Subject: [d-ssc] Western University -- Tier I CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR in Complex Systems Modeling and Analysis
Date: October 22, 2014 at 6:43:43 PM PDT

The UNIVERSITY of WESTERN ONTARIO
Tier I CANADA RESEARCH CHAIR in Complex Systems Modeling and Analysis

The Faculty of Science at Western University is pleased to announce a search for a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Complex Systems Modeling and Analysis tenured position at the rank of Associate Professor or full Professor. The rank will be commensurate with the successful applicant’s qualifications and experience. The successful candidate will be an expert in the development and use of models and analytical tools to study and quantify patterns and processes of the environment, ecosystems, adaptation, as well as monitoring and protection of biota and natural resources. The successful candidate will be jointly appointed to the Department of Biology and either the Department of Computer Science or Statistical and Actuarial Sciences with a start date of July 1, 2015.

In order to participate in Western’s exciting new initiatives in the area of Big Data, the successful candidate will have extensive experience in the development and application of statistical or computational methodologies that utilize large scale quantitative data sets to address questions involving complex systems, including in application areas at Western. Researchers at Western address a wide range of globally-relevant environmental and biological questions. Many take empirical approaches in the field, lab, and intermediate scales in Western’s unique meso-scale experimental facilities such as the Biotron (www.thebiotron.ca), the Advanced Facility for Avian Research (AFAR; www.birds.uwo.ca/AFAR/), and WindEEE Dome (www.eng.uwo.ca/windeee/). The ability to effectively collect, analyze and model quantitative information, often in real time, is essential to the success of this research. Western’s researchers are also supported by the world-class computational infrastructure of Sharcnet and SOSCIP.

In accordance with the regulations set for Tier 1 Canada Research Chairs (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca), the successful candidate will be an outstanding and innovative researcher whose accomplishments are recognized globally for having made a major impact in their field as evidenced by recognition in influential publications in top tier international journals, impact on government policy, and active membership on advisory boards and international panels and/or editorship on major journals. Demonstrated success in attracting high levels of external funding, in particular through large, multidisciplinary team-based projects, is essential. An excellent communicator with an established record as a keynote presenter at national and international conferences, the successful candidate will also have a superior record of attracting and supervising graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, developing timely graduate and undergraduate courses and providing leadership in research, interdisciplinary scholarship, as well as increasing knowledge mobilization and societal benefits.

In accordance with the regulations set for Tier 1 Canada Research Chairs (www.chairs-chaires.gc.ca), the successful candidate will be an outstanding and innovative researcher whose accomplishments have made a major impact; be recognized internationally as a leader in their field; and have a superior record of attracting and supervising graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The successful candidate will provide leadership in research, promote interdisciplinary scholarship, increase knowledge mobilization and societal benefits, and catalyze, in collaboration with faculty and staff, the development of graduate and undergraduate programs in Data Analytics. The preferred candidate will demonstrate leadership, collegiality and strategic vision through collaboration with existing Computer Science and Statistical & Actuarial Sciences faculty members to foster existing and build new links between the departments. The candidate must propose an innovative research program of the highest quality that will attract excellent trainees, students, and future researchers and will have displayed an interest in working on problems of industrial and/or societal relevance.

The information sciences are a cornerstone to broad areas of strength at Western including (i) Environment and Sustainability: with large data challenges in climate and ecosystems, seismic and wind hazards, smart and safe cities, and energy and water utilization; (ii) Financial Markets and Risk: with high-frequency time series and unstructured cross sectional data from multiple sources requiring new analytic techniques; and (iii) Health and Neuroscience: MRI and EEG generate many gigabytes of data, much of which is not effectively utilized to make timely diagnosis, while in public health data analytics underlies solutions for efficiencies in delivery and outcomes.

Big Data in general and Data Analytics in particular is a priority research and teaching thrust at Western University. Demonstration of research interests in one or more of the following: statistical machine learning, topological data analysis, data assimilation, data fusion, applications of compressive sensing to analytics, geometric data analysis, spatial-temporal methods, graph analytics, text analytics, operations research, high frequency trading, credit risk, stream data mining, high performance data systems, software engineering for decision support systems and autonomic systems, and visualization and analysis of high-dimensional data would be especially preferred.

Our researchers are supported by world-class facilities and infrastructure including the computational capacity in Sharcnet (www.sharcnet.ca) and Southern Ontario Smart Computing Innovation Platform (www.soscip.org) as well as large scale facilities including the Biotron (www.thebiotron.ca) and WINDEEE Dome (www.eng.uwo.ca/windeee/) that generate massive amounts of data from environmental simulations. Western's Brain and Mind Institute (http://www.uwo.ca/bmi/) provides access to data from the neurosciences, while the members of the Cultureplex lab (http://www.cultureplex.ca/) are engaged in the application of big data techniques and ideas to problems in the Digital Humanities.

Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, one-page teaching statement, one-page statement listing experience or interest in professional and/or leadership programs, two-page research plan, and contact details of at least three referees to:
Professor Bryan Neff, Associate Dean (Research)
Office of the Dean, Faculty of Science
The University of Western Ontario
London, Ontario N6A 5B7, Canada.

Applications will be considered starting January 1, 2015 and will continue until the position is filled.
