The College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) at Drexel University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in informatics at an assistant professor level. Candidates with an outstanding track record and exceptional leadership in large-scale, multidisciplinary research programs will also be considered at a senior level. Candidates should have a completed doctorate at the time of appointment and a record of high-quality scholarly activities. The research areas of informatics faculty in the College of Computing & Informatics includes library & information science, data curation, data science, data mining, visualization, GIS, smart health & healthcare informatics, human computer interaction and knowledge management. Applications in all the areas will be considered. Successful applicants will be expected to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels, establish strong sponsored research programs, advise undergraduate and graduate students, and be involved in service to the College, the University and the global academic community.

CCI's view of information is broad, multidisciplinary and practical. The College continues to evolve as an innovative leader in educating information professionals in the twenty-first century, combining high quality teaching and research in a broad, multidisciplinary and collaborative environment. As a result of the 2013 merger of The iSchool, College of Information Science & Technology; the Department of Computer Science; and the Department of Computing and Security Technology, we now offer six BS degrees, seven master's degrees, and two PhD degrees (in Computer Science and Information Studies). Full-time PhD students are supported either through faculty research grants from the National Science Foundation, the Institute for Library and Museum Services, NSF-sponsored research Center for Visual & Decision Informatics (CVDI) and other funding agencies. The ALA-accredited MS(LIS) degree is highly ranked, both overall and for specializations in health librarianship, information systems and digital librarianship. All academic programs emphasize applied research. We consider experience in industry a plus.

Members of the Search Committee will be available at the ASIS&T and ALISE annual meetings, iConference and other venues to discuss these open faculty positions.
