The Dalhousie School of Information Management (SIM) invites 
applications for a two-year term appointment at the Lecturer level 
commencing 1^st July 2010.

The School offers two graduate programs and contributes to a 
collaboratively delivered undergraduate program. At the graduate level, 
SIM provides the American Library Association (ALA)-accredited Master of 
Library and Information Studies (MLIS) program and the mid-career 
external program Master of Information Management (MIM). At the 
undergraduate level, the School provides core and elective courses in 
the Bachelor of Management program, notably in the provision of the new 
Knowledge Management major.

The School is part of the interdisciplinary Faculty of Management, with 
the Schools of Business Administration, Public Administration, Resource 
and Environmental Studies, and the Marine Affairs Program. The Faculty 
of Management has a unique commitment to values-based management with a 
focus on sustainability and on getting things done. We seek an 
additional colleague who will contribute to, and thrive in, this 
environment. Information about the School may be found at

This position is co-funded by the School, the MIM program and Bachelor 
of Management program. Given this funding imperative, the successful 
candidate will have:


      MLIS or equivalent degree from an accredited program


      Professional experience in the private or public sectors as a
      qualified information professional


      Experience teaching at the graduate level is preferred. Experience
      in undergraduate teaching, as well as with online tools and
      pedagogy, will be an asset


      Prior experience of relevance for marketing the MIM program
      including strong presentation and negotiation skills will be
      important for the principal service contribution of this position.


      Due to the MIM program requirements for this position, research
      experience relating to the private or public sector will be an asset

As the School's strategic goals include continued accreditation of the 
MLIS program, the expectation is that the successful candidate will 
teach one or more required MLIS courses. Therefore, prior experience in 
teaching core courses in such a program will be an asset. The School's 
strategic goals for the Bachelor of Management program include the 
launch of a Knowledge Management major and, therefore, background and 
experience relevant for delivering a core course in KM will be an asset. 
The successful applicant will have professional, research, or prior 
teaching experience relevant for teaching an elective course in the MIM 
program in one of the following three areas of need: Project Management, 
Collaboration, or Governance, Security and Privacy. Marketing of the MIM 
program in the private and public sectors is a required component of 
this position and will require some travel, notably to Ottawa and 
Toronto. Further information about the MIM program may be found at

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and 
permanent residents will be given priority. Dalhousie University is an 
employment equity/affirmative action employer. The University encourages 
applications from qualified Aboriginal people, persons with a 
disability, racially visible persons and women.

continue to be accepted until position is filled.

research interests, and three letters of reference (forwarded under
