As he planned the University of Virginia and designed its first buildings, Thomas Jefferson envisioned a great public institution of global scope and character in his words, the "future bulwark of the human mind in this hemisphere." As we move ever closer to fulfilling the vision of U.Va. as the first truly great public institution of higher learning in America, our employees advance our core work of teaching, conducting research, providing best-practice care for patients, and encouraging public service. Our staff are essential team members in an environment known for diversity, community involvement, intellectual excellence, artistic pursuits, and natural beauty at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

Facilities Management (FM) supports the University of Virginia's wide range of research, academic and patient care programs. With over 1,200 employees dedicated to excellence, Facilities Management is responsible for the day-to-day operation, repair and maintenance of UVA's buildings, infrastructure and grounds as well as other University-owned and leased properties. 

The Senior Data Analyst, Sustainability is a core member of the University of Virginia's Office for Sustainability, which seeks to engage our communities, steward resources, and discover ways to improve Grounds and beyond for generations to come. Under the supervision of the Sustainability Director, the Senior Data Analyst, Sustainability is responsible for analyzing energy, emissions, water, materials, and other sustainability-related metrics to draw conclusions and create sophisticated analysis and reports from complex data sets, both to evaluate progress towards goals, as well as to develop projections to determine the most effective strategies for UVA to meet sustainability goals. The Senior Data Analyst, Sustainability will be expected to become one of the University's subject matter experts for on-Grounds sustainability-related metrics and data to evaluate progress towards pan-university goals, in topics such as energy, greenhouse gas emissions, nitrogen, water, waste, food and engagement. This work will be accomplished through strong partnerships with schools and departments across UVA. 

The Senior Data Analyst, Sustainability develops processes for ongoing, accurate, and meaningful sustainability-related data tracking for the Sustainability Plan, program tracking, and other sustainability-related goals, with a particular focus on energy and greenhouse gas emissions. The position utilizes software programs, statistical analysis, and advanced analytics to organize, calculate, maintain, visualize, and meaningfully analyze utility data and other metrics to support the development, expansion, maintenance, and creation of University-wide sustainability services and programs - both technical as well as outreach and engagement programs. The Senior Data Analyst also proactively identifies appropriate new metrics and measurements to track and analyze, as well as new tools and processes to streamline data collection. 

The Senior Data Analyst will be required at times to enter mechanical rooms, energy plants and steam tunnels.  
For Thomas Jefferson, learning was an integral part of life. The "academical village" was created around the assumption that learning is a lifelong and shared process, and that interaction between scholars and students enlivens the pursuit of knowledge.
