Following a very successful round of recruitment last year, the School of Information Studies at Charles Sturt University (CSU) is advertising for three more faculty (two tenure-track, one three-year contract), as it continues to grow.

As part of CSU’s Faculty of Education, the School of Information Studies is Australia’s largest provider of online education for the library and information professions. With over 1,700 students, the School has recently implemented a comprehensive program of curriculum renewal, and is experiencing burgeoning enrolments. The School offers highly regarded, industry focused postgraduate and undergraduate courses in library and information studies, with a wide range of specialisations, a stand-alone Masters course in teacher librarianship, and a successful PhD program.

Successful applicants will be expected to teach in at least one, and preferably two, of the following areas of information studies: teacher librarianship; children’s librarianship and literature; management of information agencies; knowledge management; business information; information architecture and web management.

Applications from established academics with a strong research record, and also from early career academics with a recent background in industry, including the corporate sector, are particularly welcome.

Successful candidates would normally be required to work on the CSU campus at Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia, although in some instances an arrangement in which they are based off campus in another location within Australia may be negotiable. For more details, please visit and scroll down to the vacancy with reference number 93782. Applications close on 1 August 2010.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
