Ithaca Campus Faculty Positions

The Cornell Information Science Department invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions and lecturer positions at its campus in Ithaca, NY. Note that this ad does not include faculty positions at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City, which require a separate application at FACNYCIS2016. Cornell University is located in Ithaca, New York, a city of about 30,000 people in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. Both Cornell and Ithaca offer a wide range of cultural activities, sports, and outdoor activities with the pleasures of both city and country close at hand. Ithaca is Gorges! 

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 computing and information. Exceptional candidates in all areas related to the department's current research trajectories and priorities will be given serious consideration; these include human-computer interaction (HCI) and design; computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and computer-mediated communication (CMC); social computing; information policy; network science; computational social science; digital humanities; the history and anthropology of computing and data; the interface of economics and information; critical and interpretive analysis of information systems; human-robot interaction (HRI); ubiquitous computing; data science and its implications; information visualization; the sociology of organizations and innovation; and information science approaches to societal challenges. 

We invite applicants at any rank. Assistant Professor candidates must receive a Ph.D. or equivalent degree by August 2017, 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 cover letter, curriculum vita (CV), brief statements of research and teaching interests, and arrange to have at least three reference letters submitted. In the cover letter, CV, or research statement, applicants should identify a small set of their most significant pieces of work. 

The Information Science Department is housed in the Faculty of Computing and Information Science. In Ithaca, it is located in Cornell's new Gates Hall. It has strong connections with several other units on campus, including: Computer Science (with which it shares Gates Hall), Communication, Economics, Sociology, Science and Technology Studies, Operations Research and Information Engineering, and Cognitive Science.
