The Data Science Institute brings together researchers working in the broad field of data science across faculties and research groups at Hasselt University. The main objective is to facilitate the data-driven future. The institute performs research across the full spectrum from fundamental to applied; its impact ranges from scientific excellence to civic relevance. The institute's success is measured in achieving this goal by continuous growth in impact and reputation.
Though emphasis is on research and consultancy in data science, you will have educational responsibilities for postgraduate courses in the domain of data science and in various programmes (bachelor/masters) at Hasselt University.
The UHasselt Data Science Institute (DSI@UHasselt) fosters collaboration among data science experts across disciplines towards high impact, on both a local and global level, in research and education, and on society. It is expected that you establish high impact research lines in data management and data wrangling (both on a fundamental and applied level) that are aligned with the research mission of DSI. You will contribute to the ambition of DSI to be nationally and internationally recognized for its strengths in data science in general and data management and data wrangling in particular. You will direct a part of your research interests towards scientific consulting endeavors (including service teaching for research institutions and industry) and ensure a fruitful interaction between the consulting, education and research mission in data science and this from an interdisciplinary perspective.
We will offer a fulltime appointment as a senior lecturer or higher, which will lead to tenure. In case of a first appointment as a member of the academic staff, the Board of Directors of the University can decide on a temporary appointment for a period up to 3 years. This will lead to a permanent contract if the Board of Directors favorably assesses the party involved.
You can only apply online up to and including 15 April 2020.
The selection procedure consists of a preselection based on application file, an interview and a test lesson / presentation.
We expect a research statement that presents a long-term research vision on data management and data wrangling; how it relates to the field of data science in general; how it aligns with the research mission of DSI and how it integrates with the general research objectives of Hasselt University
