The University of Georgia is hiring a cluster of eight tenure-track or tenured faculty in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, and Infectious Disease Dynamics through a Presidential Faculty Hiring Initiative over two years, five with target start date in August 2022 and three with target start date in August 2023.
This cluster will strengthen and expand UGA’s position as a global leader in infectious disease dynamics. Recognized globally for its contributions to disease ecology, epidemiology, and evolution, UGA is seeking to build on its existing core strengths in modeling pathogen spillover, transmission, interventions, and spatial spread by expanding its capabilities in epidemic forecasting, biosurveillance, applications of artificial intelligence to infectious disease research and infectious disease dynamics, and nonparametric, agent-based, and multi-scale modeling of disease transmission.
UGA seeks to expand research at the cutting edge of infectious disease science, and build scientific capacity for pandemic prevention and preparedness. This hiring cluster is aimed at developing an integrated basic and translational scientific paradigm for understanding epidemics. In line with these goals and new national priorities pertaining to pandemic prediction and preparedness, UGA is seeking data scientists cross-trained in epidemiology, ecology and informatics. UGA is currently hiring for five faculty positions in one of four schools or colleges.
