Data Science is an area of tremendous growth for the department and the College of Arts and Sciences. University wide, investments have been made in hiring faculty who do research in data science or data-enabled science and in the research computing (data, high-performance computing, machine learning) facilities and support personnel to enhance their opportunities for success.

Candidates working in areas of gravity that include data analysis, ML/AI, are encouraged to apply. The University of Rhode Island has a strong gravity research group jointly with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth — the UMass-URI Gravity Research Consortium (U2GRC). Current researchers in this group include Drs. Collin Capano (UMassD), Sarah Caudill (UMassD), Rob Coyne (URI), Scott Field (UMassD), Bob Fisher (UMassD), Doug Gobeille (URI), Gaurav Khanna (URI/UMassD), Michael Puerrer (URI) and Vijay Varma (UMassD).
