We believe the work of all of our contributors – staff, researchers, faculty, students, alumni, on- and off-Grounds partners, and community members – are what make us an innovative, agile, and great place to work. — Dr. Phil Bourne, Director, UVA Data Science Institute

The University of Virginia (UVA) has announced plans to establish a School of Data Science, an effort made possible in part by the largest private gift in the institution’s 200-year history.  The proposed School of Data Science – UVA’s 12th school and the first established since 2007 – will position the University as a global leader in efforts to improve society through teaching and research based on the powerful, emerging field of data science. 

The proposed School will build on a foundation set in place at UVA by the Data Science Institute (DSI), a pan-University institute driven by a dedicated, enthusiastic team that values collaboration, openness and transparency, diversity and inclusivity, and responsible, ethical work.

We are looking for people who are excited to create a forward-thinking community with a diversity of perspectives, backgrounds, and ideas, and who are dedicated to furthering data science education, research, and engagement. If you thrive in a startup atmosphere – where helpfulness, hard work and enthusiasm are major contributors to success – and are excited to help build a new kind of School, we encourage you to apply.
