Position Details


Position Description

The University of Washington Information School is at an exciting juncture, as we broaden and deepen the teaching profile of our Master of Information Management (MSIM) Program by offering a new position. This position will contribute to excellence in teaching and service in a diverse, intellectually stimulating, multi-disciplinary environment with an emphasis on social impact.

Information Management is an emerging field with the purpose of designing, developing, managing, and using information with insight and innovation to support decision making and create value for individuals, organizations, communities, and societies.  Within this space, we are seeking a faculty member who can complement iSchool expertise in Business Intelligence/Business Analytics.  

Business Intelligence/Analytics is an area of study concerned with managing the process of transforming data into information for organizational insight. This specialization has a managerial/strategic focus, but also incorporates modern analytics and data warehousing toolsets to provide a foundational exposure to key technologies.

The UW Information School is dedicated to hiring faculty who will enhance our inclusion, diversity, equity, access, and sovereignty (IDEAS) mission and vision through their research, teaching, and service. As information systems and institutions serve increasingly diverse and global constituencies, it is vital to understand the ways in which differences in gender, class, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation, national and cultural boundaries, national origin, worldview, intellectual origin, ability, and other identities can both divide us and offer us better ways of thinking and working. The Information School faculty are committed to preparing professionals who work in an increasingly diverse and global society by promoting equity and justice for all individuals, actively working to eliminate barriers and obstacles created by institutional discrimination. 

The successful candidate will join a broad-based, inclusive Information School, whose faculty members pursue their scholarship, teaching, and service across multiple degree programs and are committed to the values of leadership, innovation, and diversity. The University of Washington is an institution that encourages inclusive research and community outreach, situated between the Puget Sound and Lake Washington, in the city of Seattle, on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish people. Seattle is a rapidly growing, dynamic, and diverse metropolitan area with a leading technology sector and vibrant civic sector. Applicants may find further information about the Information School at: ischool.uw.edu.  

The position is a full-time 9-month non-tenure track appointment at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor with an anticipated start date of September 1, 2024. All University of Washington faculty engage in teaching, scholarship and service. 

The base salary range for this position will be $10,500 to $11,500  per month ($95,500 - $103,500 per 9-month academic year), commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination.

Qualifications

Candidates must have:

  • A minimum of a Master's degree in a relevant field (or foreign equivalent). Relevant degree must be conferred by date of appointment.

  • Evidence of excellence (or potential for excellence) in teaching.

  • Demonstrated teaching or industry expertise relevant to BI/Analytics.

  • Three years of relevant professional experience in business intelligence/analytics.
