University of Washington, The Information School
Application Deadline: December 2, 2022
The University of Washington Information School is at an exciting juncture, as we broaden and deepen the teaching profile of our Master of Information Management (MSIM) Program by offering two new positions. These positions will contribute to excellence in teachings and service in a diverse, intellectually stimulating, multi-disciplinary environment with an emphasis on social impact.
Information Management is an emerging field with the purpose of designing, developing, managing, and using information with insight and innovation to support decision making and create value for individuals, organizations, communities, and societies. Within this space, we are seeking two faculty members who can complement iSchool expertise in Business Intelligence/Business Analytics and Program and Product Management.
Business Intelligence/Analytics is an area of study concerned with managing the process of transforming data into information for organizational insight. This specialization has a managerial/strategic focus, but also incorporates modern analytics and data warehousing toolsets to provide a foundational exposure to key technologies.
Program and Product Management is an area of study that prepares current and aspiring program and product managers, and consultants to lead organizations of all sizes and sectors in developing and managing strategic and operational information-related initiatives.
The UW Information School is dedicated to hiring faculty who will enhance our inclusion, diversity, equity, access, and sovereignty (IDEAS) mission and vision through their research, teaching, and service. As information systems and institutions serve increasingly diverse and global constituencies, it is vital to understand the ways in which differences in gender, class, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, national and cultural boundaries, national origin, worldview, intellectual origin, ability, and other identities can both divide us and offer us better ways of thinking and working. The Information School faculty are committed to preparing professionals who work in an increasingly diverse and global society by promoting equity and justice for all individuals, actively working to eliminate barriers and obstacles created by institutional discrimination.
The successful candidates will join a broad-based, inclusive Information School, whose faculty members pursue their scholarship, teaching, and service across multiple degree programs and are committed to the values of leadership, innovation, and diversity. The University of Washington is an institution that encourages inclusive research and community outreach, situated between the Puget Sound and Lake Washington, in the city of Seattle, on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish people. Seattle is a rapidly growing, dynamic, and diverse metropolitan area with a leading technology sector and vibrant civic sector. Applicants may find further information about the Information School at: ischool.uw.edu.
The positions are full-time 9-month non-tenure track appointments at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor with an anticipated start date of September 1, 2023. All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, research and service.
