Job Title: Assistant Professor (Tenure-Track)
The Library and Information Science program in the Faculty of Information and Media Studies (FIMS) at The University of Western Ontario invites applications for a probationary appointment (tenure-track) at the rank of Assistant Professor. We are particularly interested in candidates with a research record and interests in the areas of workplace labour and management issues, as they pertain to librarianship, and the ability to teach our required MLIS offering in “Managing and Working in Information Organizations.” An ability to offer courses that might be cross-listed with our other graduate programs in the Faculty or to contribute to the curriculum of our undergraduate program would also be an asset. The normal teaching workload in FIMS is four half-courses per academic year.
Library and Information Science education at FIMS is offered in research-intensive graduate programs, including a new joint program in Health Information Science, that currently house approximately 220 MLIS students and more than 25 PhD candidates. Information about the Faculty and descriptions of its courses are available at http://www.fims.uwo.ca.
Applicants should have a PhD completed or nearing completion in LIS or a related discipline. Appointment will commence July 1, 2013.
Position is subject to budget approval. Applicants should have fluent written and oral communication skills in English. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be given priority. The University of Western Ontario is committed to employment equity and welcomes applications from all qualified women and men, including visible minorities, aboriginal people and persons with disabilities.
