Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.


Data science has long been a staple at many universities. It helps students develop competence in collecting, analyzing, and reporting results from data. At the Department of Quantitative Theory and Methods (QTM), we provide the essential grounding but go a crucial step further, recognizing that the liberal arts are central to unleashing data's true potential. Using data intelligently requires well-honed critical thinking and research design skills. That means going beyond the what and discovering the why. It's about asking the right questions, the more profound questions. It's about collecting, analyzing, and reporting the correct data. It's about impactfully communicating what we learn from data, especially given its often technical nature. QTM is a separate program, providing critical and complementary education to traditional data science programs elsewhere. The Undergraduate Program Coordinator is vital in advancing QTM's mission by providing direct and indirect undergraduate support.
