    Dear all,

      University College, London (UCL) in London, UK, is looking to recruit a new full time, permanent assistant professor in Library and Information Studies from August 2024. We hope you might consider joining our small but friendly team!

    Please do not hesitate to contact Alison, Programme Director, for any informal enquiries. 



    UCL's Department of Information Studies is seeking an innovative researcher to appoint to a permanent full-time assistant professor role (lecturer in UK terminology), who can teach and research in the broad field of library and information studies. We are particularly interested in applicants who could contribute to ongoing or new research in one or more of the following areas within the field of library and information studies: physical and digital collections, library management, library technologies, scholarly communication, information behaviour and information literacy, cataloguing and classification, and critical approaches to library and information work. The initial teaching focus will be on Master's level teaching, within the MA in Library and Information Studies, with the opportunity to teach on the BSc Information in Society. The successful candidate will also be expected to supervise research students and Masters and undergraduate dissertations, and undertake academic related administrative duties. 


    UCL DIS offers postgraduate qualifications for the library, archive, digital humanities, information and publishing professions, collaborates in the delivery of an inter-faculty BSc in Information Management for Business and is launching a new BSc Information in Society programme at UCL East from 2024.
