Senior and junior appointments in interactive media

Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Communication, and Culture is an
internationally recognized leader in redefining humanities-based education
for the digital era. The school has brought together a uniquely strong
faculty in film studies, hypertext, interactive narrative, electronic art,
media and performance studies, and in cultural studies of science and
technology. The research life of the School includes Configurations, the
journal of the Society for Literature and Science, and the film journal
Postscript. The School's faculty are engaged in new media project
development both in LCC's dedicated New Media Center and in collaboration
with innovative computer scientists through Georgia Tech's Center for
Graphics, Visualization, and Usability. The School offers a B.S. in
Science, Technology, and Culture and an M.S. in Information Design and
Technology. A Ph.D. is in the planning stages.

The School plans to make two appointments in interactive media: one senior
(professor or associate professor) and one junior (assistant professor). It
seeks candidates who are practitioner-theorists with expertise in one or
more of the following specialties: digital art and design, simulation and
game design, 3-D computing, humanities computing, electronic journalism,
digital filmmaking and videography and/or educational applications of new
media. Applicants should have either a Ph.D. in an appropriate field or an
appropriate terminal degree. Candidates for the senior position should have
significant publication and/or digital products. Send cover letter and CV
to Professor Janet Murray, Chair, Faculty Search, School of Literature,
Communication, and Culture, Georgia Institute of Technology Atlanta, GA
30332-0165. We will begin reviewing applications on November 1 and continue
until positions are filled. The Georgia Institute of Technology is an equal
opportunity/affirmative action employer. Minority candidates are encouraged
to apply.
