University of California, Berkeley
Deadline: March 1, 2019 and open until filled

The University of California, Berkeley, invites nominations, inquiries and applications for the inaugural position of Associate Provost of the Division of Data Science and Information and Dean of the School of Information.

Data science is rapidly transforming society and the academy. In response, Berkeley has established programs in data science that span the campus, and is now looking for an Associate Provost to lead these efforts and to ensure that Berkeley’s engagement with data science reflects our values of excellence and inclusion and enhances our mission of serving the public through the creation and sharing of knowledge. As an institutional vehicle for moving forward in data science, Berkeley has created a new division, provisionally entitled the Division of Data Science and Information, which will be built on the disciplines of computation and statistics, their application across fields, and the exploration of their human, social, political, artistic, and scientific implications.

The Associate Provost will serve as the leader of this new division, and as Dean of the School of Information. Among the roles envisioned for this new position are fostering data science across the campus broadly and supporting interdisciplinary synergies within this new division. There is both a pedagogical mission and a research imperative to data science.
