Position description

The University of California, Davis, Graduate School of Management invites applications for a position in Business Analytics at the assistant (tenure-track) and associate levels (tenured). Applicants whose research (i) studies the impact of analytics on institutional actions, decisions, or outcomes, (ii) involves the use of massive datasets, and (iii) advanced computational and econometric approaches (such as causal inference, deep learning, natural language processing, reinforcement earning, along with other types of machine learning approaches) are preferred, but all areas of research in business analytics will be considered.

The successful candidate will join a highly active and multidisciplinary group of faculty with research spanning various aspects of Business/Economics/Analytics/Statistics. The GSM has an established Master of Science in Business Analytics program, an online and in-person MBA program, and a Master in Accountancy program. Teaching responsibilities will be in the area of statistics and/or business analytics and may span across multiple programs. Recent graduates should show strong potential for top quality, innovative, and high-impact research in the analytics domain. Experienced candidates should have a record of high-quality published or in-process research consistent with their experience and exhibit strong thought leadership in their respective domains. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. or expect to have completed a Ph.D. by the start of employment.

Interested individuals should complete an application in this online application website RECRUIT (recruit.ucdavis.edu). In your research and teaching statements, please describe your research and teaching interests and qualifications. You should also upload evidence of research (sample publications, working paper, or dissertation). Include a CV/Resume, Diversity Statement, cover letter, "Authorization to release information form", and the contact information of three references in your application. Please do not send letters of reference. An initial review will take place after the initial review date listed. Subsequent reviews may take place after the initial review date. Applications submitted after the start of the initial review will be considered in subsequent reviews if they are needed. This position will remain open until filled.

The University of California, Davis, and the Graduate School of Management are interested in candidates who are committed to the highest standards of scholarship and professional activities, and to the development of a campus climate that supports equality and diversity. The University of California is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment, discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment, UC Davis conducts a reference check on all first-choice candidates for Academic Senate Assistant Professor, Steps 4, 5, or 6 through Professor, Lecturer with Potential for Security of Employment, Steps 4, 5, or 6 through Senior Lecturer with Security of Employment, and Acting Professor of Law through Professor of Law positions. The reference check involves contacting the administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Davis requires all applicants for any open search for these faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If an applicant does not include the signed authorization with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete, and as with any incomplete application, will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists considered for these faculty positions will be subject to reference checks.

UC Davis supports family-friendly recruitments. UC Davis covers travel expenses for a second person to accompany a faculty recruitment candidate who is a mother (or single parent of either gender) of a breast or bottle-feeding child less than two years of age.

At UC Davis, a Work Life program has been in place since January 2003. A group of Faculty Advisors for Work Life was established in 2007 to help publicize and inform the faculty about the programs, policies, and resources associated with work-life/life changes. This group of advisors represents various academic units (colleges, schools, divisions) on the campus. The following summarizes the programs and updated UC policy. https://hr.ucdavis.edu/departments/worklife-wellness.

The UC Davis Partner Opportunities Program (POP) is a service designed to support departments and deans offices in the recruitment and retention of outstanding faculty. https://academicaffairs.ucdavis.edu/partner-opportunities-program-pop.
