The Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia is still accepting applications for two Hobby postdoctoral research associates. Please apply no later than June 10, 2015.

This is a new program at U.Va. These postdoctoral positions are not attached to a specific research grant and will have considerable autonomy, while still having close mentoring from faculty members.

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia invites applicants for two Hobby postdoctoral research associate positions to contribute to research and education in data science, computational science, and other aspects of “Big Data.” The Department is entering an exciting phase of significant growth, especially in areas related to these topics.

Successful applicants will become part of an exciting cross-disciplinary research group spanning traditional statistical and computer science research modes. Postdoctoral research associates will benefit from close relationships with faculty in U.Va.’s Data Science Institute, as well as the opportunity to expand their professional networks and travel to conferences and workshops. In order to give the postdoctoral associates experience that helps them prepare for faculty careers, the postdocs will be expected to teach one course per semester in an area related to data and computational sciences, and help advise an interdisciplinary group of graduate students.
