The School of Library and Information Science at Simmons University in Boston invites applications for a contract faculty position to begin July 1, 2020 (start date negotiable). As a mission-driven institution, we invite applications from library and information science professionals who share our passion and commitment to empowering people with information.

School of Library and Information Science at Simmons University combines theory with professional practice to enable students to succeed, thrive, and become leaders in the field. Simmons University is a small, highly collegial, and dynamic university located in the heart of Boston’s world-renowned Longwood Medical Area.  We make use of the vibrant library, archives, cultural heritage and technology community in Boston to enhance our faculty and student experiences.

We seek an innovative educator with dedication to graduate teaching and mentoring, and a commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration inside and outside the University. The successful candidate will be expected to teach on a 12-month contract, advise students, contribute to curriculum development, and provide service to the university. We are especially interested in candidates whose areas of expertise include:

--theoretical and practical aspects of information organization and bibliographic cataloging;
--semantic Web standards (linked data, RDF, RDFS, OWL, SKOS, ontology development, microdata);
--archives of visual resources and records management.

As a University committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we seek candidates with a demonstrated ability to work with students across a broad range of social and personal identities and perspectives. We particularly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups.

We are open to individuals interested in, and qualified for, either of the following positions. Please note that we are filling only one position at this time:

--Non-Tenure Track (NTT) Assistant Professor - Candidates will have a Ph.D. in library and information science or a related field by the time the appointment begins. Assistant Professor NTT appointments do not carry research expectations, but an interest in engaging in pedagogical research is a plus. Assistant Professors NTT carry a teaching load of seven courses a year (or the equivalent). Candidates will have strong teaching experience, with demonstrated excellence and innovation in teaching.

--Professor of Practice - Candidates will have an M.S. or M.A. in library and information science or a related field, and substantial professional experience (five years or more). Appointments may be made at the Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor of Practice rank, depending on experience. Professors of Practice carry a teaching load of seven courses a year (or the equivalent), and must maintain currency in the field through consulting or active engagement with the professional community. Candidates will have demonstrated teaching experience or strong potential to excel at teaching.
