Join renowned iSchool faculty and deepen and extend our strengths in data science and human-computer interaction (HCI), including visualization of and analytic approaches to large and heterogeneous data sets.



Syracuse University, School of Information Studies At: Syracuse University, School of Information Studies
Location: Syracuse, NY

Syracuse University's School of Information Studies (The iSchool, see ischool.syr.edu) is soliciting applications from scholars to join its renowned and interdisciplinary faculty. The iSchool will be hiring for multiple positions. These positions are open rank, and we specifically encourage graduating doctoral students, senior assistant professors, and recently tenured faculty to apply.

We seek colleagues who can deepen and extend our strengths in data science and human-computer interaction (HCI). Data science is a broad category that includes visualization of and analytic approaches to large and heterogeneous data sets, developing tools and approaches for scientific collaboration and data access/retrieval, computational social science, and examining large-scale online social configurations. Although we encourage applications from any area of HCI, we are particularly interested in candidates with research and teaching experience in the design, building and testing of online systems/environments, mobile applications, and other artifacts, and who are engaging in studies of uses and users in a field or laboratory setting.

The ability to obtain research grants and other external funding will be considered a competitive advantage in our evaluations, as will evidence of teaching experience and a commitment to teaching excellence. A record of publishing impactful scholarship is expected. Although rank and years of experience are open, we will consider outstanding ABDs with a strong expectation of a successful dissertation defense by August 2015.

_Contact_:
Applicants must submit a cover letter outlining their interests and qualifications (including the rank they are seeking); a current curriculum vitae; a statements describing research and teaching interests and accomplishments; and names and contact information of at least three references to:

www.sujobopps.com, JOB #071012, or use direct link to this job.

Strong candidates will be contacted for letters of reference and asked to provide research samples and a teaching portfolio or other evidence of teaching experience. Please do not submit these items with the initial application.

We will begin screening applicants on 02 April, 2014 and continue accepting applications until the positions are filled. The search may extend into the 2014-2015 academic year. Questions may be directed to Dr. Stromer-Galley, the search chair, at jstromer@syr.edu.

Syracuse University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
