[TEACHING JOB] Two Faculty Positions in art & design at the MIT Media Lab

MIT Media Lab seeks candidates for two tenure-track faculty positions
An anti-disciplinary research organization, the Media Lab focuses on the invention of new technologies that radically improve the way people live, learn, express, work, and play. Candidates should have a record of original thinking, action, and impact in the arts, design, and quality of life. Applicants should be willing to take risks commensurate with the Media Lab’s willingness to look beyond known boundaries and disciplines.

Successful candidates will establish and lead their own research group within the Media Lab; pursue creative work of highest international standard; engage in collaborative projects with corporate members and other Media Lab research groups; supervise master’s and doctoral students; and participate in the Media Arts and Sciences academic program.

The Media Lab welcomes applications from candidates interested in establishing research programs in: music, performance, arts, design, food, fashion, architecture, games, things we have not thought of, or any combination thereof.

Appointments will be within the Media Arts and Sciences academic program, principally at the assistant professor level. A doctorate is not necessary, but evidence of extreme creativity is.

The Media Lab is building a diverse community of scholars, and strongly encourages applications from women and members of under-represented groups.

Application deadline: February 1, 2012
