Subject: ITec Position

YORK UNIVERSITY -- As part of a university-wide initiative in
information technology, Atkinson College, York University's second
largest Faculty, has developed a series of interdisciplinary degree
programs which combine information technology with studies in fields
such as IT and social issues, health informatics, professional
writing and administrative studies. The common core of these programs
have been agreed upon among the three York Faculties involved in the
development of the programs (Arts, Atkinson and Glendon), which work
in concert with one another.

The Atkinson ITec Program draws for its specialization on the
resources of its departments of Administrative Studies, Mathematics,
Nursing, and Science and Technology Studies, as well as on Glendon
College's School of Translation. Planned to commence in September
1999, these programs are expected to grow to some 300-400 students in
the next few years.

At Atkinson, the Core program is administered by the Department of
Science and Technology Studies. The position is tenure-track, with
rank commensurate with qualifications and experience, and could carry
tenure at the outset. Applicants should have a PhD and a strong
record of teaching and research related to information technology.
Applicants with research interests in one or more of the following
areas are especially encouraged to apply: systems analysis; systems
design and delivery; information management; health informatics;
organizational structures; risk management; and the economic,
historical, philosophical and social implications of IT and its
evolving role in society. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the
programs, the appointment could be in one or more of the departments
of Nursing, Mathematics, Science and Technology Studies, or
Administrative Studies.

Enquiries and applications, with curriculum vitae, should be sent to:

Luigi M. Bianchi, ITec Search Coordinator
Department of Science and Technology Studies
York University, 4700 Keele Street, Toronto, Ontario M3J 1P3

Applicants must also arrange for three letters of reference to be

teaching. More information on the programs can be found at

A review of applications will begin June 1, 1999, and continue until
the position is filled. York University adheres to a policy of
employment equity, including affirmative action for women faculty. In
accordance with Canadian immigration requirements, this advertisement
