Ithaca Campus Faculty Positions

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.
