2023-2024 CORNELL INFORMATION SCIENCE TENURE-TRACK FACULTY SEARCH, ITHACA CAMPUS The Cornell University Department of Information Science (IS) in the Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science (Bowers CIS) has tenure-track and tenured faculty positions available. The IS Department spans Cornell’s Ithaca and New York City campuses where nearly 40 faculty members are leaders in their respective fields within Information Science's interdisciplinary structure. We are interested in applications from researchers in any of the broad research areas of the department (see https://infosci.cornell.edu/research) and applicants who can contribute to advancing the department's commitment to diversity and inclusion. This year we will focus on hiring candidates whose research engages with Human-AI interaction by building or designing artifacts. Approaches that center on research through design, social computing, visualization, HCI, and technical methods are especially welcome. Faculty hired for this Ithaca campus search will have their teaching and research based in Ithaca. The IS faculty are located in Cornell’s Gates Hall and the department has strong connections with several other units on campus, including Computer Science (also in Gates Hall), Communication, Economics, Sociology, Science and Technology Studies, Operations Research and Information Engineering, Cognitive Science, and the Law School. These connections support the IS department’s mission to advance its understanding of how people and society interact with computing and information. The department also strives to offer a high quality of life, providing a collegial and supportive atmosphere on campus. Beyond campus, Ithaca is in the heart of the Finger Lakes region, and both Cornell and Ithaca offer a vibrant cultural life and a wide range of sporting and outdoor activities close at hand. Cornell also seeks to meet the needs of dual career couples, with both its own Dual Career program and membership in the Upstate New York Higher Education Recruitment Consortium to assist in dual career searches. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree by August 2024. Candidates should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae (CV), a research statement, and a teaching statement. The cover letter and research statement should highlight up to three of their most significant pieces of work for consideration. We also ask applicants for all faculty positions to share their experiences and/or approaches (past, current, or future) to fostering learning, research, service, and/or outreach in a diverse community. Applicants may choose to submit a stand-alone statement or embed the information in other parts of their application materials. Diversity and inclusion are a part of Cornell University's heritage. We are a recognized employer and educator valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities. We also recognize a lawful preference in employment practices for Native Americans living on or near Indian reservations. Fostering an inclusive environment is also a core value of the Ann S. Bowers College of Computing and Information Science. In line with Cornell’s historical commitment to be “an institution where any person can find instruction in any study,” we seek candidates who will create a climate that attracts and is inclusive of all students, including students from historically underrepresented groups and students who have overcome personal challenges. See https://prod.cis.cornell.edu/diversity, as well as https://cis.cornell.edu/diversity for information about related Bowers CIS activities and resources. There is a salary range of $76,200 – $309,900 for positions like this one at Cornell; this range reflects an aggregate of qualifications and disciplines across Cornell University. Actual salary offers in Bowers CIS will be based on education, experience, discipline, and relevant skills.
