The University of Georgia is recruiting 50 tenure-track faculty members with expertise in applying data science and artificial intelligence to a range of fields.
Rather than being housed exclusively in a single department, the majority of UGA’s newly recruited faculty will focus on the fusion of data science and AI in cross-cutting areas such as infectious diseases, integrative precision agriculture, ethics, cybersecurity, resilient communities, and the environment.
The Presidential Interdisciplinary Faculty Hiring Initiative in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence is recruiting a total of 50 faculty members over the next two years in eight interdisciplinary clusters:
- Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, and the Dynamics of Infectious Diseases
- Environmental Artificial Intelligence
- Ethics, Data, and AI
- Precision One Health Initiative
- Secure AI Systems for Biomedical Applications
- Integrative Precision Agriculture Center of Excellence
- Machine Learning Applications in Cyber-Physical Systems Security
- Resilient Infrastructure for Sustainability and Equity
