JOB: NYU Shanghai, Interactive Media and Business Professor

NYU Shanghai

Interactive Media and Business Professor


NYU Shanghai is currently inviting applications for a position at the rank of assistant, associate, or full professor in Interactive Media and Business. We seek candidates who have completed a PhD or DBA at the intersection of emerging media and business, and who exhibit interests in both critical scholarship and creative practice, to join an exciting new undergraduate joint major built on two existing NYU Shanghai majors (the Interactive Media Arts major, and the Business major).

Terms of employment at NYU Shanghai are comparable to U.S. institutions with respect to research start-up funds and compensation, and they include housing subsidies and educational subsidies for children. Faculty may also spend time at NYU New York and other sites of the NYU Global Network, engaging in both research and teaching.

The Interactive Media and Business (IMB) major is where innovation and business meet through emerging media technology. IMB teaches how innovative ideas combine with technology, creativity, and business principles to yield viable products, services, and experiences. Our project-based curriculum explores new models for creation, innovation, and entrepreneurship through the development of software and hardware, the manipulation of digital media, the design and fabrication of material objects, the construction of virtual and physical spaces, and engagement with broad communities. Our seminars encourage study of the history and philosophy of emerging media, as they impact society as a whole.

Faculty are expected to teach established core and elective courses, and also to develop their own electives based on their unique background and interests. Current elective offerings include courses on creativity and innovation, management and design, rapid prototyping, entrepreneurship, product design, and financial technologies. Faculty also participate in program and school-wide initiatives and committee work. A commitment to undergraduate education and enthusiastic dedication to the new IMB major are essential.

NYU Shanghai has a diverse and international student population. Strong consideration will be given to candidates who have worked in institutions with international student populations.


We seek candidates whose work intersects with the current curriculum and research needs of IMB. This includes, but is not limited to: data acquisition, analysis, and presentation; digitally-enabled products and services; e-commerce; financial systems and technology; design and business ethnography; blockchain and cryptocurrency; hardware prototyping and manufacturing; and social impact entrepreneurship. Strong consideration will be given to candidates with a record of successful advancement of their own innovations in their respective fields.
