Information Systems Teaching Track Multiple Positions - Beginning Fall 2020
Carnegie Mellon University is a research and education leader in the intersection of technology, organizations, and society. We prepare students to creatively identify and analyze data to form actionable insights, to develop information technology to support mission objectives, to maintain high levels of information security, and to lead change in managerial and policy contexts. Carnegie Mellon University is multidisciplinary to the core, and the Information Systems programs draw from the best of our Heinz College and Dietrich College. As a community, we are grounded in real-world problem solving, drive innovation, nurture diversity, and develop compassionate leaders.
We are in search of colleagues who are excited about teaching and helping students learn. We are interested in candidates who can teach in one or more of the areas of data science, computer science, or information systems. We have several broad areas of interest, including but not limited to, software development, mobile computing, information security and assurance, information technology for development, data science and big data, and design of user-centered systems. However, we give higher priority to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work rather than to the sub-area of specialization. A record of teaching effectiveness and/or relevant industry experience is expected. See our websites for more information about our Bachelor’s and Master’s programs:
