Two positions at Tech

Well, it’s been forever since I’ve had a chance to post. Lame… I’ll try to write a real post soon, but in the mean time, please enjoy this lovely job ad for two positions at Georgia Tech. If you do new media work at the intersection of theory and practice, please consider applying; we’d love to have you on the LCC team.

Budget permitting, the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture at the Georgia Institute of Technology will make two tenure-track assistant professor appointments.
1) Film and Media Studies with an emphasis on the intersection of traditional and digital media. Preference for an established research trajectory and teaching experience that could include film history, film theory, media studies, and digital technology with possible additional interests in television and cross-cultural issues.
2) Digital Media Theory and Practice. Requires evidence of sophisticated digital practice and theoretical insight in one or more of the following areas: interactive cinema or documentary, enhanced television, immersive environments, multi-user environments, games as social networks, procedural art, electronic literature, or information architecture. Both positions offer the opportunity for graduate and undergraduate teaching. Normal teaching load is 2/2. Ph.D. or appropriate terminal degree required for both positions.

Georgia Tech’s School of Literature, Communication and Culture offers a B.S. in Science, Technology, and Culture, a B.S. in Computational Media, an M.S. in Information Design and Technology, and a Ph.D. in Digital Media Studies. It also co-sponsors minors in Women, Science, and Technology and African-American Studies and provides humanities and communications courses for all Georgia Tech undergraduates.

Candidates are asked to send a C.V. and a letter stating research interests and pedagogical approach. Applicants for the Digital Media Theory and Practice position should also send a pointer to an on-line portfolio. All applications should be sent to Prof. Kenneth Knoespel, Chair, LCC, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA 30332-0165. We will begin considering applications on November 15. The Georgia Institute of Technology is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer. Minority candidates are encouraged to apply.
