Four Open-Rank Tenure-Track Faculty Positions, Syracuse University School of Information Studies, Syracuse, NY

Four Open-Rank Tenure-Track Faculty Positions
Syracuse University School of Information Studies

Syracuse University's School of Information Studies (The iSchool, ischool.syr.edu) seeks scholars and leaders to fill four open-rank tenure-track faculty positions to start in Fall 2019. Successful candidates will have a productive program of research in an information-related field and be able to contribute to the development of students and courses in our degree programs in information management and technology, data science and data analytics, library and information science (including school media) and information science and technology.

The successful candidates will join our "Faculty of One": a highly collegial environment that stresses interdisciplinary collaboration amongst our school's faculty and with other members of the university community and beyond. Our research and teaching often adopt a socio-technical approach, recognizing that important problems are not simply technical nor just about people, but rather require both social and technological insights. We seek applicants whose topic areas and skills adopt this philosophy, and who can speak to overlapping areas within the school.

We are particularly seeking applications from researchers whose interests are located in one or more of the following scholarly areas:

  • technical, behavioral and/or social approaches to address privacy and security for trustworthy cyberspace
  • computational social science
  • digital humanities
  • big data approaches to exploring important organizational, scientific, social, economic, cultural or political questions
  • information and knowledge management with big data
  • community-focused librarianship in K-12, academic, special or public libraries
  • information literacy, especially ways to increase users' resilience to misinformation or to privacy and security attacks
  • library services, such as youth or reference services
  • information organization and retrieval
  • human-computer interaction (HCI), user experience and/or user behaviour
  • design and evaluation of interactive, social, ubiquitous and/or other emerging computing systems
  • designing for marginalized populations
  • ethical and policy implications of digital technologies and design

We specifically seek applications from women and from members of groups traditionally underrepresented among scholars in higher education. We are interested in candidates who have the communication skills and cross-cultural abilities to be effective with diverse groups of students, colleagues and community members. Experience mentoring students from marginalized groups is particularly valued.

Rank and experience level of these positions are open: we encourage applications from both junior and senior scholars with a record of achievement appropriate to the rank sought at time of application. A completed Ph.D. in a relevant field of study or the expectation of completion of the Ph.D. by August 2019 is required. The School is committed to professional development for junior faculty, and provides excellent mentoring and support.

Application process
Applications--including

  1. a cover letter outlining the applicant's interests and qualifications and including the rank sought;
  2. a current curriculum vitae;
  3. short statements describing interests and accomplishments in research and in teaching; and
  4. names and contact information of at least three references--can be submitted at www.sujobopps.com, job #074043.

All applications will be held in strict confidence; we will seek references only from finalists. We are pleased to speak with interested applicants ahead of submitting materials.

We will begin screening applicants in October 2018 and continue until the positions are filled, so applications should be received by 7 October 2018 to ensure full consideration. Direct questions to Dr. Kevin Crowston, search committee chair, crowston@syr.edu.
