Arts & Sciences Digital Transformation Hiring Initiative

Recruiting interdisciplinary expertise in digital, spatial, and data sciences

Under the leadership of Dean Feng Sheng Hu, Arts & Sciences has launched a large-scale hiring initiative aimed at bolstering capabilities in data analytics and digital technologies. Hu, dean of the Faculty of Arts & Sciences and the Lucille P. Markey Distinguished Professor, aims to hire new faculty members to help drive transformative change across the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. 

This new expertise will bring nimble, creative thinking and new approaches, unlocking novel avenues of investigation and transforming existing fields of study. We aim to recruit digital and data scientists with an appetite for convergent scholarship that crosses traditional academic boundaries, enriching research capabilities within departments, across the school, and throughout the university.
