Position Announcement: Professor of Practice in Information Systems and Data Science at Texas Tech University.

The Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech University invites applications for a professor of practice (open rank) in information systems and data science beginning January or August 2018. The position requires either a Ph.D. in MIS or a related field (preferred) or a masters degree in MIS or a related field and extensive work experience allowing the person to be professionally qualified for the position. Salary is commensurate with experience.

Professors of practice at the Rawls College teach three courses per academic term and engage in significant service activities. Some research or consulting is required to maintain academically qualified or professionally-qualified status. For this position, we seek someone who can teach a variety of MIS, business analytics, and/or statistics courses to fill teaching needs in our undergraduate program, the MBA program, and the M.S.-Data Science program. Candidates who have strong records of scholarship supported by extramural funding and who have the proven capacity or clear potential to bring externally sponsored research to Texas Tech University are encouraged to apply. Service duties include program-building, as well as commitment to extracurricular activities. Service to the department, college, and university is expected.

The MIS area offers an undergraduate degree, a Masters degree in Data Science, and a Ph.D. degree. The college offers undergraduate, Masters of Science, MBA (STEM and Working Professional), and Ph.D. degrees. In addition to ISQS, the Rawls College has areas of Finance, Management, Marketing, and Energy Commerce, as well as a School of Accountancy and a program in Health Organization Management. The Rawls College of Business is located in a new state-of-the-art building opened in 2012.

The ISQS area includes the Center for Advanced Analytics and Business Intelligence, which is devoted to research on Data Science topics. The Center hosts an annual Symposium on Big Data each spring (see http://zlin.ba.ttu.edu/BigDataSymposium2015.htm).

The business programs at Texas Tech benefit from several advantages not possessed by many locations. Texas Tech is a comprehensive university that includes a medical school and health sciences center, a school of pharmacy, an engineering college, a law school, an agriculture school, an experimental sciences center, and many other schools and colleges. Additionally, Texas Tech’s location boasts a regional medical hub with two large hospitals and a large healthcare industry, a regional banking hub, a major energy production area (wind and oil-and-gas), and a significant agriculture industry.

Texas Tech University is a Carnegie Very High Research Activity university (Tier 1) with approximately 35,000 students. The university is built in Spanish Renaissance architecture and boasts one of the top university public art collections in the nation, with works from some of the world’s leading contemporary artists.

Texas Tech is located in Lubbock, a city of 250,000 in the south plains region of Texas. With a grid- like structure and a superb road and highway system, nearly every point-to-point trip in the city takes 15 minutes or less. The cost of living is low compared with most metropolitan areas in the U.S., and Texas has no state income tax. Excellent public and private schools are available. The climate is excellent: Winters are short and relatively mild and summers are sunny with low humidity.

As an Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer, Texas Tech University is dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural environment. We actively encourage applications from all those who can contribute, through their research, teaching, and/or service, to the diversity and excellence of the academic community at Texas Tech University. The university welcomes applications from minorities, women, veterans, persons with disabilities, and dual-career couples.
