Multiple Tenure-Track Faculty Positions

The Department of Information Systems invites applications for four tenure-track faculty positions starting August 2024. One of these positions is at the assistant professor level and the other three are open rank. One open rank position is preferably in the area of human centered computing and the other open rank position is preferably in the area of data or business analytics, and the other two positions are in any area that will complement and extend our current strengths, including but not limited to AI, data science, human centered computing, health informatics, software engineering, and computer education. More information about research interests of our faculty can be found on our Research webpage.

Candidates with research interests cross-cutting multiple areas are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates must have earned a Ph.D. in related fields no later than August 2024. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who are members of groups that historically have been under-represented in the professoriate, and individuals who are willing to contribute to the diversity mission of the university and the department.

More information about the position and complete application requirements are available at

Applications for the positions must be submitted as PDF files via Interfolio.
