Hi SOCnetters,

A few of us (Mark Handock, me, and others) have set up a new postdoctoral

interest to many of you:

The Departments of Mathematics and Statistics at UCLA are now advertising a 
3-year postdoctoral position in Social Justice and Data Science.

Description of the position and to apply, go here:

A brief description: The Department of Mathematics and Department of Statistics 
at the University of California, Los Angeles invite applications for a 
three-year position as an Assistant Adjunct Professor in Social Justice and 
Data Science.

This Social-Justice Data-Science (SJDS) scholar position, which will be 
appointed in either the Mathematics or Statistics department, is based on a 
dual-mentor system whereby the scholar has a mentor in either Mathematics or 
Statistics and a second mentor who is a social-justice scholar from another 
campus unit (see https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__datatheory.ucla.edu_social-5Fjustice.html&d=DwIBAg&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=eKNYagrtbXIPjvmGrDcWX_9mKotUhXSRMZ3hepLtzN0&s=e7_WsTpAYBQUDDdc_RlPUxPA8CKhYvWriUI5ZyFWZs8&e= ). The SJDS 
scholar will address social-justice questions via empirical research or 
analysis, with a preference for the study of inequity and disparities in the 
Los Angeles region. This position is open to scholars from all disciplines (but 
who possess or will possess a Ph.D. that is grounded in data science by the 
time of appointment). Applicants should also show evidence of excellence in 
teaching and research.

The expected teaching load for this position is four one-quarter courses per 
year. This is expected to include both mathematics and/or statistics courses 
from the existing curriculum and also courses related to SJDS and in the 
candidates field of expertise.
