University of Colorado Boulder
Open Rank Instructor of Information Science

The newly established Department of Information Science in the College of Media, Communication and Information at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) seeks outstanding candidates for a non-tenure track open rank instructor position starting in Fall 2018. Successful candidates will help shape the future of Information Science—as a Department and as a discipline. With a faculty with strengths in both computer science and the social sciences, the Department takes a progressive approach to the discipline of Information Science, focusing on human–data interaction in all its diverse forms and contexts.

The primary responsibility of the instructor position will be to teach multiple lower-division undergraduate courses in computing and computational thinking. There may be opportunities for candidates with skills in other areas of information science to fill other course needs. The candidate filling the position will be rostered with the department faculty, and may participate in the governance of the department especially in relation to undergraduate curricular matters.

CU Boulder is a research university with about 25,000 undergraduates and 6,000 graduate students. The city of Boulder is a high-tech hub, with the highest concentration of tech startups in the US at 2.5 times the density of Silicon Valley, according to the Kauffman Foundation. Boulder is also home to multiple national labs and institutes, including NCAR, NIST, NOAA, and NREL. Located at the base of the Rocky Mountains yet only 27 miles from Denver, Boulder is frequently named one of the most desirable places in the US to live.
