 I wanted to make sure you had seen the listing for the job opening here in
the Information Science department at Cornell. (Ithaca this time.) The job
call is broad in terms of the specializations within the field of
Information Science we'll consider, and we're an interdisciplinary group,
so we're open to people who come at these issues from different vantage
points. But, it's worth saying that there's a strong desire here for
applicants in the area of information policy, broadly construed. Please
pass this along if you can think of anyone who might fit one of these areas.

 I've attached the text of the job call below; our deadline is Dec 1.


 The Information Science Department at Cornell University invites
applications for tenure-track faculty positions. Exceptional candidates in
all areas related to the department's current research trajectories will be
given serious consideration; these include HCI, ubiquitous computing,
networks, applications and analysis of big data, information policy,
markets, social media, visualization, and critical and interpretive
analysis of information systems. We expect to make appointments at any
rank. Assistant Professor candidates must receive a Ph.D. or equivalent
degree by August 2013, and must demonstrate the potential to achieve
excellence in research and teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate
levels. More senior candidates should hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and
must have an established record of outstanding research and excellent
teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels; salary and rank
will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Experienced
applicants may merit a tenured Associate Professor or Professor position,
depending on their qualifications. Applicants should submit a curriculum
vita, brief statements of research and teaching interests, and arrange to
have at least three references letters submitted. Information Science at
Cornell University brings together faculty, students and researchers who
share an interest in advancing our understanding of how people and society
interact with information.

 The Information Science Department is housed in the Faculty of Computing
and Information Science, and has strong connections with several other
units on campus, including: Computer Science, Communication, Economics,
Sociology, Science and Technology Studies, Operations Research and
Information Engineering, and Cognitive Science. The Information Science
Department at Cornell embraces diversity and seeks candidates who will
create a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities and
genders. Cornell University is an inclusive, dynamic, and innovative Ivy
League university and New York's land-grant institution, with its main
campus in Ithaca, NY, its medical campus on the Upper East Side of
Manhattan, and its new CornellNYC campus planned for Roosevelt Island in
New York City. The University's staff, faculty, and students impart
an uncommon sense of larger purpose and contribute creative ideas and best
practices to further the university's mission of teaching, research, and
outreach. These faculty positions are based in New York City at the
CornellNYC Tech campus which is located in temporary facilities until
moving to its permanent home on Roosevelt Island. Cornell University is an
equal opportunity, affirmative action educator and employer.  We strongly
encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply.

 Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Information
