Rutgers University’s Department of Library and Information Science in the School of Communication and Information seeks faculty for tenure-track or tenured positions who complement the strengths of our existing faculty and support our needs for research, teaching, and administration. Our foci include:
- People and Community – the information needs of people in diverse social, organizational, cultural, and health contexts and the design of responsive information services, networks, and systems for libraries, archives, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and other information agencies.
- Data, Information and Knowledge – the dynamic combination of data, information, and knowledge, and their creation, analysis, organization, use, and preservation to provide meaningful and adaptive services to individuals, organizations, and communities.
- Information Systems and Services – their design, implementation, and evaluation, including socio-technical systems that enable access to information, and learning how to optimize their usefulness in meeting organizational, community, and individual goals.
- Empowerment, Engagement and Action – scholarly and professional leadership and the capacity to design, develop, and make available cultural, intellectual, and technological records and systems to enable people to improve their health, wellbeing, and their lives.
We especially invite candidates who will take leadership roles in our highly ranked Master of Information (MI), our rapidly growing Information Technology and Informatics (ITI) undergraduate major, and our inter-disciplinary Ph.D. program. We are a charter member of the iSchool caucus and are in an exciting period of transformation and growth.
The ideal candidate’s scholarship would focus on one or more area above, bringing together research in areas of social computing, information studies, librarianship, health informatics, data science, computational social science, human-computer interaction, and related fields.
