Faculty positions in Information Science are available at the Cornell University campus in Ithaca, NY. Applications are welcome at all levels, including tenured, tenure-track, and lecturer. Note that faculty positions at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City require a separate application (see the Tech listing below for details).

The Department of 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; data science and its implications; 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 and interactive systems; information visualization; the sociology of organizations and innovation; policy and design for social impact; technology and equity.

Candidates must hold or receive a Ph.D. or equivalent degree by August 2018. Assistant Professor candidates must demonstrate the potential to achieve excellence in research and teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. More senior candidates 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. Lecturer candidates must demonstrate the potential to achieve excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and master level.

To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2017, but will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Faculty hired in these positions at Cornell Tech will be within the Department of Information Science, which spans the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but their teaching and research will be based in New York City. The Department of Information Science brings together faculty, students and researchers who share an interest in advancing our understanding of how people and society interact with computing and information. Current research trajectories include: data science and its implications; ubiquitous computing and interactive systems; information visualization; information policy; computational social science; social computing; network science; human-robot interaction; digital humanities; the history and anthropology of computing and data; the interface of economics and information; critical and interpretive analysis of information systems; the sociology of organizations and innovation; human-computer interaction and design; computer-supported cooperative work and computer-mediated communication; policy and design for social impact; technology and equity.

Candidates must hold or receive a Ph.D. or equivalent degree by August 2018, have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research at the level of tenure-track or tenured faculty in the Department of Information Science, and also have a strong commitment to engagement outside of academia in ways that foster significant commercial or societal impact, as aligned with the mission of the Cornell Tech campus. Successful candidates are expected to pursue an active research program, to teach Master’s and Ph.D.-level graduate courses, and to supervise graduate students.

To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2017, but will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, 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. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, K-12 education, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct commercial and societal impact of our research. Accordingly, within a clearly identified subsection of the Research Statement, the candidate should address prior accomplishments and future plans related to this kind of direct commercial and/or societal impact of their research.  The above application information should be submitted online via our Academic Jobs Online listing.
