The Cornell Information Science Department invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at Cornell Tech, Cornell University's new campus in New York City. Cornell Tech is a graduate research and education campus focused on creating pioneering leaders and technologies for the digital age. This search includes Cornell faculty positions that are part of the Jacobs Institute at Cornell Tech. However, it does not include faculty positions at the Ithaca campus, which require a separate application at FACITHACAIS2016.

We invite applicants at any rank, including the ranks of Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree and have a demonstrated ability to conduct outstanding research and education.  In keeping with the mission of Cornell Tech, applicants must also have a strong interest in activities that reach beyond academia for external engagement and impact, in areas that may include technology commercialization and entrepreneurship, or activities with non-profit organizations, government and policy issues, international programs, or pre-college (K-12) education (significant record for senior positions).

We are interested in exceptional applicants from any area related to the department's current research trajectories and priorities; these include human-computer interaction (HCI) and design; 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; data science and its implications; information visualization; the sociology of organizations and innovation; and information science approaches to societal challenges. In addition to the areas of work listed above, we are particularly interested in individuals whose work fits into one of the three initial hubs at Cornell Tech (Connective Media, Healthier Life, and Built Environment).

We will begin reviewing and interviewing candidates immediately and continue until positions are filled. Applicants should submit a curriculum vita (CV), brief statements describing research, teaching, and external engagement, 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.

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.
