The School of Information is participating in a cluster hire in Ecosystem
Genomics. We see applicants in informatics for full-time appointments in
the School of Information or cross appointments with different departments
across campus.

Some of the most challenging issues in understanding the components and
processes of natural and managed ecosystems have a common foundation in
gene-environment interactions.  We are hiring five new faculty members to
contribute to the development of a new program in ecosystem genomics at the
University of Arizona.  We are searching for new colleagues at all
appointment ranks who share an interest in developing active teaching and
research programs in the structural, functional and/or evolutionary
genomics of ecosystems.

The appointee will teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels
and contribute to mentoring students, including those from underrepresented
backgrounds. The appointee will also participate in outreach and contribute
to departmental/college/university service. In these and other ways, the
appointee will develop innovative approaches to enhancing student
engagement, increasing diversity and expanding the university's
collaborations with community and business partners.

The School of Information is an academic department and professional school
in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences at the University of
Arizona, the state’s only public land grant institution. The School of
Information aims to inspire interdisciplinary understanding, diverse
interpretation, creation, and use of the emerging knowledge and information
environments of the 21st century through innovative instruction and
state-of-the-art technology. The School is a place for the
interdisciplinary study of information, broadly conceived, and is focused
on maintaining a progressive agenda tied to preparing students for living,
thinking, and working in the digital age.  The School of Information offers
six degree programs and four graduate certificates. They are: PhD in
Information, MS in Information, MA in Library and Information Science, a BA
in Information Science and eSociety, a BS in Information Science and
Technology and a BA in Information Science and Arts.
