The Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services invites applicants for two tenure-track, nine-month academic year positions at the Assistant or Associate Professor level to join the internationally recognized Department of Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences (ITLS).  Applications are currently being accepted for one position in Learning Sciences and one position in Instructional Technology.  All relevant specialization areas are welcome.

The anticipated start date is August 1, 2019.

The successful candidate is expected to develop a cutting-edge research program, supervise graduate students, and teach graduate and undergraduate courses delivered in face-to-face, broadcast, and online formats. Candidates will have expertise in relevant theories, technologies, or methods and be prepared to teach existing course offerings in the department, especially in the M.A. and undergraduate programs, and propose innovative new courses that will serve the needs of the student population. Successful candidates will be receptive to opportunities for collaboration within the department, college, or university. Candidates at the Associate level will have an established record of productivity and effectiveness that merits tenure at Utah State University, a Carnegie Doctoral land-grant university of higher research activity.
