The Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering at Indiana University (IU) in Bloomington, Indiana invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position to begin in August 2022 in the Department of Information and Library Science (ILS). We are particularly interested in hiring in the area of knowledge representation and/or archives. Applicants should be familiar with social, cultural, and/or technical aspects of AI systems.

 

The Department of Information and Library Science (ILS), formerly the School of Library and Information Science, has a long, successful history, having graduated over 8,000 students since it opened its doors in 1946. U.S. News & World Report ranked the Bloomington Information and Library Science program ninth nationally in its most recent rankings.

 

Faculty research areas in ILS include data curation, social informatics, digital libraries, music informatics, digital humanities, information retrieval, documentation, text mining, computer mediated communication, digital libraries, and more. Graduate degrees offered in the Department are a Master of Information Science (MIS), a Master of Library Science (MLS), and a Ph.D. in Information Science.

 

We seek candidates prepared to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education, especially those with experience in teaching or working with diverse student populations. Duties will include research, teaching both online and in person, and service to the School.

 

Applicants should have a demonstrable potential for excellence in research and teaching and a Ph.D. in Information Science or a related field expected before August 2022.

 

Applications received by December 1, 2021 will be assured full consideration; however, the search will remain open until a suitable candidate is found. Candidates should review application requirements, learn about IU, Luddy School, and benefits, and apply online at:
