Faculty positions at Indiana

[----- The Types Forum, http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/types -----]


The School of Informatics is the most important academic initiative at
Indiana University in the past 30 years. Informatics is the study of
information and information technology in its applied and social
contexts. The State of Indiana has committed new base funding that will
allow the School to hire in excess of 30 new faculty at the Bloomington
campus over the next few years.

Tenure-track positions at all ranks are available in the mathematical
foundations of informatics. Areas of possible interest include applied
logic, information theory, mathematics in AI, non-standard models of
computation, computational economics, probabilistic models in expert
systems, and statistical informatics. Candidates whose interests
integrate several aspects of mathematics in informatics will be
considered especially interesting, as will candidates whose interests
complement the school's existing strengths in bioinformatics, chemical
informatics, human-computer informatics and social informatics. In
addition to courses directly related to the candidate's research
expertise, candidates who can teach core areas of the informatics
curriculum are preferred. Senior candidates should have a strong record
of funding.

The School has strong ties to Indiana University's programs in Computer
Science, Math, Physics, and Cognitive Science, and to reseach centers in
bioinformatics and genomics, biocomplexity, and social informatics, as
well as statistics and pervasive technology laboratories; joint
appointments with units sponsoring these programs may be possible. We
have excellent work conditions including low teaching loads, attractive
salaries, and world-class computing and library facilities. Located on
the rolling wooded hills of southern Indiana, Bloomington is a culturally
thriving college town with moderate cost of living.

We especially encourage applications from small research teams who wish
to collaborate with one another at IU in the School of Informatics. Each
candidate should apply separately, and include in their statement the
rationale for hiring the entire group. Applicants should submit a
curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching emphasizing
informatics, and the names of three references (six for associate and
full professors) online at


Review of applications will begin immediately; the search will remain
open until the positions are filled.

Indiana University is an equal opportunity / affirmative action employer.
We are committed to employing quality faculty who will enhance the rich
diversity of our academic community.
