Stephenson Chair of Data Science Fund
When the Stephenson Chair of Data Science Fund is fully funded, the endowment distribution will supplement the base salary of a faculty member in the University of Virginia Data Science Institute or any successor organization. The distribution may also be used for non-salary support costs related to the scholarly pursuits of the Stephenson Professor of Data Science.
The Stephenson Chair of Data Science was vacant during the 2015-16 academic year. A search is underway to identify a distinguished scholar to become the inaugural Stephenson Professor of Data Science. Pending approval by the Board of Visitors, a chairholder will be named to the professorship in the future.
