IE University’s School of Human Sciences and Technology HST invites qualified applicants for full-time, tenure-track faculty positions in Data Science and Computer Science beginning September 2020 in Madrid. Relevant, high-impact research and knowledge creation is a critical part of the mission of the school, and we are currently seeking to build a team of foundational research faculty as part of the next phase of our expansion.

We are open to candidates from diverse academic backgrounds including, for example: computer science, data science, applied statistics, operations research, software engineering and mathematics.
In addition to candidates involved in fundamental/basic research in the aforementioned areas, we also elcome applicants whose research lies at the boundary of Computer Science and/or Data Science and specific domains, such as business (industrial operations, business analytics), health (biostatistics, bioinformatics, healthcare analytics, healthcare technology), financial services (algorithmic trading, financial engineering, fin-tech), energy and environmental science (systems modeling, climate analytics), and the public sector (smart cities, smart government).

Our faculty are expected to publish in peer-reviewed journals, present in international venues, teach courses at the Bachelor and/or Master level, and provide intellectual leadership within HST in their areas of expertise (and more broadly, across IE University). Salaries will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Applicants will have earned a Ph.D. from a recognized school in a relevant discipline. Candidates should have training and active research agendas that make contact with one or more core areas of Computer Science and/or Data Science such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, computational modeling, robotics and RPA, human-computer interaction, advanced data structures and algorithms, network and graph analytics, databases, and data engineering and architecture.

Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research and teaching statement and three confidential recommendation letters.
Please submit your application by March 10th, 2020 via Interfolio at
