Position Description:    

Faculty positions in Information Science are available at the Cornell Tech campus in New York City. Applications are welcome at all levels, including tenured and tenure-track; applications in the areas of cyber-physical systems (especially in urban environments) and health tech are particularly encouraged. This search includes Cornell faculty positions that are part of the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech. Note that faculty positions at the Ithaca campus require a separate application.

Faculty hired in these positions at Cornell Tech will be within the Department of Information Science, which spans the Ithaca and New York City campuses, but their teaching and research will be based in New York City. The Department of Information Science brings together faculty, students and researchers who share an interest in advancing our understanding of how people and society interact with computing and information. Current research trajectories include: data science and its implications; ubiquitous computing and interactive systems; information visualization; information policy; computational social science; social computing; network science; human-robot interaction; digital humanities; the history and anthropology of computing and data; the interface of economics and information; critical and interpretive analysis of information systems; the sociology of organizations and innovation; human-computer interaction and design; computer-supported cooperative work and computer-mediated communication; policy and design for social impact; technology and equity.

Candidates must hold or receive a Ph.D. or equivalent degree by August 2018, have demonstrated an ability to conduct outstanding research at the level of tenure-track or tenured faculty in the Department of Information Science, and also have a strong commitment to engagement outside of academia in ways that foster significant commercial or societal impact, as aligned with the mission of the Cornell Tech campus. Successful candidates are expected to pursue an active research program, to teach Master’s and Ph.D.-level graduate courses, and to supervise graduate students.

To ensure full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2017, but will be accepted until all positions are filled.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, brief statements of research and teaching interests, 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. A distinguishing characteristic of research at Cornell Tech, in addition to world-class academic work, is that it engages deeply with external communities, organizations, K-12 education, and industry to address real-world problems and contexts that amplify the direct commercial and societal impact of our research. Accordingly, within a clearly identified subsection of the Research Statement, the candidate should address prior accomplishments and future plans related to this kind of direct commercial and/or societal impact of their research.  The above application information should be submitted online at
