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 about the Information Science Department appears at http://www.infosci.cornell.edu/
