Applicants with research interests in big data analytics, data mining, machine learning, business intelligence and analytics, data base, visualization, optimization, statistics, cognitive computing and network science, and bioinformatics are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates must have a Ph.D. degree from a reputable research university, a demonstrated ability for research, excellent English-language communication skills and a commitment to research and teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Position responsibilities include teaching an average load of two courses per semester, ongoing engagement in relevant professional and research activities, student advising, and committee service.

The NU campus is located in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, in the heart of the new and ultra-modern Left-Bank region of the city. Incoming faculty will enjoy a cosmopolitan living experience, interwoven with traditional cultural influences in food and entertainment. The social life offers a rich and vibrant atmosphere with excellent clubs and restaurants, theater, music, opera, dancing, museums, modern and traditional bazaar shopping, professional and amateur sports, outdoor recreation, and much more.
