Overview: Data sciences can enable transformative research in many disciplines. Tufts has invested strategically in establishing the Data Intensive Studies Center to catalyze the growth of data science and data science enabled scholarship and education. To engage Tufts faculty in the development and growth of DISC and to provide them an opportunity to grow their research interests in this domain DISC will appoint a number of faculty fellows. Salient points of such appointments are:
- Salary support for 10% of time.
- Fellows will generally be appointed in annual cohorts with renewals possible.
- Fellows will be expected to anchor new DISC initiatives and thrust areas and will work closely with the SEED grant and Study group programs as appropriate.- Fellows will have access to DISC resources including staff.

We encourage faculty to nominate colleagues and/or self-nominate with a current CV and a short description (less than 1 page) of what they hope will be accomplished using the fellowship. Please note that we will be communicating with the unit head (department chair) to ensure compatibility of the fellowship with current responsibilities and commitments. These nominations may be made at any time and will be considered as positions open up.
