Cross-Faculty Collaborations: FoS Cluster Hire Proposal

Cluster Hire figure

In May, DFP was joined by the Data Science Institute in submitting a Faculty Cluster Hire proposal to the Faculty of Science as a collaboration between Computer Science, Statistics and several Health departments. Its focus is on the support of health care information management for patients with health complexity, an intensive and ambitious topic requiring close collaboration among disciplines from clinicians to data science, bridged by HCI.

The competition was again intense, but the partnership has been deepened, particularly in DFP/DSI, and several of the Health hires are proceeding. We look forward to finding additional ways to support this initiative.
