The electronic structure of spinel-type chalcogenide CuIr$$_{2}$$S$$_{4}$$, which exhibits a metal-insulator transition (MIT) as a function of temperature, has been studied by photoemission spectroscopy (PES). Below the transition temperature $$T_{mathrm{MI}}$$, the valence-band PES spectra indicate a gap formation, while the overall valence-band structure is shifted to the higher binding-energy side. The line shape of the Ir 4${it f}$ core-level PES spectra shows a dramatic change across $$T_{mathrm{MI}}$$, which may be associated with the variation of the Ir 5${it d}$ electron states.
