Assistant Research Professorship Program

Join Us

The centerpiece of this Center will be a pool of Assistant Research Professorships, in which there is a cohort of 3 hires per year, each with a 3-year appointment. As part of the Provost’s radical collaborations initiative, Cornell is investing in data science in support of building connections throughout the campus. By creating a rich ecosystem into which new hires can combine their burgeoning activity, Cornell can fully capitalize on its current leading role in this area.

There is an ongoing search to fill these positions, and further details for applying at Assistant Research Professor Application Info.
