Full Text of JOE Listing:

The successful candidate will conduct outstanding research in Privacy and/or Information Security and will contribute to our excellence in multi-disciplinary research at the intersection of data science, social science, and decision science. We are seeking candidates with strong backgrounds in one of a variety of possible fields (including Information Systems, Economics, Engineering, Decision Research, Organizational Behavior, Computer Science, or Information Security) who are interested in investigating topics at the overlaps of privacy/information security, social science, and policy. Analytical and/or empirical quantitative backgrounds are particularly desirable, and so is the ability to collaborate with other scholars and units on campus on interdisciplinary research. The successful candidate will publish in leading peer-reviewed academic journals and/or conference proceedings; teach graduate and undergraduate courses and mentor students; secure extramural research federal funding; and contribute to school/college/university service.
