Hello all, and happy new year -

The University of Chicago is seeking an experienced information architect to
work on a contract basis for a website redesign project in January. The IA

card sorting, surveys, focus groups, interviews and similar information
architecture methodology, to define business and user requirements and
create recommended information architecture and supporting wireframes or
prototypes.

? A minimum of three years of professional experience in information
architecture and/or interaction design for websites and web applications ;
