The School of Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is hiring two open rank faculty positions in information policy.
The first position is looking for applicants with a strong background in one or more of the following areas: information policy, intellectual property, or legal/policy issues relevant to at least one of the following areas: information professions, digital libraries, management of information agencies, or information access.
The second position is focused on applicants with a strong background in information policy, including, but not limited to, ethical, cultural, technological or political issues as they relate to the information professions, systems, and infrastructures that make up our global information society.
Both positions will largely be focused on supporting our graduate programs, but opportunities to teach within the undergraduate program will be available. Applicants should be comfortable teaching a required course in our MLIS program, develop advanced graduate courses in their area of expertise, and be ready to support our (excellent) information policy PhD students. Both positions would likely result in close affiliation with the Center for Information Policy Research.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about these positions, or SOIS generally. I also plan to be at ALISE 2011 in San Diego, in case anyone wants to sit down for an informal (and unofficial) chat. Deadline for priority consideration is December 10, 2010. See the official job postings (linked above) for more details.
