deep understanding of information technology and reflect that
understanding in their research and teaching. We seek candidates with

premier IS journals such as Management Information Systems Quarterly
(MISQ) and Information Systems Research (ISR).

Salary is competitive and commensurate with rank and qualifications.
The positions are subject to final budgetary approval. Applications

brief statement of current and future research interests, (c) evidence
of excellence in research, such as journal publications or working
papers and (d) the names and contact information of three references.

submissions, they cannot be reviewed. Please send all materials

The vision of MIS at Fox is to be a worldwide leader in transformative
research and teaching on the design, use, and effects of information
technology in a digital world. In research, our mission is to produce
knowledge that fundamentally transforms the design and use of
information technology by integrating multi-disciplinary perspectives.
In teaching, our mission is to prepare a diverse and changing
population for a life-long pursuit of learning, leadership, and
success with information technology in a connected world.

MIS faculty regularly publish in top journals such as MISQ and ISR. We
are connected to industry and work on applied projects with our
network of corporate partners through the Institute for Business and
Information Technology (IBIT). The MIS department offers
undergraduate, masters, and doctoral programs in information systems
including a very successful required core course in MIS for all
undergraduate business students and a University-wide data science
course. MIS at Fox is a free-standing department that embraces and
demonstrates the vision of IT playing a leading role in higher
education and business. The faculty are major contributors to the
discipline, with leadership roles in major conferences, editorial
positions, and in national initiatives such as the IS Job Index and
National Cyber Analyst Challenge, as well as the forthcoming QVC
Analytics Challenge.

In 2017, U.S. News and World Report ranked the Fox BBA in MIS in the
Top 15 and the Fox graduate programs in Information Systems in the Top
20. The graduate programs include the highly successful MS in IT
auditing and cyber-security and online MS Digital Innovation in
Marketing. Fox MIS faculty were ranked #2 in the world for research
productivity in top IS journals for the 2014-2016 period.

The Fox School mission statement includes a focus on three driving
forces of the economy: globalization, information technology (IT), and
innovation/entrepreneurship. The Fox School programs are among the
best in the world and are highly ranked by the Financial Times, The
Economist, U.S. News and World Report, Forbes, Princeton Review, and
Computerworld. The Online MBA program was ranked #1 two years in a row
