Moore JH. Ten important roles for academic leaders in data science. BioData Min. 2020 Oct 26;13:18. doi: 10.1186/s13040-020-00228-5. PMID: 33117434; PMCID: PMC7586691. [PubMed] [BioData Mining]


Data science has emerged as an important discipline in the era of big data and biological and biomedical data mining. As such, we have seen a rapid increase in the number of data science departments, research centers, and schools. We review here ten important leadership roles for a successful academic data science chair, director, or dean. These roles include the visionary, executive, cheerleader, manager, enforcer, subordinate, educator, entrepreneur, mentor, and communicator. Examples specific to leadership in data science are given for each role.
