The Department of Media and Information (M&I) at Michigan State University (MSU) seeks an innovative, dynamic individual to fill a full-time, tenure stream position at the assistant or associate professor level who can connect the creative and research approaches in the department, college, and university. We are particularly interested in someone who uses human-centered approaches to design, and is interested in emerging technologies, such as virtual reality, augmented reality, games, gamification, autonomous vehicles, Internet of things, smart homes, health technologies, neuro/biosensors, wearable devices, tangible computing, and other new technologies that are reshaping the world around us. We also value interests in socially relevant topics and making positive change in the world. Our ideal candidate both builds new things in the world and seeks to understand the impacts of the things they build, integrating the “arts” and “sciences” in their work.

Candidates will be expected to gain visibility through juried creative works and/or peer-reviewed academic research publications. Given our strong interdisciplinary culture we welcome applications from individuals from a diverse range of disciplinary and methodological traditions who thrive in a vibrant academic environment. Faculty members are also expected to pursue external funding to support their research and/or creative activity. In addition, candidates will teach in our undergraduate and graduate programs, as well as advise graduate students on projects, theses, and dissertations. Expected start date is August 16, 2019.

M&I is a top-five ranked, research and grant-active department. The department’s 31 faculty have core interests that focus on the study of technology and society, human-technology interaction, and technological systems. The M&I faculty was deliberately recruited from a range of disciplines, including communication, computer science, media, human-computer interaction, management, psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, science and technology studies (STS), and design to complement and create a unique intellectual energy. This environment takes the best and most useful elements of various disciplines to create novel insights. The department strives to promote work that is cross-disciplinary and transdisciplinary. Such endeavors expand our knowledge in new and innovative ways.
