Tenure-Track Faculty Positions within the MIT Media Laboratory

The MIT Media Lab (www.media.mit.edu) is seeking candidates to fill
two tenure-track faculty positions.

The Media Lab is an anti-disciplinary research organization focusing
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
industrial sponsors and other Media Lab research groups; supervise
masters 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.

To apply, please fill out the application at http://facultysearch.media.mit.edu/
Application deadline: January 16, 2011

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