Data Science, including data analytics, is a thematic priority research area for the College of Science and Engineering. Through the DSI and our schools (especially the schools of Computer Science; Engineering; and Mathematical and Statistical Sciences), as well as other Research Institutes and centres, NUI Galway currently holds a strong international reputation in specific research areas of Data Science and Data Analytics and in translating this research into strong teaching programmes. The concurrent recruitment of a Professor in Data Analytics and Professor in Data Management is a strategic opportunity to further expand significantly this capability and expertise, open it up to new and emerging areas, and lead the continued growth of this research priority area in the University.

Both of the Professorships are senior academic positions of key strategic importance. Specifically, the successful appointees will provide strategic research leadership to the DSI in the field of data analytics/data management.

The successful appointees are expected to enrich University of Galway's track record in the field of data analytics and data management by: • leading internationally-recognised research and innovation • developing strategic partnerships with industry and international research centres of esteem • attracting high quality students and early career researchers to University of Galway • translating research into strong teaching programmes.

This research can be applied across areas such as Health and Human Performance, Enterprise and Services, Smart Communities and IoT, and Sustainability and Operations. Since its inception in 2013 it has attracted over 150 million euro in funding awards from Government, Industry and EU programmes.

One of the key roles of the Professorships is to further develop strategic research areas and strategic research partnerships aligned to Insight at the University of Galway.

Data and the science, analysis, amangement and application of data is, by nature, multi-disciplinary, and therefore, the Professors will provide leadership in engaging with multidisciplinary research involving colleagues from across the university to reinforce existing collaborations especially in the areas of sustainability, digital humanities, healthcare, and policy- making.
