The Educational Communication and Technology program in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University invites applications and nominations for an open rank, tenured/tenure-track position in the area of learning, measurement, and assessment with digital media with primary responsibilities in the graduate program. The ECT programs–the Ph.D. in Educational Communication and Technology (ECT), the M.A. and Advanced Certificate in Digital Media Design for Learning (DMDL), and M.S. in Games for Learning (G4L)–offer graduate instruction in the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of a broad range of digital media-based learning environments, including simulation and games, mobile apps, and online experiences. The programs aspire to contribute to the ideals of social equity and an informed and participatory citizenry through design and scholarship.


An earned doctorate is required in Learning Sciences, Educational Psychology, Cognitive Science, Educational Technology, Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Science, Data Science, or a related field. Candidates should have a strong program of theory-based research on the design or use of digital media for learning, measurement, or assessment that advances the field. Research specializations that include new and emerging learning-related areas, such as educational data mining, learning analytics, or visual analytics, are of particular interest. The ECT programs are interested in theoretical and applied research on learning in traditional and nontraditional settings and learning outcomes.


In addition to service at the program, school, and university levels, responsibilities will include: (1) engagement in an active program of scholarly research related to the design, use, and study of digital media for learning, teaching, or assessment; (2) design and teaching of courses primarily at the graduate level; (3) advisement and supervision of undergraduates and of graduate student masters theses and doctoral dissertations; (4) development of research grant proposals to appropriate federal agencies, foundations, and private donors.

NYU’s dynamic Global Network University includes NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU Shanghai, and international programs and academic centers around the world. NYU Steinhardt faculty may have the opportunity to engage in research and teaching at these global study and research sites.
