Assistant Professor – Infrastructure and Data Science
Posted: 9/15/2018 (Employment)
The Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, invites applications for a tenure-track appointment to the faculty at the Assistant Professor rank, with an expected start date of July 1, 2019.
We seek applications from intellectually rigorous and exciting scholars who focus on public policy and who can teach innovative courses to our diverse student body. We are especially interested in candidates who are trying to address infrastructure-related policy problems (including transportation, housing, communications, energy, water, cities, and health care) and who will engage with University-wide data science efforts.
The Goldman School encourages applications from individuals of any scholarly discipline whose research focuses on these questions, including those in public policy, political science, economics, statistics, sociology, civil engineering, urban affairs, management, or demography, or data scientists with roots in computer science, schools of information, and other fields. The Goldman School is interested in candidates who will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their research, teaching, and service. Preference will be given to scholars who have demonstrated the potential to make significant research contributions and who have a clear interest in teaching in the core of the School’s Masters in Public Policy professional program. Public-sector experience is also desirable.
