Heilbronn Chair in Data Science

The School of Mathematics is looking for an outstanding academic to lead the School’s expansion in Data Science.

The University of Bristol is currently building its Data Science capability, which aligns perfectly with its strategic priorities and its world-class research expertise across Science and Engineering, including Mathematics & Statistics.

Candidates should have an outstanding track record of research and leadership, and strong links with external organizations are highly desirable. We would also consider applicants of exceptional promise, whose achievements are expected to be commensurate with a professorial position in the near future, for an appointment as Associate Professor.
