The Data Science Institute (DSI) at Brown University seeks an Academic Director to oversee a new online master’s degree program in Data Science: Policy, Governance & Society. This position will carry the title of Professor of the Practice of Data Science (rank to be determined by experience). It is a 12-month appointment, with an initial contract of 3 years, renewable for longer. The Academic Director will provide overall academic and intellectual leadership for the program, working with other DSI faculty, especially with faculty of DSI’s related but distinct in-person master’s program. The incumbent will also serve as instructor for one or more courses in the program. 

 The mission of Brown’s online ScM in Data Science: Policy, Governance & Society is to provide students with a strong foundation in the methods and algorithms of data science, through a study of relevant topics in mathematics, statistics and computer science, including machine learning, data mining, visualization, and data management, to meet the growing demands of this industry and become future leaders in the field. Through courses providing technical foundations for data science practice as well as  ethical, policy and governance considerations, the program will train students to address the growing concerns stemming from the lack of governance in a range of areas in which data, in particular “big data” and artificial intelligence, are affecting people’s lives worldwide. 


The ideal candidate will have teaching experience as well as some experience in program management. Industry experience is also desirable, along with the ability to manage relationships with public and private-sector entities. A graduate degree (PhD) is preferred. Experience with online education is a plus.
