We expect candidates to successfully teach both undergraduate and graduate courses and to design and deliver courses in various formats, including online and hybrid modalities. The position carries a typical teaching load of three courses during the Fall and Spring semesters.
DIS is committed to creating a learning community that reflects and enacts the values of diversity, equity and inclusion that inform academic excellence. We encourage applicants who may enhance our representational diversity but especially whose teaching and community engagement will contribute to diverse, equitable, and inclusive learning and working environments for our students, staff, and faculty.


An earned doctorate or equivalent terminal degree in Information and Library Science or related field would be preferred, but a master’s degree or equivalent degree may be considered if there is extensive and relevant industry experience demonstrated.

Candidates must demonstrate evidence of effective teaching in broad areas of Information and Library Science or related fields. The ideal candidate will have a broad knowledge and research experience of information and library science, with a strong interest in teaching to students from a variety of disciplines.
