Assistant Professor in Computational Social Science
Georgetown University: Main Campus: McCourt School of Public Policy

Location: Washington, DC
Open Date: Jul 28, 2021

The McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University invites applications for a tenure-line assistant professor in Computational Social Science. Large scale data and increasing computing power, coupled with rapid advances in data science tools create massive opportunities and challenges in the field of public policy.

We are seeking someone who will have skills and demonstrated research expertise in data science areas such as machine learning, text as data, spatial data, computation using large-scale data, networks and other topics on computational social science. We are open to the academic discipline, which could be computer science, economics, political science, public policy, statistics or a related field. We expect the applicant to have a Ph.D. by the time they start.

The person hired in this search will be expected to do research at the intersection of data science and public policy. The successful candidate's teaching will include courses for the Data Science for Public Policy program, a two-year MS degree program that trains students to use modern computing power to understand important issues in public policy.

The committee will begin reviewing materials on October 1, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
