The incumbent will work closely with the directors to further develop and realize the goals and plans for the initiative and also to coordinate the many varied activities of the initiative. The incumbent will proactively engage with researchers from all disciplines to identify potential collaboration opportunities in which the DSI and data science can play an important role. The incumbent will develop and manage these projects, hiring, and supervising technical staff and graduate and undergraduate student researchers as needed. The incumbent will also foster the data science community by growing and managing the Data Science Initiative affiliates that use the DSI space, organizing research events such as seminars and small conferences, and developing a series of ad hoc training workshops and tutorials on emerging data science technologies and methods. The incumbent will play a significant role in planning the long-term structure of data science services on campus. She/he will also develop working relationships with industry affiliates and other institutions, including national laboratories. The incumbent will strive in all activities to embody the UC Davis Principals of Community and to advance diversity. This is a very interdisciplinary position, and we encourage candidates from the humanities to apply. '''About the DSI:''' The Data Science Initiative (DSI) is a very broad campus-wide effort to advance data-driven discovery and analysis in all academic disciplines in this era of “Big Data.” The goals of the initiative are to enable qualitatively new data-driven research and develop methods and infrastructure for such research. Data Science spans the entire data pipeline, from identifying and accessing data, to cleaning, exploring and managing data, visualizing data, statistical and machine learning methods, dissemination of insights, publication and data curation. The initiative's focus extends beyond STEM fields and includes applications in all fields where data can help to answer important questions. The DSI has three primary missions: 1) supporting data-driven research in different domains, 2) advancing research in data science itself, and 3) training researchers in data science. The DSI serves as a hub for an emerging community of diverse researchers and students (intellectually & culturally) to come together to collaborate in multidisciplinary teams and to learn about the rapidly evolving state-of-the-art in data science tools, methods and applications. The DSI's staff provides short-term consulting services and also engages in longer-term research collaborations. The DSI works closely with other programs on campus such as the Data Management and Digital Scholarship Programs and collaborates with all disciplines. '''Qualifications: ''' *PhD in either a domain science with a significant data science component or in a Data Science field. *Experience in data science projects, specifically applying data science tools and techniques within a domain problem. *Experience building a new dynamic program with a clear, realistic vision and expectations. *Experience building, managing and sustaining a team of individuals of technical staff working on data-driven projects. *Experience working in collaborative multidisciplinary research teams with individuals of different cultures and academic backgrounds. *Evidence of continued learning of new data science technologies and methods. *Experience in independently managing projects and multiple priorities using effective problem-solving and analytic techniques, and technologies.
