SLIS Jobline


Lecturer/Senior Lecturer, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland

The Department of Computer and Information Sciences (CIS) seeks to appoint a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Asst Professor/Associate Professor) in Information Science.  CIS provides one of the largest postgraduate programmes in Information and Library Studies in the UK, and is a member of the iSchools group, a coalition of the world's leading information schools.  Our SISRG (Strathclyde iSchool Research Group) research group is an interdisciplinary information science research group, investigating information behaviour, information engagement, information policy and interactive information retrieval.  In pursuit of a literate and informed society, much of our work is societal in nature and holistic in perspective, investigating human information need and use, and informing the design and delivery of public information systems and services.


We seek to recruit an energetic, highly motivated scholar who will contribute to the research, teaching, and administrative activities of the school in the MSc and PhD programs. The successful applicant will have primary research interests and expertise in information and library studies.  The appointee will be expected to teach on the Department's MSc Information and Library Studies and to work closely with our Information Seeking Behaviour research group (a sub-group within our SISRG).  We particularly encourage applicants with practical library experience.


Candidates for Lecturer level will demonstrate significant promise in their research discipline with a record of achievement in their career to date.  Candidates for Senior Lecturer level will already have a track record of scholarship and teaching experience. They will have ambitious academic goals and an understanding of how to bring in the grant income required to fund those goals.


An appointment will be made at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer dependent on the skills and experience of the candidate. Please indicate which position you wish to be considered for.
