Job: Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Immersive Storytelling at Carleton University

Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Immersive Storytelling
School Of Journalism and Communication
Carleton University
Ottawa, Ontario
https://carleton.ca/sjc/careers/post-doctoral-fellowship-in-immersive-storytelling/

Application deadline: May 30, 2020

Virtual and augmented reality (VR, AR) are underexplored as storytelling media, despite recent technology advances yielding accessible devices such as the Oculus Rift. Museums regularly experiment with interactive digital technologies (such as AR and VR) as storytelling tools to enhance their exhibits. Tools to present stories in AR/VR typically require technological expertise. Yet, such projects also necessitate an understanding of storytelling and the limitations and opportunities presented by new media.

The Immersive Storytelling Research Group represents an interdisciplinary research collaboration between the School of Journalism and Communication and the School of Information Technology at Carleton University. This research group is led by Co-PIs Dr. Victoria McArthur (School of Journalism and Communication) and Dr. Robert Teather (School of Information Technology). The research team is collaborating on an interdisciplinary project in democratizing AR/VR storytelling.… read more. “Job: Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Immersive Storytelling at Carleton University”
