Syracuse University's School of Information Studies (The iSchool, ischool.syr.edu) seeks applications for multiple Postdoctoral Scholar positions to start in Fall 2019. In addition to developing their own research with mentorship from a faculty member and participating in the academic life of the school (60% of their time), Scholars will teach two courses per semester during the academic year (40% of their time). The positions are full-time for two years with the second year based on satisfactory performance. Salary is salary is competitive and commensurate with experience, plus benefits.
The successful candidates will experience our "Faculty of One": a highly collegial environment that stresses interdisciplinary collaboration amongst our school's faculty and with other members of the university community and beyond. Our research and teaching often adopt a socio-technical approach, recognizing that important problems are not simply technical nor just about people, but rather require both social and technological insights. We seek applicants who adopt this philosophy in their own research and teaching.
The School is committed to professional development for postdoctoral scholars and provides excellent mentoring and support. A postdoc mentoring plan will be developed for each person. The School's Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning provides resources and support to enable instructors (especially new instructors) to excel in their teaching.
