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. The IS
Department spans Cornell’s Ithaca and New York City campuses; faculty hired
in this year's search will have their teaching and research based in

This year’s search is primarily focused on hiring candidates who have a
computational/technical focus on research areas within information science,
including computational social science, network science, visualization, and
technical approaches to HCI. We are especially interested in candidates
whose scholarship and service further the department’s goals around
diversity and inclusion. Exceptional candidates in other areas related to
the department’s research (see https://infosci.cornell.edu/research) may
also be considered, though we plan to prioritize candidates who connect to
the focal areas above.

Ithaca 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), Communication, Economics, Sociology,
Science and Technology Studies, Operations Research and Information
Engineering, and Cognitive Science. 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

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree by August, 2021.
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, rank, and tenure status will be commensurate
with qualifications and experience.

Candidates should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae (CV), and
research and teaching statements. The letter, CV, or research statement
should identify a small set of their most significant pieces of work.
Candidates should also submit a statement of diversity, equity, and
inclusion, as diversity and inclusion are a key part of Cornell
University’s heritage, and we are a recognized employer and educator
valuing AA/EEO, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities.
Fostering an inclusive environment is also a core value of IS and CIS. In
line with Cornell’s historical commitment to educating “…any person…in any
study…”, we seek candidates who will create a climate that helps attract
and is inclusive of all students, including students from historically
underrepresented groups and students who have overcome personal challenges.
The statement of contribution to diversity, equity and inclusion is an
opportunity for candidates to describe how their research, teaching, and/or
service will contribute to a diverse, inclusive climate. See
for more information, including suggestions for elements we look for in
such statements, as well as https://cis.cornell.edu/diversity for
information about related CIS activities and resources.
