data Science is a strategic opportunity to further expand significantly this capability and expertise, open it up to new and emerging areas, and lead the continued growth of this research priority area in the University. Both of the Established Professorships are senior academic positions of key strategic importance.

    Specifically, the successful appointees will provide strategic research leadership to the DSI in the field of data analytics/data science, and each will serve as Director of the DSI for a specified term(s).
