The Department of Economics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha invites applications for an instructor in the area of business analytics and data science. While this is an instructor position, salary will be commensurate with the skills necessary for this highly technical teaching position.
The College of Business Administration (CBA) offers several high-demand data science programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels with concentrations in Econometrics and Data Analytics as well as Business Analytics.

Given the nature of these courses, a deep understanding of data storage and programming techniques is highly valued.
Company is a metropolitan university that is strongly integrated with the local employers. Therefore, forming partnerships with local organizations to enhance the students’ learning experience is expected. In particular, we expect that some classes taught by the instructor will be integrated with partners in Homeland Security as part of a grant recently awarded to our college. Other local partnerships (as well as other innovative teaching techniques) are encouraged.

The department houses the Company Center for Economic Education, the production office of the Journal of Economics Teaching, and multiple faculty members who research education or learning.
