The School of Information Sciences (http://www.ischool.pitt.edu) at the
University of Pittsburgh is seeking to fill a faculty position in Archives,
Preservation, and Records management at an Assistant/Associate Professor level
- Position #27041 (Non-tenure stream).

  
The School is a top-ranked information school (iSchool) offering a wide
variety of multidisciplinary opportunities, including an undergraduate program
(BSIS), Master's programs in information science (MSIS), telecommunications &
networking (MST), library & information science (MLIS), and Ph.D. programs.
The iSchool at Pitt emphasizes the synthesis of people, information and
technology, and offers opportunities for research, instruction, and service
spanning the diverse needs and interests of an information-intensive, multi-
cultural, and increasingly digital society. The School is
seeking candidates with a strong commitment to research as well as graduate
and undergraduate education.

  
We are looking for an experienced practitioner and mature scholar in the
Archives, Preservation, and Records Management area who can demonstrate an
understanding in APRM, specifically

  * Historical and contemporary archival theory and practice
  * Current standards and best practices surrounding appraisal, accessioning, arrangement, description, representation, manipulation, and preservation or records held in stewardship
  * The complexities of care presented by both analog and digital formats, and
  * US and international archival policy and traditions.
  
We are also interested in someone who is comfortable with helping to lead our
program into digital stewardship or curation in both research and teaching.
The new APRM faculty member is expected to be a liaison with the Pittsburgh
regional archives community as well as regional and national professional
associations. We expect candidates for this position to possess strong
experience in such community and professional work and to have excellent
interpersonal and communication skills.

  
Our School has supported one of the leading APRM graduate programs in the
United States for many years. We presently have three faculty members teaching
in the APRM program, including a leading scholar in archival studies; an
assistant professor working in science and technology studies, social and
cultural theory, public and applied history, and archives; and a lecturer with
a joint appointment in Art History and Architecture and focusing on archives
and the digital humanities. We support a large number of doctoral students
working in the APRM area, and our School has produced a substantial number of
the current faculty in this field.

  
Candidates who bridge disciplinary areas are specifically encouraged to
apply. Successful candidates will demonstrate a strong
interest and current awareness of the technological and cultural context in
which their knowledge contributes to issues of contemporary
society. A record of collaboration with other scholars is
highly desirable.

  
As the school offers an online degree program in addition to on-campus
programs, candidates with complementary expertise and experience in
educational technologies are encouraged to apply (although there is no
expectation of teaching APRM courses online).

  
Candidates applying for the position(s) are expected to hold an earned
doctorate or the equivalent in academic or professional experience. Applicants
should present a record of effective teaching, research, and related scholarly
activities. Electronic applications should be sent to [log in to unmask]
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the names,
addresses (with e-mail), and telephone numbers of three references. For full
consideration, applications must be received by January 4,
2013. There will be members of the Search Committee at the
ALISE meeting who will be available to discuss the position with applicants.
