The Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto invites applications for a tenure-stream appointment as Director of its Museum Studies Program. The appointment will be at the rank of Associate or Full Professor and will commence on January 1, 2011.

We seek candidates with excellent research and teaching abilities and a commitment to shaping the future of the Faculty and the fields of museum studies, cultural heritage, and information. The Faculty seeks a scholar who transcends traditional divisions and we invite applications from candidates with active research projects within one or more of the following areas: (i) museum and cultural heritage studies; (ii) museum management and leadership; (iii) collections management; (iv) interpretation & meaning making; (v) museums, information and communication technology; and/or (vi) cultural policy, representation, and identity. The candidate’s research should fit with the Faculty’s focus and mission.

The Faculty's Strategic Plan recognizes that society's information practices are being reconfigured and transformed by material shifts in infrastructures as well as political and cultural shifts in our attitudes toward information as a social phenomenon. In this context, a senior faculty member is sought to bring leadership to the rethinking and reshaping of the museum and cultural heritage professions, and to leading an exploration of the future of cultural and heritage organizations through innovative teaching and collaborative research projects. The appointee will take on leadership of an outstanding masters program in museum studies and have the possibility to start a doctoral program and an Executive Master's program.

The University of Toronto offers the opportunity to teach, conduct research and live in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. The Faculty of Information provides a context in which to work in an emerging interdisciplinary environment and in a range of collaborative programs including Addiction Studies; Aging, Palliative and Supportive Care Across the Life Course; Book History and Print Culture; Environment; Knowledge Media Design; Sexual Diversity Studies; Women's Health; and Women and Gender Studies.
