Four Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) Faculty Positions
Syracuse University School of Information Studies

Syracuse University's School of Information Studies (the iSchool, ischool.syr.edu) seeks scholars and leaders to fill four Assistant Professor (tenure track) faculty positions to start in Fall 2020. Exceptional candidates may be considered at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. Successful candidates will have a productive program of research in an information-related field and be able to contribute to the development of students and courses in our degree programs in information management and technology, data science and data analytics, library and information science (including school media), and information science and technology. 

The successful candidates will join our “Faculty of One”: a highly collegial environment that stresses interdisciplinary collaboration among our school's faculty and with other members of the university community and beyond. Our research and teaching often adopt a socio-technical approach, recognizing that important problems are not simply technical nor just about people, but rather require both social and technological insights. We seek applicants whose topic areas and skills adopt this philosophy, and who can speak to overlapping areas within the school. 

We are specifically seeking applicants with interests in one of four areas:  

1) network social dynamics, including causal networks, network science, social cognition, social contagion, relationship science, social networks or group decision making (position #074733). https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.sujobopps.com_postings_81478&d=DwIGaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=fQbr0mfWuZqlvR5ZvJcrLNGJafzDQv42mTN47F94_8k&s=zJ8vPH_OUt-8cKb3YjZj_O-5EBb_66DLsgGPziI_Oiw&e= 

2) augmented cognition, including forecasting, prediction systems, artificial intelligence, recommender systems, deep learning, data fusion, voting systems, machine learning, agent-based modeling, distributed cognition, human factors and collective behavior (position #074725). https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.sujobopps.com_postings_81479&d=DwIGaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=fQbr0mfWuZqlvR5ZvJcrLNGJafzDQv42mTN47F94_8k&s=3ZIfrs138JiYoERHdqpbQRnerfdTdjKjAY9gZjneYXg&e= 

3) data-centered and big data approaches to innovation and entrepreneurship  (position #074726). https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.sujobopps.com_postings_81480&d=DwIGaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=fQbr0mfWuZqlvR5ZvJcrLNGJafzDQv42mTN47F94_8k&s=OspE6aefzzMOsZ7EhL5wX_cNIAywns-9obIcYQV-G8o&e= 

4) technical, behavioral and/or social approaches to address security and privacy for trustworthy cyberspace (position #074727). https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.sujobopps.com_postings_81481&d=DwIGaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=fQbr0mfWuZqlvR5ZvJcrLNGJafzDQv42mTN47F94_8k&s=Nz_PT7n1viic0sCJRqJKdJaFehKLw1cw3ly9YzhB48Y&e= 

Positions 1 and 2 are partexisting strengths and will participate in an organized cluster that spans the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs, the College of Law, the Departments of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and of Psychology and the School of Information Studies. 

Position 3 is part of an Invest Syracuse Cluster Hire Initiative in Innovation and Entrepreneurship that has the goal of building an Innovation Living-Learning Ecosystem at the University. As an integral part of this investment, Syracuse University will recruit multiple candidates for faculty positions for a cluster in the areas of invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. Faculty hired into these positions will build on our existing strengths and will participate in an organized cluster that spans the Colleges of Visual & Performing Arts, the College of Engineering & Computer Science, the Whitman School of Management, the School of Information Studies as well as the Syracuse University Libraries.

Position 4 is part of an Invest Syracuse Signature Hire Initiative to strengthen teaching and research capacity in security for trustworthy cyberspace in the School of Information Studies. Signature hires should contribute to the national and international reputation of Syracuse University and translate their success into practical, real-world action with their students. 

Women and members of groups traditionally underrepresented among scholars in higher education are encouraged to apply. We are interested in candidates who have the communication skills and cross-cultural abilities to be effective with diverse groups of students, colleagues and community members. Experience mentoring students from marginalized groups is particularly valued. 

A completed Ph.D. in a relevant field of study or the expectation of completion of the Ph.D. by August 2020 is required. The School is committed to professional development for junior faculty, and provides excellent mentoring and support.

The University student Arts and Sciences, Education, Engineering and Computer Science, Sport and Human Dynamics, Information Studies, Law, Management, Citizenship and Public Affairs, Public Communications, and Visual and Performing Arts.

Syracuse is a medium-sized city situated in the geographic center of New York state,  approximately a four-hour drive from New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto and Montreal. With a metropolitan population of 700,000, Syracuse is a center for medical care and for cultural, recreational and artistic events, including the Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse Stage, Symphoria, Destiny Mall, multiple sporting events, and festivals including Jazz Fest and Winterfest. The outdoor enthusiast will enjoy four seasons of recreational opportunities, having the Adirondack Mountains, the Finger Lakes, Lake Ontario, and the Thousand Islands Region within easy driving distance of the Syracuse campus.

The University is proud to offer a benefit program that is family-friendly, progressive, and responsive to the diversity of our community. Full-time faculty members are eligible for dependent tuition benefits, family medical leave and, in addition to maternity/disability leave, parental leave (primary caregivers of either gender may apply). The Office of Equal Opportunity, Inclusion & Resolution Services coordinates workplace accommodations for faculty and staff, guiding the ongoing development of an accessible university that embraces disability as an aspect of diversity.

EEOC
Syracuse University is an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action institution. The University prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, color, creed, religion, sex, gender, national origin, citizenship, ethnicity, marital status, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, veteran status, or any other status protected by applicable law to the extent prohibited by law. This nondiscrimination policy covers admissions, employment, and access to and treatment in University programs, services, and activities. 

Commitment to Supporting and Hiring Veterans
A commitment to veterans and their families is a distinguishing characteristic of Syracuse University. The University has a long history of engaging veterans and the military-connected community through its educational programs, community outreach, and employment programs. After World War II, Syracuse University welcomed more than 10,000 returning veterans to our campus, and those veterans literally transformed Syracuse University into the national research institution it is today. The University’s contemporary commitment to veterans builds on this historical legacy, and extends to both class-leading initiatives focused on making an SU degree accessible and affordable to the post-9/11 generation of veterans, and also programs designed to position Syracuse University as the employer of choice for military veterans, members of the Guard and Reserve, and military family members.

Commitment to a Diverse and Inclusive Campus Community
Syracuse University maintains an inclusive learning environment in which students, faculty, administrators, staff, curriculum, social activities, governance, and all other aspects of campus life reflect a diverse, multi-cultural, and international worldview. The University community recognizes and values the many similarities and differences among individuals and groups. At Syracuse, we are committed to preparing students to understand, live among, appreciate, and work in an inherently diverse country and world made up of people with different ethnic and racial backgrounds, military backgrounds, religious beliefs, socio-economic status, cultural traditions, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities. To do so, we commit ourselves to promoting a community that celebrates and models the principles of diversity and inclusivity.
