Founded in 2004, the NKU College of Informatics has experienced dramatic enrollment growth: a 3X increase in its tech majors, a 2X increase overall.  Its innovations have been both curricular (only the 3rd undergraduate Data Science program in the US when launched in 2013) and co-curricular (an AASCU and NACE award-winning virtual co-op program).  Active in NCWIT, its Computer Science department faculty is over one third female, twice the national average.

At Northern Kentucky University, we use "informatics" as an umbrella term for disciplines ranging from cybersecurity to journalism, from health communication to business information systems. In today's world, these subjects are intertwined, and we value cross-disciplinary collaboration.  The college offers 12 BS degrees and 5 Masters degrees and enrolls approximately 2,200 students.

Now in 2018, NKU is making significant additional investments in faculty and staff in the STEM/H fields, and the College of Informatics is a major focus for this investment. Accordingly, there are an unprecedented number of opportunities available in the college this year.

We are a young innovative college in a young agile university. Our campus sits on a hilltop overlooking downtown Cincinnati, and our location in a large metropolitan area brings many benefits. Griffin Hall, our Informatics building, is a regional landmark. Next door is the new $105M NKU Health Innovation Center, creating new interdisciplinary research and outreach opportunities around population health.

We seek people who are enthusiastic about teaching, research, creative activity, to join us as co-creators in any of the positions listed below.
