The Cornell University Department of Information Science (IS) in the college of Computing and Information Science (CIS) has tenure track and tenured faculty positions available at its Ithaca, NY campus. Ithaca, NY is in the heart of the Finger Lakes region. Both Cornell and Ithaca offer a vibrant cultural life and a wide range of sporting and outdoor activities with the pleasures of both city and country close at hand. 

Faculty hired in these positions will be members of the IS Department, which spans the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but their teaching and research will be based in Ithaca. A separate application is needed to be considered for a position at the New York City campus; please visit our website ( for further information about the Cornell Tech application. 

The IS Department 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 the interface of economics and information; network science; computational social science; information policy; the sociology of organizations and innovation; human-computer interaction (HCI) and design; data science and its implications; digital humanities; the history and anthropology of computing and data; critical and interpretive analysis of information systems; computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) and computer-mediated communication (CMC); social computing; human-robot interaction (HRI); ubiquitous computing and interactive systems; information visualization; policy and design for social impact; technology and equity. 

The IS Department is located in Cornell's Gates Hall, and 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. 

Additionally, candidates must hold or receive a Ph.D. or equivalent degree by August 2019. 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. 

To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by November 1, 2018, but will be accepted until all positions are filled. 

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vita (CV), brief statements of research and teaching interests, a diversity statement (more details below) 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 above application information should be submitted online at 

Diversity is a core value of CIS, IS and Cornell, and we seek candidates who will create a climate that attracts students of all races, nationalities, abilities, and genders.  We strongly encourage women and underrepresented minorities to apply. We are working to create more equitable opportunities for underrepresented groups to participate in university life in research and teaching, across ranks, and among faculty, students, and staff. The Diversity Statement provides an opportunity for applicants to reflect on how they and their approach to research, teaching, and/or service examines, identifies, and/or will contribute to positive social change that supports people who represent differences in gender, class, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, national and cultural boundaries, national origin, worldview, intellectual origin, ability, and other identities. We invite you to be reflective and describe where you stand to contribute, learn and grow with regard to issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and justice, and your potential to mentor and educate students who will serve diverse populations. In short, we would like to know, what does “diversity” in academic teaching, service, and research mean to you? For your reference, please consult the CIS diversity web pages: Cornell University also seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, has a Dual Career program, and is a member of the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist with dual career searches.
