The successful candidate will join a broad-based, inclusive Information School that offers multiple degree programs and is committed to the values of leadership, innovation, and diversity.  

Teaching faculty are an integral part of the faculty of the iSchool, teaching across undergraduate and graduate programs. We provide mentorship and a career path for teaching faculty, including opportunities for leadership within the School. This is a full-time, 9-month appointment at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor. This position includes faculty voting rights and is not tenure eligible. Faculty at the rank of Assistant Teaching Professor typically teach for 9 months per year (excluding summer) although opportunities for summer teaching may be available.

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 faculty who can complement iSchool expertise in Business Intelligence/Data Analytics. 

The University of Washington is a vibrant crucible of 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 peoples. Seattle is a rapidly growing, dynamic, and diverse metropolitan area.  

The UW Information School is dedicated to hiring faculty that will enhance diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their research (as applicable), 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, 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.
