I can’t remember ever before seeing “Computer Science education research” listed as a hiring focus area for a research-based CS department. ”Joint with the School of Education” is a major benefit. Indiana has a strong learning sciences program. A joint position means that you can hire and advise either CS or Education students,and you get access to top-notch faculty colleagues on either side. Another sign that we’re growing up as a field.
The School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University, Bloomington, invites applications for five positions beginning in Fall 2012, in the areas of:
- Computer Science (all subareas)
- Computer Science education research (joint position with School of Education)
- Computer Security
- Social Informational
The School expects continued hiring in the coming years. Positions are open at all levels. Applicants should have a Ph.D.in the relevant area and a well-established record (senior level) or demonstrable potential for excellence in research and teaching (junior level).
